Catching the Memories Training

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.

Sewing Circle

We settled down to stitching on the sewing plates we made last week. We achieved that lovely state where we were stitching together in companionable silence.

We also made some new plates for future weeks which we left to dry on the shelf.
