A charity group who work with adults with learning disabilities and mental health conditions is celebrating a new creative studio.

Northern Butterflies have held their first open studio event at their new home in Cramlington.

The group who were previously based in community areas in Blyth, now have a permanent workspace in the Manor Walks Shopping Centre in Cramlington, for the first time since they were founded in May 2011.

Northern Butterflies founder, Samantha Goodlet, said: “We’ve worked in partnership with bait to support our members to take part in a wide range of arts experiences.

“The group had a fantastic time learning new skills.”
