Last week our last Ladysbridge Stories workshops took place in what was a very sunny Aberdeen. We were delighted to see so many familiar faces, a few that we hadn’t seen in a while, not to mention a few new ones, as we welcomed Sam to the group with her beautiful and very well behaved guide dog Rihanna.
We very much enjoyed catching up with everyone! We had a very busy day in the workshop, collating and sorting through all of the beautiful images drawn by everyone over the course of all of our workshops.
Our task for the day was to complete as many new drawings as we could to represent all of the aspects of life at Ladysbridge Hospital, from the working life of patients at the hospital to the social and special events and day to day routines.
The artwork produced will be used to illustrate the fantastic stories that everyone has been so generous to share with us over the course of this project. We had a very productive day with everyone rising to this challenge.
The session ended in a very positive light, with everyone excited by the work produced and looking forward to the final launch of the project in May 2018.
