Stones Place (residential home for the elderly)- Workshop 3
I worked alongside the elderly and infirm at this residential home. It was a very challenging workshop as the adults enjoyed holding the tactile materials, but dexterity was an issue with may needing support from carers to perform small tasks. Overall the atmosphere was happy and relaxed but the adults found feltmaking very modern and difficult to accomplish.
