Have a look at the gorgeous work done by the group at Herbies drop -in.
We are delighted to be back at Herbies drop in at Great Yarmouth Salvation Army to be weaving again with the group for Catching the Memories Project.
All the members of the Catching the Memories team had a day’s training in gathering oral history delivered by Colin Stott from the museum staff and how to work with people living with dementia given by Jackie Tierney from the Acorn Centre.
We had a really enjoyable and enlightening day and learned a lot. It was also a chance for all of us to meet one another. We practiced interviewing other with the digital recording equipment.
We’ve been making small things for Easter – egg baskets and a decorative platter all in cane.
The group at Headway are putting their new found skills to use weaving some beautiful things out of cane and willow. We have also had the chance to look at one of the baskets from Time and Tide Museum to compare the techniques we are using with those of the past.
Joan has nearly finished her basket.
Janet has finished hers and started on an egg basket.
Owen has been weaving with willow, making an obelisk and a tension plate.
