Stitching Time

A creative intergenerational project bringing together 2 diverse groups of our community: urban primary & secondary school children and residents of care homes specialising in Alzheimer’s care.

By exploring aging caring and memory, creating connections and a sense of purpose, the children have crafted personalised memory cushions that bring joy and comfort to the elderly.

Textile workshops led by Tisna Westerhof, Mary McInerney and Cristiana Bottigella.

Enjoy the the sweet little film by Paper-clip about spreading kindness in Lewisham, South London.
