The group was established by Aimee Colville to fill a gap in low-cost art classes in Prestatyn in North Wales. The group’s aim is to bring people together; share ideas and techniques; socialise; make arts and crafts; have fun and enhance participants’ lives through art.

Since its inception the group has grown to over 45 active members, roughly a third of whom have been referred by GPs or Occupational Therapists.

Taking an imaginative approach to creativity, the group offers a wide range of visual arts and crafts activities.

An NHS Occupational Therapist said, “We often don’t see people again who have started attending: this is perhaps the best feedback there is.”
