‘Coming to the mosaic therapeutic support classes with Art4space has been a life line for me. I feel very blessed to have been given the opportunity to attend this for many years now and each week it feels like entering a little place in paradise for a couple of hours . The happy, bright, cheerful ,warm and welcoming surroundings and empathetic teachers are a world away from my usual lonely and dark days at home. There is even a tranquil garden and a cosy “me-time” lodge should you wish to have some peace and quiet or have a heart to heart chat with the kind , understanding staff who will try their utmost best to support with anything that might be troubling you. And in the midst of this wonderful atmosphere you can develop your creative and artistic skills and end up with artwork that you can feel proud of. This course allows you to engage in a rewarding activity, in a safe , super friendly and supportive environment. I could not wish for better!’
