Residents have been showing their artistic side at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham this week.
Blanche made a start on a new piece of art for the corridor gallery, inspired by the design of a children’s book she saw in a magazine. She liked the arrangement and contrast of the sun and moon, and started by creating the moon by going through her own button tin.
That just left the sun, and Blanche and Sheila discussed how to make it stand out once the face was finished. The yellow buttons they had just didn’t look right, and after a lot of thought and different ideas, they came up with the idea of paper quilling. They gave it a go and the problem was solved! The concept worked well and the sun and moon really stand out in the finished piece. The finished artwork will soon be hanging on the wall for everyone to enjoy.
In the next Art and Craft club, the residents will be experiencing and having a go at the Japanese art of origami.
