Art Courses

Tandridge Trust has an established Arts and Culture department which over the past 11yrs has become recognised for providing excellent and inspiring arts opportunities for the local community and across the region. We work across all art forms, including dance, drama, craft, music, fine art, literature and other cultural areas such as heritage and countryside. All our activities are run by carefully selected arts professionals, who are DBS checked and offer a wealth of experience to participants.

This year we have introduced a series of one off workshops for adults, children and families. These will run on selected weekends throughout the year and include Clay Modelling, Painting, Drawing , Pottery and Printing, amongst other things.

The construction of the Vitamin G Community Art Garden

The Caterham Vitamin G Community Art Garden is part of a county wide initiative aimed at promoting independence and wellbeing for the older people in the district. The innovative project has created a new community art garden in the grounds of Queens Park, Caterham and further gardens across Surrey. The project aims to offer practical ways for residents to stay active and healthy, to learn new skills and to enjoy working and creating together in an inspirational and therapeutic way, whilst also incorporating the opportunity to learn.

Working in consultation throughout 2014, the local residents put forward their ideas and aspirations for the garden, and then garden designer Anita Smith of Anita Smith Designs, and woodwork artist Ruth Wheeler from Sculpt It, used these ideas to help design and create the finished garden. Working in conjunction with de Stafford School and Coombe Dingle Nursing Home, they took the community ideas and helped shaped them in to woodwork sculptures and clay pebbles to add to the final garden design.

With the help of volunteers from the local community, the Vitamin G Community Art Garden was completed in June. It was opened by Councillor Rose Thorn on 21 June 2015 at a celebratory garden party, where Caterham residents got to try there hand at woodwork sculptures, pebble painting and planting.

The project has worked across the generations, bringing together young and old throughout the process, and has created a therapeutic space for all to enjoy!
