Touch To See

Monday 10th Jul 2017 — Monday 12th Mar 2018, West Berkshire Museum

(FREE)

Next sessions:  Mon 11 Dec, Mon 8 Jan, Mon 12 Feb, Mon 12 Mar

We host a monthly get-together for blind and visually impaired residents of West Berkshire.

Our Touch To See group meets on the second Monday of every month from 10.30am – 12pm at the West Berkshire Museum. The group has access to tactile and audio resources from the Living Paintings library enabling them to explore the work of famous artists, architects and designers, before hearing a guest speaker talk about a related subject.

We also invite local artists to share their work and we've been very lucky to have some great local speakers in recently, including Simon Vowell of Vallis Green Woodworking, Newbury Embroiderer's Guild, ceramicist Ursula Waechter and most recently Silk Artist, Helen Mortimer. 

'I find it a very friendly group, we have some laughs and lots of fun! The interest we’ve had from the artists have been really good; they've been really willing to introduce their work to those unable to see – at first it doesn’t seem that art can be accessible to visually impaired people but it really can be!'
