Emma Blackburn, Arts and Crafts Support Worker

I work with people in the Oakwood supported meals programme. Each week I bring some art and crafts supplies and a crazy idea of what we are going to make that day.  Some activities have been a great success while others were not repeated! I really enjoy working with the group as we all explore our creativity, have fun and decorate the room with some of our larger pieces of art. We have made a number of works exploring our own mental health struggles and focusing on inspirational quotes. Some of our pieces were on display to the public at Edgeley Library in 2018.
