We had a gentle day today. Sarah made a grasshopper and a pig's head in origami - her first ever attempts. Ed finished his tiger and Phil completed his version of Munch's scream. Toby worked on a pastel drawing of a cove where he'd been snorkelling. Puzul discovered a new pen and used it for detail of boats in a seascape. Owl began another dinosaur painting to make them into a diptych and he bought a book for us about den building.
Next week we will be visiting Tremenheere Sculpture gardens for a day with artist Belle Benfield who will be leading us in a workshop about medicinal herbs, pilgrimage and seed politics,
Happily, we've been able to meet a few times in September -- outdoors. Even when we couldn't meet, though, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. There are also paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Look under the "Film" tab above for three new videos!

Roaming's official goal is "to carry on creative activities that benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) people who find themselves in some way disadvantaged, excluded or vulnerable." Our values are really our common ground: confidentiality, integrity, fairness, respect for the values and culture of others, the withholding of judgement, inclusivity, flexibility, and equity in relationships. "
We are grateful to the newly-renamed National Lottery Community Fund for their recognition, generosity and encouragement. For information about the funding Roaming received before 2019, please see Support for Roaming.
