Batik workshop

Our textiles workshops over the last couple of weeks have focused on the art of batik.  Having been inspired by the work of Christina Szabo we have developed our batik using the theme of exotic birds.  Our attendees have demonstrated good precision in applying wax and ink which has resulted in beautiful, colourful paintings on cloth.  We are very proud that we have been able to turn these fabrics into cushions and we would like to thank our experienced seamstress Joan McDonald for her support with this.

An exploration of the theme ‘Disguise’ inspired our photography group to focus on celebrities and the paparazzi. We had lots of fun using clothing as a means of creating our own disguised celebrity whilst our cameras focused on getting that headline grabbing shot. We captured some fantastic photographs selecting just a few to present with some excellent results.

As part of our commitment to ensuring we develop knowledge and understanding of health and wellbeing amongst our attendees, we have this week taken a third group to experience the hospital tour.  The tour has been a fantastic educational and interactive experience which has helped inform our attendees of the different equipment used in the hospital.  Our attendees have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we would once again like to thank Tina and staff at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary for another fantastic tour.
