Supporters Spotlight – Talent Match South East


TMSE clay gems

Back in February 2016, we hosted a delivery partner meeting for Talent Match South East, an organisation supported by The Prince’s Trust, for young people in South East England.

We are one of the delivery partners supporting additional needs using arts & crafts.
When I found out the hub meeting was going to be here at INTRA we decided that the partners were all going to have a go at crafting with Fimo polymer clay.

It was lovely to see the adults so animated and excited, a big difference from the usual corporate business meetings.

Introduction to making cloth dolls by Jan Horrox

Article written by our lovely volunteer, Bernice.

cloth doll book“My mother bought me this book in 2012 and it inspired me to start making dolls and I haven’t looked back since.  I had recently had an operation and this craft really made me feel like I was putting myself back together again.  Since then I have gone on to design my own dolls – here is a picture of a doll that I created to look like me!”  You can find out more about Bernice’s work as a fine artist here

Supporter Spotlight – Nicola


This week we are talking to Nicola.  She started coming to Unravel about 9 months ago, really wanting to learn how to embroider like her Nan used to. She had a fantastic idea of recording her progress in an embroidery book so she could see how she was getting on.

All these months later, her book is almost full and she has even framed some of her favourite projects.  She loves coming every week and says that it makes her feel calm and happy being here.

We are absolutely delighted to see how far she has come with her craft.and look forward to seeing her every Thursday morning.
