A workshop felting with the elderly was frankly not something I wanted to do immediately. Why would I want to work with the elderly? In retrospect that was a judgment from ignorance. Now i see this age group has a lot of life wisdom to offer, but is little challenged to pass on the often beautiful stories to future generations.
They can do this at Stoute Schoenen Foundation. The foundation organizes activating and vitalizing art and culture programs for the elderly. A very grateful group of participants to work with.
Felting is a very free way to express your ideas. This is a real challenge in a world where we learn to live in a structured way. So my challenge is to get the participants out of their comfort zone and let them take an unknown road.
