Exhibition of Soupercraft at The Larder

L’Arche Preston is a community that celebrates people with learning disabilities and builds circles of support around them. For us, the emotional, spiritual and creative lives of our core members and the wider community is really important.

One way in which we explore this is through Soupercraft, a weekly creative workshop that takes place on a Thursday Morning between 10-1pm at the Fulwood Methodist church centre (Crossroads Centre) on Watling Street Rd in Fulwood.

At Soupercraft, we take part in a range of creative activities, from arts and crafts, to parties and performance and we always finish with a delicious lunch prepared by our assistants. It is a lovely opportunity for like-minded creatives both with and without the label of learning disability to get together and celebrate all things creative. There is a small cost to take part and have food.

We are currently holding a six-week exhibition at the Larder cafe, on Lancaster Rd in Preston near the market and just opposite the Town Hall. We would love for people to call in and see our creations, which includes pieces created by our resident artists Becky Atherton and Eli Mansfield.

The Larder is open daily between 9am and 3pm, and offers delicious and reasonably priced refreshments.

We are also hosting a celebration event on Saturday 17th June between 2.30-4pm, which will be attended by the Mayor of Preston. This will be a chance to take in the artwork and indulge in some light refreshments. You can also meet our artists and find out more about Soupercraft and L’Arche.
