Spinning Wheel is a multi-sensory project for adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities. We explore drama, movement, sound, music, and use all of our senses to develop our own stories.
We run weekly term-time workshops on Mondays at Chats Palace in Hackney, as well as going directly into care homes to deliver workshops to residents.
Using our unique methodology in music and movement, we focus on enjoyment, engagement and each individual’s creativity.
