Eyebrow Arts make live art with and for people with dementia and those who care for them. As regular visitors to our Harford Hill and Rosewood Community Hubs we are delighted to be able to offer their activities online for you to enjoy in your own home.
These five minute long videos allow you to get creative with Dot, Sorrel and Holly and celebrate the creative potential of the ordinary items we have to hand.
Note: to stay Covid safe, please wash your hands or use sanitizer before and after all of these activities.
