People in Staffordshire are being invited to learn about and experience the wellbeing benefits of taking part in craft activities. Beacon Park in the centre of Lichfield is to host two 'crafty' workshops during the course of September which also have the added benefit of enabling participants to hopefully make beautiful objects for their home. The first of the wellbeing workshops is a Beginner's Bunting Workshop which takes place on Friday 14 September from 1pm to 3pm. The session is aimed at adults and will teach participants how to make a length of vintage bunting using a sewing machine.



The second workshop of the month is entitled Happy Jars and Stones and takes place at Beacon Park on Friday 28 September from 1pm to 3pm. Also aimed at adults, the group will be set the task of decorating a glass jar to fill with happy thoughts and also paint stones to add to their gardens or leave in places for others to find to make them smile. Both of the workshops will take place in Beacon Park's Discovery Hub and cost £5 each to attend. Spaces on both the workshops are limited, so anyone interested in taking part is asked to book in advance by calling 01543 308867.



Ruth Piddington, Community and Education Officer for Lichfield District Council, said: "Taking part in craft activities has been proven to have a really positive effect on your mood. This is why we're running these crafty wellbeing workshops, to not only show how to hand make some lovely objects, but to introduce local people to what might become a new hobby that will have health giving benefits." Anyone who is unable to make either of the September sessions, but is interested in joining in future ones, is asked to register their interest by emailing [email protected]
