Brooklyn House Get Stuck Into Decoupage

Brooklyn House residents have been busy with some decoupage recently.

Decoupage started in the Victorian era and comprises of using pictures, wallpaper or anything pretty to decorate objects by gluing them on and covering in a varnish.

Residents have enjoyed taking cuttings of pictures from donated magazines. This brought about a lot of reminiscence as they browsed at images of old movie stars, the Royal family, animals and a host of other subjects.

They are now getting “stuck in” to decorating all sorts including glasses cases (as seen in the picture) and biscuit tins.

Regular activity is extremely beneficial to our residents, especially those who have the beginning of dementia or concentration issues.These types of activities help keep them involved in the world around them and mixing with the other residents. It also provides them with daily activities and exercises their brains.

We look forward to seeing what beautiful gifts we can create in the coming weeks.
