Description

The aim of this course is to allow the participants to explore different creative activities that can promote mindfulness and well-being. Engaging in activities, through choice, that allow for personal ‘me-time’, the opportunity to learn new skills and to focus on something other than our everyday problems can be very beneficial in terms of stress management and well-being as well as being enjoyable. Over the duration of this course participants will get the opportunity to sample a number of different creative activities and determine whether any of them are ones they find it useful to engage in. Learning will be undertaken in a calm and relaxed way with the emphasis on enjoying the process of doing and making rather than the production of ‘finished’ work.

 

Course content:

Each week, the course participants will get the opportunity to try a different activity that may be helpful in providing relaxing ‘me time’ and mindfulness with opportunity to consider the practical aspects of engaging in the craft or progressing in their learning. Activities will be varied but may include; simple bookbinding, mandala painting, mindful doodling, English paper piecing (patchwork) ‘adult colouring’ (card making).
