Creating in Company: Carinya Craft Group
Carinya Hostel is a Miles and District elderly care facility. Carinya hosts a craft group for their residents, facilitated by local artist Penny Eamer. Penny provides both group projects for collaboration, as well as matching special projects to individuals.
All residents face different physical limitations such as arthritis, diminished eyesight even in some cases loss of limbs. Those who cannot participate enjoy watching the progress of the various projects. The participants enjoy this creative time, both the challenge of making things and the sense of achievement this brings.
