A group of adult learners with additional needs have been rewarded for producing individual and group collages, as part of a course provided by the Workers Educational Association.

The 11 week course, held at the Citadel Arts Centre, saw the group from the St Helens Day Opportunities service -which supports adults with disabilities to maximise their potential for independent living - look at the element of design and have fun with basic shapes and texture with tutor, Barbara Anders.

Each participant received a certificate for their efforts which included producing a piece of art using tissue paper and other materials to create their very own version of the Flying Scotsman steam train.

“I enjoyed the topics and everyone working together and getting on,” said one service user.
