Flying the Nest at Rosehill Summer School 2014 (Autism East Midlands)

This is the third summer we have delivered creative workshops as part of the Nottingham Regional Society for Adults and Children with Autism East Midlands’ Summer School service held at Rosehill School, as part of our on-going Community engagement programme. NORSACA are a leading autism charity who strive to ensure that people with autism can live their lives with dignity, choice and independence. HandMade Theatre work with Autism East Midlands as part of their Play and Leisure Service, giving children and young people the opportunity to access some great activities. These activities take place during most school holidays as well as occasional half terms, weekends and after school. The service is supported through funding from Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham City Council’s Flexible Support developments.

This year HandMade launched our first series of workshops at Rosehill Summer School as part of our Flying The Nest project, all inspired by birds. We blended a dynamic mix of practical activities including songs, nature walks, puppet making, story telling and nest building, providing accessible physical and creative engagement with the birds and their natural habitat.
