Inspired by Archives Our Inspired by Archives group has been running on the first Monday of each month since October 2017, and is going from strength to strength. Each month we look at some aspect of the History Centre’s collections and make a creative response. We have had the privilege of working with a number of talented artists, including Sarah Hough and Jo Amey who shared watercolour and tile making skills with us in response to Poole Pottery designs. We've also produced creative writing, photography and hand-made books. The group is small and welcoming, and open to anybody wio would enjoy the stimulation and company including carers or those affected by dementia, sensory disabilities or health challenges. Participants have told us that they have found the sessions ‘interesting and creative’, ‘surprisingly relaxing’, ‘a chance to learn a new skill’ and ‘an opportunity to socialise’. The group’s success means that we will run sessions twice a month from September, and we welcome new participants. You are vey welcome to come along and try out the group, for which there is only a £1 charge for coffee!
The sessions are part of the Stepping Into Nature project, which is managed by
the A.O.N.B. and aims to connect people with ou r  beautiful Dorset landscapes
and to each other. To have a chat about the sessions at DHC or to book a place
please either call or email our Community Engagement Officer. Maria Gayton on 01305 228947 or
