Mosaic Art Workshop Brings People Together

Over the coming weeks Enrych will be launching a wide range of activities to improve general and mental health and wellbeing amongst vulnerable adults in the community.

The activities will range from sports and fitness groups to support groups as well as other activities including arts and crafts, music and nature therapy.

This week saw a Mosaic Art Workshop held at Scotlands Park Bowls Club un Coalville which was attended by a range of adults living with different disabilities.

Llynda Baugh, a local Mosaic Artist, who ran the session said "I have created several mosaics which can be seen locally in Ashby & Hugglescote and I never tire of getting people together who want to learn about mosaic art" Llynda went on "Mosaic art is very therapeutic and the good thing is it can be whatever you want it to be using a range of colours and shapes".

Enrych wanted to support the local bowls club after they recently opened after being refurbished. Bev Cowley, Head of Community Development said "The Bowls Club is a lovely place to meet, the surroundings are beautiful and very peaceful," Bev added "At Enrych we are keen to get people to try new things and get together regularly, their are some new friendships being formed and this is always wonderful to see".

The art workshop was funded by the NHS Charities Together funding which was awarded to Enrych in July to help reduce social isolation after the lockdowns. Bev added "People have spent so many months at home, we want to do our bit getting people back out in the community enjoying meeting people and enjoying a full and active life again".

The workshop was attended by members of the local community, PAs and those benefitting from the Enrych PA Support Service. Tracey, one of the PA's who supported a gentleman with dementia said "It was great to see him taking part and enjoying being with other people, he really enjoyed making his coffee coaster".

Enrych will be working with Llynda again to produce a larger mosaic which will be placed in the local Community Hospital in Coalville. This art piece will be funded by Cadeby Homes who chose Enrych as their corporate charity in June after deciding they wanted to give something back to their local community and felt that Enrych would make the perfect partner.
