Refugee integration

What we do

Through art and conversation, participants are encouraged to express and share stories, develop language skills, create friendships and make positive connections between the past and hopes for the future.

Working with a range of art materials, the group is guided in telling stories and expressing emotions through drawing, painting and text. Participants enjoy expanding their expressive language and creating some lovely artwork to take away.

Who for

Groups of up to 25 adults


Either I come to you wherever you are, or if you’re local, make the most of an enhanced learning environment at my studio in rural Northumberland.
