Project afternoon on Erisort Ward

I took along some activities to Erisort Ward this afternoon.

Hand tied flower bouquets, Herring Girls modelling from the Katie Scarlet Howard exhibition recently at An Lanntair and some wax and watercolour technique painting as offered by Mhairi Hedderwick.

The 5 people who came along had been on different wards for varying amounts of time and their stories ranged from the shock of a fall and an unexpected admission, through frustration at waiting to go home and on to boredom and feeling the long hours.

We created some fun models, some little posies and paintings and had a chat to break up the day.  Learned that one lady particularly loved sewing and another loved baking – possible ideas for the future.
