Practical Workshop – How making could change your life

This workshop builds on previous research undertaken, which concluded arts-based social groups promote self-confidence, inclusion, empowerment, self-efficacy and the building of social networks. Supporting the Crafts Councils (2020) claims that “craft can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, depression, loneliness and even dementia”.

Textile crafts have the highest participation rates of all the arts and can contribute to psychological well-being. A long history has been evidenced of prescribing craft courses to relieve anxiety; participants in arts on prescription courses experience a significant increase in overall well-being, improving mood and lowering stress levels. Neurotransmitters are released through the meditative multi-sensory engagement with making, promoting positive emotions. Crafting together brings about a sense of belonging, which enhances personal and social well‐being. The workshop will reveal why craft is good for your mental health.

This presentation will take place on Zoom. After booking you will receive an email with the link and passcode a few days before the event.
