Throughout April 2022, over 25 tenants & 10 staff in Turriff's Dawson Court Very Sheltered Housing complex worked with a textile artist (Frieda Strachan) and filmmaker (Poppycock Films) to explore creativity as a tool for self-expression. Called 'Felt Fine', tenants were encouraged to use the tactile material of unspun wool to weave landscapes inspired by living in rural Aberdeenshire.
