Learn to unleash your creativity

Worcestershire County Council's Arts Service is offering residents the chance to undertake eight weeks of art, dance and drama activities.

Called Chipp Shop (Culture and Heritage in Partnership with Personalisation), the project is particularly aimed at adults who access social care, including people with physical and learning difficulties and older people.

The two-hour sessions begin in Bromsgrove next month and similar sessions are being run in Kidderminster and Evesham.

People taking part also have the chance to meet others in a safe, fun setting whilst learning and taking part in this project.

The sessions, run by an arts professional, Emma Ford, take place weekly every Friday from March 6  to May 1 from 10.30am – 12.30pm at Amphlett Hall, Crown Close, Bromsgrove.

Cllr Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member for Localism and Communities, said: "We are committed to providing cultural opportunities for everyone in Worcestershire. These sessions will allow us to showcase a range of activities for everyone in the county especially those who are in receipt of social care budgets."

Each session costs £6 per person. There will be no session on Good Friday, April 3.
