HoW College Students Create Art from the Heart!
08 July 2019
Heart of Worcestershire College’s (HoW College) Community and Adult Skills students, have donated ‘Arthur’ the Peacock to this year’s online Worcester Snoezelen Art Auction.
Worcester Snoezelen is an independent charity specifically set up to offer multi-sensory and creative activities for people who have a diverse range of needs. The centre itself was founded by Penny Brazier in 1993 and now comprises of four multi-sensory rooms, hydrotherapy pool, soft play area, music and arts.
The Snoezey Art Auction is an annual exhibition of artwork from members, staff & professional artists. Individuals can 'silently' place a bid on pieces through the charities Facebook page for a chance to win, with all proceeds being donated to Worcester Snoezelen artists who have disabilities and additional needs.
This year, as part of the Summer Crafts course, HoW College’s Community and Adults Skills students created a vibrant peacock, Arthur, who has now been donated to the auction.
Talking about the project, Community and Adult Skills Tutor, Margaret Ledgerwood said:
“The students have worked really hard on the project and Arthur the peacock is the result of many hours of skilful design and careful needlecraft.”
The students work, alongside other artwork, will be displayed at the Snoezey Gallery until Monday 15th July.
