Join The–Dots

Intergenerational Craft Workshop - Promo Video

Elders from The Vida Walsh Centre, in Lambeth took part in a six week craft workshop with the help of year 9 students.Traditionally, rafia was woven in Jamaica to make for example hats, belts, baskets and fans. Cord and rag strips were also woven to make bed throws, cushion covers, chair backs and arm rests.
Workshop participants used these traditional methods to create baskets and wall hangings over the weekly sessions. There is no doubt that the sessions readily opened up genuine lines of communication and mutual respect between the generations and across cultures.
