Ned Jackson Smyth, Artist and Art Tutor at our New Horizons Service in Bangor, has been working with a group of individuals living with mental health issues on a new bronze casting project.
The group explored the idea of “Healing” and developed their concepts through carving and drawing what represented healing to each individual.

Working at the foundry offered a completely new experience for all raising self-esteem as each person witnessed their own casts coming to fruition!
