The details that last

We tell stories with our hands, and our hands tell stories about us.

The Creative Arts Team at Dorothy House spend time with patients and their families, producing a very special keepsake – a clasped hands cast. Made by dipping the hands into a latex solution to produce a mould, they then produce casts using plaster of Paris.

These casts capture an amazing level of detail, and are a lasting memory for the bereaved to remember their loved one by.
