Art allows people to express themselves creatively. It is relaxing and rewarding. We help to inspire imagination and enhance the technical ability of the people we support at the bright and welcoming Jonathan Burns Centre.  Our activities include:


With our support, clients in our animation group devise themes, characters and stories.for mini animation films – and then they shoot them! The animators are involved in the whole process from story boarding to photography and editing to online publishing. If you’re interested in art, technology and social media, this could be perfect for you! Music and sound effects can be added to enhance stories and once online they can be seen by  family and friends. Get creative with Pure Animation. No experience is necessary and there is an emphasis on team work and confidence building

Art, Crafts and Textiles

Get imaginative with our brilliant arts, crafts and textile projects. Here we make lovely items including tie-dye bags with personalised designs, cushions, cards, models, decorations and much more. Many of the creative designs go on sale to the public to showcase and raise awareness of the group’s skills. It gives a great sense of  achievement when people buy the lovely things the group creates.
