Throughout April 2022, I worked with tenants and staff in Turriff's Dawson Court Very Sheltered Housing complex, exploring creativity as a tool for self-expression, connection and wellbeing. Called 'Felt Fine', the project which was commissioned by Live Life Aberdeenshire, encouraged tenants to create landscape pieces inspired by living in rural Aberdeenshire.
Tenants used weaving, peg loom weaving, spinning and carding to create a triptych to put on display in the housing complex.
I worked alongside Jason Sinclair of Poppycock Films who filmed each of the creative sessions to create the short film below.
In November 2022, we were awarded the Social Care and Creativity award at Luminate Scotland's Creative Ageing Awards. I was invited to speak as part of the Creative Ageing Conference in March 2023.
