creative directions

A friendly group where you can develop friendships & ignite new passions

Creative Directions is a group for adults that uses art workshops to help people experiencing mental health difficulties get back on track. Our artists have designed creative activities to help you express yourself and develop new friendships, learn new skills and ignite new passions. The workshops are free to any adult experiencing mental health difficulties or feelings of loneliness and stress.

Creative Directions is designed to be flexible, so just come along when you can. Sessions are held every Thursday at The Point. From 10am – 12pm you can come along and make use of our free art materials in whatever way you wish. From 1.30pm – 3.30pm, take part in an artist-led creative session. In this session, you’ll work with an artist to explore their artform – lately the group has had a go at sculpture, ceramics, DJ skills, poetry and percussion.

Of course, just because you’re working with professional artists it doesn’t mean you need any experience with the arts. Everyone is creative and capable of expressing themselves in their own way, and help and support will always be available when you want it. Before you know it you’ll unlock creative skills and become more confident in using them in your everyday life in positive ways.

If you would like to come along to Creative Directions or know someone who may benefit from the sessions you can just turn up at The Point on Thursdays, or email  or call 01302 341662 if you’d like more information.
