Creative Caring @ Flamsteed Centre

The Flamsteed Centre is a day centre for older people, some with dementia. We have been working with the group since January creating artwork to stimulate senses, help conversations and make lasting moments for the participants.
We created a range of artwork such as printed fabric bags, paper lanterns, batik cushions, bird sculptures, poem collage and block printing.
