Art on show from hospice patients
11:17am Tuesday 15th April 2014 in Local
SNOWDROP-themed artwork created by patients at St Richard’s Hospice is being put on display in Droitwich.
30 pieces of artwork based around the hospice’s snowdrop emblem, are up on display in St Andrew’s Church Parish Centre in Droitwich until May 1.
The artworks have been created by patients at the day hospice and include all kinds of mediums from paintings, to glasswork and cushions.
Hospice creative therapist Mary Jenkins said: “St. Richard's Hospice offers many forms of support. One of these is through creative therapy. Wherever possible, creative therapy embraces the different ways patients choose to express feelings of anguish, fear, hope, reassurance, acceptance, guilt or confusion.
“Collaborative pieces work well to break down barriers, boost self-esteem and promote bonding between individuals. Showing the work gives patients the opportunity to express themselves, sharing the skills they learned and embracing and celebrating the talents of the many individuals involved.”
The centre is open from 10am to noon, Wednesday to Saturday. For more information, visit strichards.org.uk.
