We were commisioned by High Peak Community Arts to delivered four Arts sessions at Whitfield House – Extra Care Housing Complex – South Yorkshire Housing Association funded by Derbyshire County Council Intergenerational Stategy.
November 2016 – We worked with air drying clay and made models and imprints of autumn leaves.
December 2016 – We made Christmas Wreaths and talked about the festive season with and without families.
January 2017 – We used recycled textiles to make a wall hanging from woven panels. We discussed Glossop’s Mill town heritage.
February 2017 – We welcomed Spring with watercolur paintings of spring flowers.
Some of our work with Age Uk looked at Spring, we made these beautiful paper birds. One of the participants remembered being evacuated to a village in Lancashire in WW2 from Salford and had never before heard birdsong.
