Create your own Gonk

Prosper House, Prosper House, 59 Upper Warrengate, Wakefield WF1 4JZ

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Using items found around the home these cute gonks are made from wool and cardboard tubing (kitchen rolls), fun things to keep or give to others.

Crafting can provide you with a means of expressing yourself through creativity whilst distracting you from your ailments, anything negative in your lives.

Crafting can provide you with a sense of purpose, empowering you to try new things to help build your confidence.

This is a chance to relax, connect with other like-minded people in a calm and safe environment.

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.

Please note that some of the materials used in these sessions may not be able to be taken on to ward environments.
