Create.Connect.Unwind Festival – drop in embroidery workshop with Dab Hands

19 May 2022 at 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

Dab Hands is a collaborative art project with artist Lucy Burscough which explores hands and dexterity. Drop into the festival tent to meet the artist and try out some of the embroidery used in the project to create an anatomical sculpture of the human hand! Spend as little as 5 to 10 minutes having a go or stay a little longer.

Lucy Burscough's art projects have medical themes and are often delivered in clinical spaces with the intention of inspiring interesting and lively conversations.

As part of Creativity & Wellbeing Week 2022, Lime are hosting the inaugural Create.Connect.Unwind Festival celebrating creativity and wellbeing at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. The festival will feature an exciting 3-day programme of free creative workshops and performances especially for MFT staff including:
