Creative Age

Creative Age is a free, weekly art group for people living with dementia or other long-term health challenges and their carers.

We meet every Wednesday, 2pm – 4pm, for a friendly, creative workshop. Participants can explore the museum collections and exhibitions, and draw upon this inspiration to create their own artwork. The group works across different art forms including drawing, painting, printmaking, clay sculpture, paper art, jewellery making and more.

We focus on having fun, trying new things and exploring all forms of creativity.

All art materials are provided. We also have free tea, coffee and biscuits to help keep the creative juices flowing.

Get involved

Places are limited, so if you are interested in joining the group, please email Charlotte at the Oriental Museum or telephone +44 (0)191 334 5694.

These sessions are suitable for people living with mild to moderate dementia or other long-term health challenges who are accompanied by a carer or family member.

The Oriental Museum is fully accessible and has free on-site parking.
