It was the final session of our project based at Lynfield Mount Hospital this week. We’ve been working there since January.
We spent the morning finishing off our collaborative textile piece, made using nature prints from the hospital garden.
Tea break was much enhanced by some leaf inspired biscuits made by a participant.
We’ve had some very positive feedback …
I’m outside a lot now, I’m much more actively noticing things. When I’m out on my bike I see things I can mention at the group. I think I’ve learnt to look in a different way.
I’d like to do more arts and crafts. It’s a big boost for me and I’ve learned that things take time and effort. I’ve learned a lot about acceptance and patience from this group.
I’ve found myself looking at the environment in a different way. I share things I see with my partner. I notice more. The course has made me notice things outside myself.
It’s been a great experience working in this setting, and co-facilitating the project with Helios Centre staff. Thanks very much to everyone involved.
