A SERIES of workshops are to take place in Flintshire to offer creative skills to family carers of people living with dementia.

The Creative Conversations programme aims to offer the creative skills to family carers of people living with dementia using the arts. The facilitator delivers the workshops in ‘creative sessions’ of up to two hours long over four creative sessions delivered over 12 weeks.

The first workshop will take place at the Horse and Jockey Pub in Buckley on September 3 between 11am and 1pm.

The workshop aims to help carers within their role, to have meaningful and positive interactions with their loved one during difficult times.

It will also help to develop skills of carers using the arts, which includes poetry, visual art, film photography and music.

The scheme also encourages carers to use the skills developed in sessions in everyday interactions at home.

To book please email luke@newcis.org.uk or telephone 01352 752525.

Two programmes are available with limited spaces for the first on September 3, 17, October 22 and November 19.

A second programme will run on September 6, September 20, October 25 and November 19.

All workshops will run at the Horse and Jockey Pub, which can be found on Church Road, Buckley, CH7 3JQ.
