2-3 programmes are facilitated each year, consisting of a series of 4-5 workshops on a particular theme/topic, decided upon in consultation with the staff and patients.

These sessions involve handling relevant museum objects and using them for inspiration for an art/craft activity.

The activities are designed in conjunction with the Centre staff to make sure the various needs and abilities of the patients are taken into account, particularly the need to avoid or practice certain hand movements during the activities.

The work produced from the workshops is often then displayed at the Centre.
