Arts and crafts for wellbeing

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

The course will allow learners to develop art and craft skills through exploring techniques to complete 2 mini projects:

‘Marvellous Monograms’ – Learners will create a no sew decorative textile square using art and crafts techniques including fabric collage and drawing with thread to make a unique personal canvas square reflecting their initials

‘Totes Amaze’ Building on the techniques used, learners will use techniques including masking, stencil making, stencilling, tracing, and painting to create their own unique design on a useful Tote bag

This course is being hosted by the WEA. Once you have enrolled on this course with us, you will also be required to register on the WEA system by telephoning 0300 303 3464 or by visiting their course page Craft, Craft – General: Arts and Crafts for Wellbeing (C3681579) (

Please ensure you let the College know at the time of booking if you have any dexterity issues or other concerns around using smaller pieces of equipment. Our crafting sessions often use equipment that may be more challenging to use with dexterity issues (such as pencils, pastels, sewing equipment or paintbrushes) and if informed in advance, we are able to make our sessions fully accessible for those with additional crafting support needs.

How do I enrol?

You are not referred to the Recovery College, you can simply enrol yourself, or on behalf of someone, for any of our courses that may be of interest to you. Our courses are open to all adults and we welcome carers, supporters and professionals too.
