The workshop and craft programme is an essential and integral part of the holistic treatment at Gloucester House. We recognise that creative activities can often provide a outlet for personal expression. In addition to this ‘therapeutic’ function, the workshop programme offers clients hands-on opportunities, improving life-skills, learning to plan and see projects through to completion, and restoring self worth.
In addition to the craft studio,workshop resources include: IT opportunities; allotment and IT training, dept support; gardening projects; Beginners DIY instruction/projects; pottery & kiln; Cooking and Budgeting life skills.
Clients engage in the workshop & craft programme three afternoons each week. Workshop facilities are available for client use at other times including weekends.
