Walking impressions - pottery group
Free dementia friendly activity at Leach pottery St Ives
Sensory Trust and Leach Pottery are collaborating with people living with dementia in the St Ives area on a new innovative project. Walking Impressions is a creative project involving walking in the Cornish landscape and using nature as inspiration for a new ceramic artwork. In September this year, older people with dementia and their carers will meet for weekly walks and studio sessions that will culminate in a collaborative piece made from low relief tiles.
