Please note that this is not an Autism Centre event
A polite reminder that Access Space’s digital creativity workshops for people with autistic spectrum disorders begins on Friday. There are two spare places left if you wish to book. The workshops are FREE. They will be with a small, supportive group. The workshops are fortnightly, on Fridays, from 11am-1pm.
The dates are:- 4 Nov 2016 18 Nov 2016 2 Dec 2016 16 Dec 2016 6 Jan 2017.
The workshops will start with talking about designing, then lead on to use of laser cutting (with careful support) to make things in paper, wood or plastic. Everyone will have different levels of ability, but we will make sure all get some enjoyment and create something, in a very gentle and supportive atmosphere. They will be run by people experienced in both this type of work and with people with ASD. They are based on Access Space previous activities, and the fact that many people with autism and learning disabilities can excel in creative thinking – see: http://access-space.us2.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=fcc7f50bea5d32d95b8efe802&id=cc6ef651f7&e=8b632cc03f
It will be best if participants can attend all sessions, but of course we accept that this may not be possible for everyone. Please note that it will be necessary for participants to have some experience with computers. This does not have to be high level, but at least basic familiarity with keyboard/mouse. We look forward to hearing from you if you or anyone you know may be interested.
