Artist Andy Evans led a bespoke joint session with Gemma Gottelier at Victoria Park Ashford for the Ashford Young Carers group. Fourteen young carers attended (a mix of boys and girls) aged between 8-13 years old.

Andy and Gemma offered a relaxed free flow morning between the two workshops: one activity based on working in small scale (Eco Accessories) and the other in large (Sand Drawing).

None of the participants knew each other beforehand but it didn’t take long before everyone settled in, getting to know each other, dropping inhibitions and working really creatively together.

“We had a lovely day, thank you! The young carers really enjoyed themselves and all got stuck in with both activities (sand art and keyring making). It was great to see them all get stuck in and show their creativity.” Group leader

This workshop was funded by the Kent Community Foundation Frank Brake Fund & supported by the Victoria Park Project.
