13th January Workshop Pompoms

In December I brought in some archive film clips of children playing in the 1940s and began discussion about what residents used to do as children.  I also brought along books of stories, artwork and photos of other intergenerational project work I had been involved in, and start to gauge interest in our project.

Today I brought in wool too, and started to see what crafts residents were already familiar with.  Everyone seemed to have heard of corking and had made pompoms, so this seemed to be a good place to start.  We made eight pompoms between us (photos below) and discussed sharing with Freya's friends at Kings Heath Community Centre Stay and Play.

Freya also had fun playing with wool and residents.
