April is a time for Autism Awareness

To celebrate National Autism Awareness Month, we are excited to share a digital copy of our brand new coffee table book (below), made by participants of The Big WELCOME Cafe.

The group, set up by the Swadlincote Asperger Society (or SAS for short) and with support from People Express, have attended weekly art therapy workshops over the past year, working with professional artists to create work that they have compiled into this book.

The project was a year long programme of activities designed to provide a fun, supportive, creative environment for vulnerable adults living in South Derbyshire.

Hardcopies of the book are still available to purchase for £5 (all proceeds go back into the group) from the People Express building on the Sharpe’s Pottery Arts and Heritage Estate on West Street, Swadlincote.
