Event description

Description

Hullabaloo and Wavemaker Stoke merge cutting-edge technology with traditional crafts in this workshop to create Twiddlemuffs, which can be taken home or donated to benefit people who live with dementia. Design and create your own buttons with Wavemaker and learn to knit and stitch with Hullaballoo.

What is a Twiddlemuff?: A Twiddlemuff is a double thickness hand muff with buttons, toggles, tag etc. attached inside and out. It is designed to provide a stimulation activity for restless hands for patients suffering from dementia. They have been made by Women’s Institute members, NHS trusts and charities and other independent charities such as Knit for Peace.
