SCOLA Sutton College has been working with the London Borough of Sutton on an intergenerational design project.
The project involved a team of 8 young people and 10 older people co-designing tableware, based on recent research into the health benefits of using contrasting colours in tableware.
‘As part of work that clinical colleagues have been undertaking in relation to End of Life Care and Dementia, we have been made aware of some research which identifies that, by using high contrast colours for drinking vessels and cutlery, tablecloths etc. There is a much higher level of fluid and food intake.This small change can radically alter a client’s activities of daily living, and potentially prevent ill health.’ Eleanor Brown
Ceramics for the project were made at the College and some can be seen in the exhibition to be held from March 20th – April 4th in the Europa Gallery at Sutton library.
