Thanks to sponsorship from Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme and WCVA, National Lottery Awards 4 All and Postcode Community Trust we have delivered stone carving workshops at Clywedog Creative Hub.
This course is for Armed Forces Veterans, some of whom are referred to us by Change Step and Veterans' NHS Wales to support veterans in Wales. Radiate Arts are working in partnership with Armed Forces Organisations to provide creative and expressive courses and workshops, building on their vital support services which tackle serious stress and related issues. We use the physical activity of stone carving to promote mental wellbeing in an environment that is safe and relaxing. Attending a Stone Carving workshop enables people to discover and learn new creative skills and techniques that have been used for thousands of years. Set within beautiful and inspirational surroundings, in the open air if the weather permits, it brings people closer to nature for an enjoyable experience – one where most surprise themselves at what they can produce.
This workshop is perfect for re-connecting with a fundamental creativity within all of us, whether we are actively creative in our everyday life or not.
