  • Supporting the lead tutor with all delivery needs of the project
  • Supporting participants to participate to the best of their ability
  • Helping make the Craft Café a welcoming environment, making tea, coffee and light lunch duties
  • Contributing to photographic documentation of the project
  • Inspiring older people through the arts
