Charlotte Cranidge holds a BA in Painting, and now practises in printmaking. She facilitates artistic workshops that aim to celebrate creativity and support the wellbeing and recovery of older adult patients at West Middlesex University Hospital.

Charlotte’s weekly workshop for CW+ is delivered either to small groups of patients, or at bedside – engaging as many people as possible. Sessions are carefully designed to help improve the dexterity, movement, and the concentration of the participants. Beyond her work in the hospital, Charlotte has been involved with Boston Manor House, Dulwich Picture Gallery and Orleans House Gallery. Her practice continues to evolve and explore art forms to find fresh ways of creating personable and playful experiences.
