Beds Garden Carers music and drama
This is a place that people can be creative and express their individuality and increase their confidence whilst developing skills.
We do lots of drama at Beds Garden Carers this may be making up our own plays or acting out stories we already know. When acting we look at props needed, we may need to be creative and make some of these ourselves.
Within the singing time we have general sing along times and also we learn and practice specific songs. These songs are chosen by the group and run over a few weeks so that the group is able to learn and remember the words.
Included in the music part of the work we do is dance and use of musical instrument’s. We have a wide range of instruments that we use to create our own music.
Most of the work we do with in the drama and music team is group work. We mix the groups up so every one gets a chance to work with different people and learn new things.

Arts and Craft
The arts and crafts session offers a place for all people to express themselves freely in one form or another. There is something for everyone and every level of ability can easily be catered for.
The group can work on individual craft projects, with a friend or as a group, this is all dependant on what they want to do.
Our Halloween poster
A lot of the ideas come directly from the group, some of the crafts that we have done recently include
Sewing. Glass painting. Painting. Working with clay. Pottery painting. Collage. Paper Mache. Drawing. T-shirt making. Jewellery making. Seasonal work such as Christmas cards, gift tags, decorations, snow globes etc. Written stories and then picking the pictures to go with the stories, these were then bound.
A good arts or crafts session is always marked by the amount of mess we have made, a messy session is always fun.
All of the art work within the building has been created by project members as BGC and is something that we are all very proud, in fact BGC is becoming a bit like an art gallery!
We are having a potters wheel and kiln soon, which will add endless possibilities, and even more opportunity to get even more messy!!!
