Join in and get creative with our welcoming and accessible Creative Age workshops. 

Creative Age is a dementia-friendly creative programme from Equal Arts, offering older people living with dementia, their families and carers, and those with long-term health conditions the opportunity to take part in lively and supportive creative sessions led by artists. 

At the Hatton we will explore artworks and exhibitions, get creative with traditional and more unusual art materials.

January and February sessions

Mani Kambo’s workshops will invoke stories inspired by the Hatton’s historical function as a medical facility during WW1. Mani will draw upon subjects from the Hatton’s exhibitions and collections,  exploring through (un)common rituals, text and language the ways in which myth can manifest or ‘inhabit’ objects or places.

Hatton Gallery is fully accessible for wheelchair users. If you have any specific access requirements please contact Zoe Allen, or 0191 277 8877.
