Working on a Twiddle Muff

Twiddle Muffs are colorful, captivating sensory therapy tools designed to keep the restless hands of people with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia occupied, calm and warm. Each Twiddle Muff is unique and can be designed to fit the ever-changing needs of the individual.

Started on a plein air oil painting

En plein air, or plein air painting, is the act of painting outdoors. This method contrasts with studio painting or academic rules that might create a predetermined look.

Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”

  1. Ek dink in Afrikaans word daardie “twiddle muffs” vertaal na vroetel lappies. Ek het dit baie in die hospitaal in ons Alzheimer saal gesien en dit het werklik ‘n kalmerende effek op die pasiente. En nie een lappie lyk dieselfde nie, dus kan mens lekker uiting gee aan jou kreatiwiteit. Van “plein air painting” het ek nog nooit gehoor nie … dit lyk baie interessant!
