Those attending Greenbuttercup CIC’s extra Arts & Crafts session during the recent Dementia Awareness Week, enjoyed learning how to make forget-me-nots out of toilet roll inners ! The ‘forget-me-not’ is used as the logo for the Alzheimer’s Society and other dementia groups including ROMDAG.
These, as well as other ‘toilet roll’ flowers that were made during the morning, will go on display next month during the Romsey Festival. It is planned to have a vase of forget-me-nots in the Green Room at the Plaza Theatre (where the monthly Arts & Crafts sessions are held) during the “Inside Out Art Trail” (July 2nd) to advertise the classes. The others will become part of Greenbuttercup CIC’s main Festival event “All is Creative in the Garden”, which takes place in the Abbey URC from July 7th -16th.
