home is where the ART is Exhibition – Forest Court Care

Forest Court Care

For this exhibition, Artspace tutor Lizzie Godden ran an online workshop with Forest Court, a local care home that caters for adults living with varying degrees of dementia.

The spring theme was chosen as it is at the fore front of their minds at the moment.

Some people really took their time deciding where to place things, which colour to use, where to place the stamp and that can be seen in regular patterns. Others knew straight away what they wanted (to have fun with the printing.)

The partially sighted and severe dementia felt all the equipment, stamps and material. Feeling where to put things, making gestures and pointing for what should be used and where to place their stamp.

We are very proud of what they have created.
