When Melbourne House Care Home came up with the idea of engaging the people they support in a craft activity, they decided to take one step further and bring it to life with a sensory experience.
Those who participated in a bird drawing session were able to explore and express their creative side with the addition of a variety of feathers in all colours and sizes to handle and use as part of their own unique artwork.
Care Home Manager at Melbourne House Care Home, Alicja Szefler says: “Craft and art activities really capture the imagination so we thought we’d help our residents fully explore their creativity, by making it a very tactile and sensory experience through the use of real feathers.”
