To demonstrate and get service users actively involved in the use of Digital Media in the design and production of personalized printed material.

To provide an opportunity for the elderly to contribute to young people’s education.


Self Portraits

A collection of self-portrait dry point prints, made by elders at The Grange Centre using both modern digital technology and traditional hand crafted print making techniques.


Cloth Cushions and Puppets

A collection of cushions which were designed like samplers for family and friends of the elders they were also designed to engage primary school children in learning about the lives of the older generation.


My Story Cards

The story cards were made by elders for the family and friends as a way to celebrate and acknowledge their own lives. People using their own original artwork, family photographs and words illustrated personal histories and memories.


Wood Carving

Images of work produced during a one year Woodcarving residency at The Grange with artists Jill and Lee Brewster were exhibited.

Jill and Lee were commissioned to work with service users to design and make two sets of double doors for the main hall of the Grange Centre. Jill worked with groups engaging them in carving seven panels as practice pieces before they finally produced four beautiful carved solid Oak doors, which are at the entrance to the main hall. These doors make a significant impact on the interior of The Grange and the people who use it.


Ceramics
