We’re holding a crafternoon! Are you working on a craft project? Been meaning to start one? Bring it to Manchester Art Galleryand sit with like minded crafty folk for an afternoon of chat, craft, and cake!

We’re going to do these regularly, and each time will have a theme. The theme isn’t mandatory, and we’ll be bringing some stuff around that theme to the event if people want to have a go.

This month’s theme will be: Twiddlemuffs. They’re knitted muffs with items attached to keep dementia patients’ hands active and busy. They contain strands of textured ribbons, beads, and various fabrics attached both inside and outside. People with dementia often have restless hands and like to have something to keep their hands occupied. A twiddle muff provides a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation, and keeps hands snug and warm at the same time.

We’re planning to make some of these and donate to a local care home for residents with dementia.
