Arts Workshops

Our programme of workshops has been established to appeal to the broadest possible range of hospital staff. We also warmly invite members of staff from the neighbouring organisations based on the Norwich Research Park to attend these workshops.

The workshops tend to be held either at lunchtime or directly after work as these are the most convenient and popular times. They last for up to one and a half hours depending on the type of workshop. All of our workshops operate on a non-profit making, 'pay as you go' basis.

Our programme of workshops is devised with the aim of improving the working day so that staff can relax, take a quality break and seize the opportunity to learn something new. Past workshops have included: Yoga, Indian Head Massage, Tai Chi, Dance, Singing, Drumming, Card Making, Drawing and Painting.

All our tutors are fully trained, have full certification and are accredited to various proffesional organisations.
