We’re working with the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to provide high quality, free, art taster sessions for people living with dementia and their carers. Stepping into Nature is funded by the Big Lottery. It started in Beaminster and Lyme Regis last autumn and the next sessions will take place in Dorchester and Weymouth this October.

If you’d like to try something new, meet friendly people and have fun, then come and join one of our art taster sessions – no previous arts experience needed!  We are offering:

  • singing
  • music
  • dance
  • creating large scale drawings
  • ceramics
  • fiction writing
  • book binding

Dementia-friendly art taster sessions

All the sessions are led by local artists with great reputations who have had dementia-friendly training.  Public Health Dorset is evaluating the project as part of research into how the arts can improve wellbeing.
