They all weave hand looms and sew in the building and create t-shirts, small change purses, hand bags, scarves, and a variety of other arts and crafts. People with disabilities helping to support themselves as they get no government funding. Their... More

We stayed nearby so popped in here. Welcomed very warmly and met the weavers and artists who were so polite. They make some beautiful items- each unique so worth a visit.

We were staying nearby so decided to go in and see, amazing place! We had a very warm welcome and a nice gentleman there told us the story of the centre and what they do there. They have some lovely crafts on sale, which have been made by the children. It is truly an inspiring place to visit.

Definitely worth visiting and supporting, especially since it means so much to them. Very warm and welcoming people, and some nice little handmade and woven bags, purses and other things they produce which we took home for gifts. Nice area to wander too with lots of cafes and arts/crafts places nearby.

We were staying nearby and strolling around the area, when we spotted the signs outside and went to have a look. So glad we did! This is a wonderful place - set up to provide a work environment for people with disabilities. Handlooms are used to weave pieces of beautifully coloured fabric, which are made into t-shirts, bags, scarves and... More

We enjoyed the visit to the Healing Family Foundation. Everyone there is friendly and happy. It is nice to see them in a lovely community weaving and interacting with each other and contributing. The foundation president greeted us when we visited. He introduced us to the members and told us a little about them. His son is a weaver. The... More
