Two weeks ago, the Arcare Craigieburn community started a new creative project; crafting birthday cards. Residents have been busy with these stunning creations and have decided to dedicate them to Arcare staff members.
Ted, Norma, Cheryl, Betty H, Visha, Porferica, Maria A and Joan meet regularly for a special craft group where the magic happens. Utilising intricate collage techniques, the group spends their crafternoons making each card special for the birthday person. An array of patterns, textures, colours and ideas are on show and the creative energy mustered up has produced 30 unique cards so far.
But, they aren’t sopping there! The plan is to continue to make the cards until there is enough for an entire year. After that, it’ll be onto the next project – Christmas cards!
