Working with Older People


We have collaborated on a number of projects with older people in the local community.

Some recent projects include a project at Moorcroft Day Centre, where centre users put together a fabric piece, 'Stitching Your Memories', choosing to produce through knitting, crochet, felt,  pompoms,  bobbles,  French knitting and finger knitting. Working with fabric artist Kathryn Hitchings, they incorporated elements of their own memories into the final work, which was displayed at The Lightbox.

At The Vyne Community Centre, artist Sue Halloway worked with a group to develop their drawing and painting skills in reponse to works in The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art. The works were exhibited at The Lightbox.

Both projects were part of the 'Our Museum' initiative, funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Find out more.
