Craft Scotland and National Museum of Rural Life are looking for a maker to deliver workshops for older vulnerable adults at the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire.
We are looking for a maker to deliver four half-day workshops for older vulnerable adults on site at the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire. This series of workshops will take place during January and February. They will allow targeted audiences to meet and work closely with a maker to produce their own bespoke or group piece.
We will specifically target older adults, which may include those living with dementia, mental health or additional support needs. We anticipate that they will each bring a carer with them to the workshop so that the total number of people in each workshop will be approximately 16 people. Where possible we would like the same participants to attend each workshop.
The National Museums Scotland Community Engagement team will provide full support for the project including developing the workshop content, operational elements of delivery including site visits, purchasing materials and workshop delivery support.
The project would culminate in February/March with a public event to celebrate the work the group have been doing and further promote and share contemporary craft practice. This will coincide with the National Museum of Rural Life’s Willow Harvest event on Sunday 4 February 2018 and February half-term holiday activities.
