Singing Along…

Paper plate weaving

This week’s craft class at Woking’s fabulous LinkAble was just wonderful! We all ended up singing and dancing which lifted my mood no end. I run the class each week for young people with learning disabilities, and each time I come home smiling. There’s something about helping other people develop their creativity through art and craft that is so rewarding.

This week we made window charms from paper plates and weaving. Such an easy little project that can be adapted to each participant. Decorating the plate first means that you only have to weave a small amount, and it looks good. I’m all for quick results now and then.

We chose bright colours as it was a grey day, and whilst we created we sang along to a variety of songs from a rather eclectic playlist! The session was enhanced by the addition of a few students from Farnborough 6th form college who were doing some voluntary service as part of their Volunteering Week 2017 #volunteeringweek2017 . They were so enthusiastic and went home with their own window charm!
