In 2016 The Beaney ran textile and mixed-media artist-led workshops with blind and partially sighted people creating work inspired by the buildings and collections at Canterbury Cathedral and The Beaney, culminating in an exhibition Sensing Culture – The Mark of the Maker in The Beaney Front Room Gallery.
A massive thank you to everyone who supported the artists and the exhibition which opened at the weekend. Make sure you drop in before it closes on Sunday 29 January – it is not one to miss!
The free monthly creative workshops will continue – new members welcome (check our website or contact Wendy on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07989 264768)
Already many people and groups, aged 9 to 90, have been involved in the project, including schools in Canterbury, Dover, Reculver and Thanet, as well as Kent Association for the Blind, the Macular Support Group and Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and many volunteers.
To find out more about the project and participants, please watch the film below.
