Refugee Workshops

Here are some photos from our Red Cross sessions in Barnsley and Rotherham.

In Barnsley each person made their own unique collage based around the theme of Journeys, usually starting with a map of their home country and around it all the things of importanc e to them – loved ones, people left behind, the stars in Sudan, the horses in Aleppo and details of the old life they had to leave behind.

In Rotherham, aswell as the collages, we made keyrings using Shrinkles plastic. The wonder  of seeing the plastic curl up and shrink in the oven is magical no matter how many times I see it!

The sessions were full of concentration, laughter and stories and I will remember them for a long time.
