An ideal place to live?

Over the past few weeks I’ve been working with young offenders in Camden, looking at ideas around happiness. We’ve explored feelings visually, done some mindful meditations (including a chocolate meditation I can highly recommend), explored unexpected beauty in the local environment on the Euston estates around the centre where we work and created this hand-felted banner reflecting an idea place to live. I’m totally delighted with this piece and will post a better, less shadowy photo soon. There’ve been just a couple of very challenging characters – that was to be expected – but I’ve warmed to the young people and discovered how the process of creating allows them to express what’s on their minds. I think they were astonished at what they’d helped to create.
