Join VICTA to immerse yourself in nature to complete an Arts Award Discover at Magdalen Farm. Magdalen is a 132-acre organic working farm on the banks of the River Axe. You will be supported by the artists at Magdalen Farm to create natural art work. This includes dreamcatchers, woodland medallions, clay creatures, wet felting or twig frames, all inspired by our trip to the beach during day 2.
This is a great opportunity to meet other young people of a similar age group. You will all get stuck into farm life together – helping out on the farm, holding chickens and collecting eggs. Whilst also enjoying some fun team building and problem-solving activities.
- Start or develop your journey of personal development, independence and skill growth
- Develop art skills to gain an Arts Award Discover – an introductory award
- Develop new and existing skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving
- Increase your mobility and independence skills
- Gain all of this while having a fun weekend in a supportive, encouraging environment
