Summer Colour, Craft & Chat Club

Join staff and students of NCW for a relaxing, informal and fun craft session aimed at children with a vision impairment aged 10 to teens! 

Each week will have  theme so you can come prepared, or otherwise simply grab some colouring or some Lego and join us for a chat.

There will be a colouring in theme to complete on paper or digitally and a small and simple make, using the good old loo roll and/or coloured paper.

The club will be held on video conferencing platform Google Meet – simply click on the link that we email through to you.
