Yesterday saw our first workshop with the Positive Pathways group at Meadow Well Connected
To celebrate their 25th anniversary we are working with Meadow Well Connected to help tell the story of the community. Yesterday their Positive Pathways group met as usual at 10am but this week they were joined by Artist Fiona Gray to teach them how to make garden decorations from 2 liter plastic bottles.
Fiona did a brilliant job keeping this chatty bunch on track to make the plastic flowers. It was great to see the group getting involved at each stage and helping each other out when things weren’t going to plan. The group showed great team skills and enthusiasm for the project throughout and made a wonderful set of decorations between them.
Each recycled flower had a personal message added inside by the members of the Positive Pathways group, based on how they ended up at Meadow Well Connected and how the centre has helped them, the bottles were then tied together with garden twine to seal the message inside. Some of the flowers where then sprayed with gold and silver paint so that once they are hung in the orchid they will glisten in the sunlight.
