The work was created as part of the annual ST/ART art programme, an engagement project for stroke participants which is delivered across Tayside.

The project is run by Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust (THAT) in association with NHS Tayside.

Artist Jude Gove has been working with the patients in one-to-one and weekend group session at the stroke rehabilitation unit over the past four months, using a variety of arts and crafts techniques, including printmaking, felting and mosaic.

Chris Kelly, the ST/ART project coordinator, said, “It has been great to have another successful programme at Stracathro and to see a new group of participants discover that being creative can contribute to their rehabilitation and be good for their health and wellbeing.

“Our relationship with the unit staff is very strong and we really appreciate their commitment which is important to the ongoing success of the programme.”

Jude added: “At first most participants think they will not be able to do much but are amazed and delighted to discover that they can.”
