I’m one of a group of artists leading the Brave Art arts course for people with learning disabilities run by Suffolk Artlink. The programme has been reimagined around lockdown and COVID-19 guidelines.
Early in 2020, I was due to lead imaginative costume and textiles workshops with the students, however during lockdown the face-to-face groups were led as a specially-designed resource book with supporting Zoom meetings.
For the second year of the Brave Art course, from September 2020, the group are exploring ‘Utopia’. For the resource book, I have put together two workshops ideas – a nature photography guide called ‘Looking at the world around us’ and a textile banner-making guide called ‘Manifesto for a better world’.
