Project Ability has received funding from the Scottish Government to invite people with learning disabilities, the length and breadth of Scotland, to take part in a programme of visual art workshops!


An arts team from Project Ability, a professional artist and a leading learning disability artist, will come to a venue of your choosing; it can be your centre, club or home and deliver a visual arts workshop individually tailored to meet your needs.  The workshop will last between 1 ½ and 2 hours.


Taking part is good for you! Learn new skills, meet new people and be part of a Scotland-wide creative programme.


You can choose from two workshops:


1. Handmade books – using a variety of techniques which could include stitching, binding, marbling at the end of the workshop you will have made a beautiful book
2. Textiles – we can deliver a wide range of workshops including fabric printing, cushions, wall hangings, bags.


We will bring the materials and deliver a workshop for up to 6 people. The work is yours to keep. We will photograph it and post it on the online project blog. Over the next twelve months the blog will record and map the creative achievements of Scotland’s learning disability community.
