Hello First name / Friend,,
Today we're back with 'The Men's Table'! A men's group who participate in programmes at The Long Table, in Stroud, Gloucestershire. The group is a joint project with the NHS and The Long Table for men’s health. 
“The Long Table is a community canteen where we strive to answer the question 'what if everyone in our community had access to great food and people to eat it with?' Food is always available Pay As You Can so it doesn't matter if you have lost your job or your wallet there is space at our table for you.”

Join Patrick Graham, a member of the Mens's group at The Long Table for a creative conversation on 26th January, 1pm - 1.30pm, online via Zoom. We’ll be talking about everyday creativity and The Men’s Table’s challenges. It's FREE to join and there will be a BSL interpreter and a live captioner present for the session.

Pictured below is The Men's Table taking part in a creative workshop, designing the challenge you'll find today…

“At The Long Table the most rewarding thing is to 'just do' so if you are unsure - jump in!”

Create a 4 inch (roughly!) square of paper. Layer scraps of material or different types of paper to create a collage. 
Fix your collage in place or keep it movable by simply layering the materials. If you have more time, choose materials that remind you, in some way, of your culture or traditions.
Welsh Translation: 
Torra sgwâr o bapur o oddeutu pedair modfedd. Gosod ddarnau gwahanol o bapur neu ddefnydd mewn haenau arno i greu collage.
Gliwiau'r darnau yn eu lle neu newid y collage yn barhaus drwy jest symud y darnau. Os oes gennyt fwy o amser, dewis ddefnyddiau sy'n dy atgoffa mewn rhyw ffordd o'th ddiwylliant neu dy draddodiadau.

How would the way you layer the materials change if you made the collage 2 inches smaller or 2 inches bigger?
