We are delighted to introduce you to our ONE FOR ONE Campaign.
Our pledge is to run a FREE ART WORKSHOP or a course of workshops in return for our 'Boutique Art Workshops' Selling out. Simply, this means that for every high end workshop that we run in The Art Retreat, we promise to run another in a community setting, absolutely free.
In our Autumn/Winter Brochure you will clearly see which of our workshops are part of this campaign. Our Boutique Art Workshops are events that include home-made cakes, lunch, delicious refreshments, all art materials and a pack to take home.
Our first ONE FOR ONE workshops are being held on The Lavenham Ward, Ipswich NHS Hospital. We are proud to be running SIX SESSIONS on the ward, encouraging patients to get out of bed to come and join us. Lavenham Ward has 40 beds and is a busy surgical ward for those either waiting for or recovering from surgery.
Our mission for ONE FOR ONE in Ipswich Hospital is to reduce social isolation, introduce a new hobby, get people doing something creative together, reduce boredom on the hospital ward, and simply to get poorly people out of bed and participating in something fun.
