Brilliant Resilience

Hello! If you wish to take part in further FREE Fermanagh-based workshops exploring photography, storytelling or crochet workshops please sign up to the Brilliant Resilience project below or if you have any queries, send an email to

Brilliant Resilience

If you live in Fermanagh and are over 60, or a carer or a family member of a participant who is over 60, we would love to hear from you. Between April and October, we have friendly tutors who will work with you to develop new skills, connect with others and have some fun. Our hope is to tell the story of this unique period in our lives. At the end of the project, we will produce a calendar, coffee table book and a small exhibition of what life was like during lockdown and Covid. There is no cost to participate as we really would like to have you along. If you do participate in the programme for at least ten hours, you’ll receive a free calendar that the group has created. If you participate in the programme for at least twenty hours, you’ll receive the calendar and coffee table book for free. Of course, you’ll be invited to the party for the exhibition!

If you have any questions, or wish to receive a paper registration form, please contact Josh at 02890 923493 or email Keep an eye on Brilliant Resilience for updates!

This project has been supported by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland through the Community Arts, Culture & Heritage Fund, Department for Communities.

Free Crochet/ knitting workshops in Newtownbutler, Belleek and Enniskillen:

As soon as government regulations allow and our local facilities begin to open again we invite you to a free knitting or crochet workshop at the following locations:

  • Newtownbutler Community Centre
  • Wark Hall in Belleek
  • West End Community Centre in Enniskillen

Free doorstep portraits: (April – June)

Would you like a professional photo portrait taken of you or your family from a safe social distance, either at your doorstep or garden? If so, you will receive a copy of your photo in a handmade frame created by the Men’s Shed programme. Photos may feature in a book or local exhibition documenting the project; however, you can still receive the free framed photo even if you don’t wish for your photo to be in the exhibition.

Storytelling workshops: (Spring 2021)

Would you like to take part in a storytelling workshop either via telephone or zoom? This will be a great opportunity to meet someone new in your local area and have a chit chat!

Photography Classes: (Summer 2021)

Would you like to explore the landscape of Fermanagh and take part in a socially distanced outdoor photography small class led by a professional photographer? If you don’t have the equipment already, we’ll loan you a camera.

Social Economy (Summer 2021)

We would like to bring a small group together to discuss how we can support our club, community or chosen charity through the sale of our creative work.
