Objects, Memories and Patterns

Whitefarm Lodge Session 2 005I've had the privilege to work with a group of older people in a residential home on a project that began with patterns and moved through objects and memories to create more patterns. Whitefarm Lodge February 2013 007It was also an opportunity to work in a collaborative way to an extent that I haven't done in a long time. I invited a very talented volunteer, Sarah Cowley, to work with me on the project and the depth and richness she gave it balanced my anxieties about time. Credits to Sarah for her vision and hours of work in putting it together. A participant who opened up more with each session said he would remember it each time he passed the hanging in the corridor ... I hope he does!
