Get involved this World Mental Health Day
Tuesday 10th October
This year, to mark World Mental Health Day, the Recovery College is hosting a large scale open art workshop, aiming to create two unique banners and hundreds of decorations to transform the college and surrounding area.We’re asking everyone to roll their sleeves up and help us create two colourful banners to add to the outside of our building here at Springfield. There will be plenty of art supplies on hand and volunteers and staff from the college for support and guidance.
We’ll also be creating hundreds of hand-made butterflies to decorate the trees and shrubs around our building (keep your eyes peeled for these butterflies during the rest of WMH Month, as you never know where they may land!)
Everybody’s welcome, no matter their artistic talent. We’ll be providing templates for those who need a bit of inspiration but if you’re feeling creative then just go for it!
Meet our guest artist
The college is commissioning a piece of artwork and we’d love your input.
The finished piece will be designed and produced by Farnoush Amini, a London based artist currently studying at The Art Academy. Farnoush will be with us on the day, showcasing some of her previous work and will be looking to chat to people about their ideas for what would make a good commissioned piece for the college.
You can find out more about Farnoush on her website: http://www.farnoushaminiart.com/
