  • Making Memories / Meet Your Maker

    13/12/2016

    Over the past few months, The Living Memory Association (TheLMA) has been exploring craft and making through a craft reminiscence programme called Making Memories. To tie into this, we partnered with TheLMA to deliver a series of Meet Your Maker events in the form of drop-in craft workshops at The Little Shop of Memory in Edinburgh’s Ocean Terminal. We caught up with the team from TheLMA to hear about their Meet Your Maker experience, and get the low-down from their makers.
