Silk Scarf

Silk Scarf

Each Monday afternoon, Veteran and community residents attend the popular silk scarf making class in the painting studio on the second floor of the Perley Rideau Health Centre.  Each resident chooses his/her favourite colour and instructors assist by providing the inks and guidance that can only come from experience. 

At the end of this creative process, residents are always in awe of the mix of colours after the scarves are ironed and the colours are fixed.

Many residents make scarves as gifts while others opt to sell their scarves.
