Workshop with Lego!

Whoever would have thought that Lego could be used so creatively! One of our wonderful artist from Magic Carpet is holding a one off creative session for Living with Aphasia on Thursday 23rd May. We’ll be thinking about how our environment and city might look – what would our ideal future look like? How could we make a world that is good for people with aphasia! Sounds like a great idea!

Creative Art Exhibition

art fun aphasia

We are so excited about our first art exhibition at the Phoenix Centre Walkway Gallery.

Since starting our sessions people have produced amazing works and rediscovered their confidence in their creative skills.

A renowned local artist, Ray Balkwill, opened our exhibition on Thursday 14th March and it was wonderful to see all our achievements. Take a look at what went on at the exhibition opening. The gallery will be on show for a month from 12th March to the 14th April 2019.

We hope to inspire and encourage other people with aphasia. Come along to our next Creative Art sessions!

Aphasia Art fun and creative experts!

Our first block of art sessions has been great fun!art fun aphasia

The sessions were led by Stuart from Magic Carpet. We produced some fantastic collage work over the four weeks. The collage started with simple design and over the weeks became more complex. People have amazed themselves in their creative abilities! It has been a great opportunity for quiet contemplation and expression of ideas and thoughts in artistic ways. We are looking forward to our next block of Aphasia Art!

People with communication difficulties can express themselves through visual media whilst building up creative skills too.

Living with Aphasia has teamed up with Magic Carpet to bring art sessions to add to our activities.
