Our marvellous Creative Arts Group

During the coronavirus situation our creative art sessions have moved onto Zoom and we are still being creative! Take a look at our News page and Coronavirus support page.

You don’t need any artistic skills, just a willingness to have a go and enjoy yourself. We use a variety different mediums such as felt, print, collage and painting. (It’s great way to build up your hand skills too). We love to try new things like Drama too. Just give it a try! Come along on Thursday mornings at Exeter Phoenix Centre, Gandy St, Exeter EX4 3LS.

Say without Words Exhibition

Our second art exhibition was a great success featuring our collaborative work, “Life Jacket”. It successfully portrays the hidden difficulties of aphasia in a single piece of work. We plan a tour of the jacket around Devon – it’s already been to a conference with the Stroke Association and is in Budleigh Well Being Hub now. Watch this space for more details about the Life Jacket!

Phoenix Exhibition

Our first art exhibition with Magic Carpet  was held in March 2019 at the Phoenix Art Centre. Our celebration event was opened with the marvellous local artist, Ray Balkwill.
