Touch to See
Priority booking opens to Members on Tuesday 8 December. Tickets are available for general sale on Tuesday 15 December at 10am.
A monthly get-together for blind and visually impaired residents of West Berkshire.
Our Touch To See group meets once a month from 10.30am to 11.45am at the The Base, Greenham. The group has access to tactile and audio resources from the Living Paintings library enabling them to explore the work of famous artists, architects and designers, before hearing a guest speaker talk about a related subject.
We also invite local artists to share their work and we've been very lucky to have some great local speakers in recently, including Simon Vowell of Vallis Green Woodworking, Newbury Embroiderer's Guild, ceramicist Ursula Waechter and Silk Artist, Helen Mortimer.
'I find it a very friendly group, we have some laughs and lots of fun! The interest we’ve had from the artists have been really good; they've been really willing to introduce their work to those unable to see – at first it doesn’t seem that art can be accessible to visually impaired people but it really can be!'
