Artytime’s mission is to bring arts and crafts to all ages and abilities.
They do this by offering art and craft sessions, workshops and events.
They also have a scrap store where local businesses donate waste materials we could reuse for art projects.
Artytime is a community group run by volunteers with a mission to bring arts and crafts to all ages and abilities.
Phase one is focused on children and their families.
Phase two will focus on the elderly and vunerable adults.

What are they looking for?
A volunteer to assist or lead an Artytime Young at Heart session. These sessions mix parents and their children (under 5) with the elderly for some meet and greet, play, story, craft and rhyme time.
Great communication skills and the ability to make people feel at ease no matter what the age.
Willing to learn and follow the program.
No creative skills are necessary but are a bonus.
All training is free and involves preparing the craft and story. The sessions run for 1 hour and 15 minutes. There will also be setting up and clear away time.
Need to be able to drive to the venue, as not all venues are on a bus route.
Use of a computer and printer are essential.
