Come and try your hand at a range of traditional arts and craft skills from woodblock carving, sculpture, printing, watercolour painting and many more. Each term we will focus on a different technique with an artist who will introduce and guide us through the processes. The sessions are tasters which can be dipped in and out of and we welcome all skill levels.

A community planning meeting open to all residents aged 50+.
Lone Star Dining is an approach that provides older people with a list of pubs, cafes, social clubs and restaurants in the Wythenshawe and surrounding area. Places that will give an older person a warm and friendly welcome if they enter to dine alone. The main focus of a social eating scheme is about the older person having a choice of where they eat, when they eat and extending their network of friends and social eating spaces. This is a 12 month pilot sponsored by Heineken Manchester of which older people will be designing, testing, evaluating, preparing and delivering a final report about the pilot scheme. Participants will be visiting local cafes, social clubs, pubs and restaurants to generate interest from the business, taking part in secret shopping expeditions and helping to evaluate the pilot with and independent agency.
Make new friends and have fun - no experience needed!
