Younger People with Dementia

Younger People with Dementia (YPwD) Pottery

We offer workshops every Friday between 10.30am – 12.00pm in a professional ceramic studio in central Cambridge. Do get in touch if you or someone you know might be interested.

Our Younger People with Dementia programme provides a safe and therapeutic environment for participants with a dementia diagnosis early in life.

Sessions allow attendees to show ability and enjoy success within a safe and social setting, experience handling clay and being guided and supported to make objects which will then be glazed and professionally fired.

It is well documented that such activity relaxes people with dementia, who will invariably leave the session calmer and more engaged than when they arrived.
