There’s lots of interesting events ahead for carers to bring winter cheer in the chilly climes.
All you need to do is to call Ruth on 020 7501 8974 at Lambeth Carers Hub if you plan to come to any event below (apart from the advice drop-in, where no booking is necessary). This is so they can cater for the right number of people and send text reminders on the day.
What’s on offer?

Art Therapy Open Studio – The Carers Hub is now able to offer members an Art Therapy Open Studio, every Friday from 10.30-12.00 beginning 4 December in the fully accessible ground floor gallery space at SHARP, 312 Brixton Rd, London SW9 6AA.
The Art Therapy Open Studio is:
● A space to be creative and experiment
● a time for yourself
● a space to socialise with others who care for someone
● a safe space to share feelings and experiences around caring
The Art Therapy Open Studio is a supportive space to explore your creativity . You can use it as a time for yourself, or to meet and talk to others, or as a safe space to share feelings and experiences. You do not need to have any prior familiarity with art. There will be a range of art materials in the room including paints, pastels, pencils and collage and you will be helped and encouraged to experiment and see what happens.
The Open Studio is a confidential space and will be facilitated by Oliver Campbell who is a qualified and registered Art Therapist. The focus of the group will be on creativity and unlike a closed art therapy group you are free to attend when you wish.
