a chance for unpaid carers to speak out
Thanks to funding from Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council we were able to offer free printmaking courses earlier in 2019, to thirty members of the Suffolk Family Carers charity, to create artwork for the Who Cares? Exhibition. Over nine weeks of intensive teaching, participants learnt how to express themselves creatively and master the art of printmaking at half day workshops in our studio.
The exhibition highlighted the fantastic work so many people do as unpaid carers in our society and was up in the Whistler Gallery in Ipswich until 14th June. The response to the exhibition was very positive with things like this being written in our comments book
" I enjoyed the opening so much I realised I needed to come back and view all the work again in more detail. Absolutely amazing!"
