Description

From our beginnings in 1915, Blind Veterans UK taught core arts and crafts subjects to give our veterans a purpose and in many cases the ability to earn their own income.  Today at our centres the number of disciplines covered by our rehabilitation team continues to grow.  All subjects are taught using a bespoke approach - each veteran's experience of sight loss is different.  This open day will give you an opportunity to view the range of art work produced and learn more about the techniques applied.

This will be the second year that Blind Veterans UK’s Llandudno Centre will take part in the Helfa Gelf Art Trail.

Since 1915 Blind Veterans UK has considered the study of art and craft skills to be an important element of rehabilitation for our Blind Veterans.  Visitors to our studio will be given the opportunity meet with members of our team to discuss how the barriers often created by sight loss can be overcome in order to allow those with visual impairments to participate in a number of disciplines while viewing a range of art work produced by our blind veterans including paintings, wood work, photography and mixed media projects.  Visitors will also learn more about how arts and crafts can contribute to enabling veterans to build confidence, self-belief and independence via the sharing of some of our veteran’s stories.

Many pieces of work will be available to purchase.

Refreshments will be available.
