Blind Veterans UK members create a mural for the Brighton centre

Members from the Blind Veterans UK Brighton centre have been getting crafty recently since attending the workshop within the centre.

The team of blind veterans have created a stunning mural which is taking pride of place in the reception of our Ovingdean centre. The mural is a mixed media piece of art which takes you on a journey along the South East coast line. Along the way you pass the sights of Ovingdean, Rottingdean and Peacehaven, with each image representing a 'stop' along the way.

The ingenious design means you can even choose to hop on the bus at the bottom of the artwork and slide along to the place you would like to visit! The mural was a team effort and the results speak for themselves, it looks stunning! It is a wonderful example of the range of techniques learnt and media used by the members of Blind Veterans UK that attend the arts and crafts workshop at our Brighton centre.
