Portugal Prints

Portugal Prints, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind's creative arts recovery project, offers a friendly and supportive programme of workshops including:

  • Art classes
  • Art therapy
  • Computer design skills
  • Hot-foil printing
  • Gallery visits and workshops
  • Photography
  • Commercial design
  • Work experience

Individual and flexible programmes combine creative and
commercial work along with coaching, mentoring and volunteering opportunities. The project also runs a card making business and you can get involved in anything from designing and printing the cards to packing, marketing and
selling them.

PP regularly teams up with Tate, Westminster Adult Education Service and the Royal Academy of Arts for joint workshops. We also have a wide activity programme that includes gallery visits, coastal trips and picnics in the park. We hold two art exhibitions each year and run a thriving commercial design service.

We work closely with Wandsworth and Westminster Mind’s Support for Volunteering Service, and many people who take part in our arts project go on to further education, volunteering or paid work.
