Recollection will provide an opportunity for participants and their carers to spend time together enjoying museum collections as a focus for inspiration to explore, develop and express creative skills. The session aims to be relaxing and enjoyable with afternoon tea plus art and craft activities on offer.(No experience necessary).

One carer stated:

“It’s re-introduced him to his love of art” and “It’s great to realise that you’re not alone”.
