Arts and Crafts Courses


Dates: 30/11/2018 16:30:00_21/12/2019 16:00:00

We warmly invite you to come to Hawkwood for our arts and crafts series. All are welcome - no experience necessary.

Working with the hands with crafts or painting can help those who suffer from anxiety, depression or chronic pain, experts say. It can also improve hand-eye coordination, ease stress, increase happiness and protect the brain from damage caused by ageing. Neuroscientists are beginning to see how finely detailed work like embroidery induce a natural state of “zen” or mindfulness. At times of economic stress and social upheaval, people tend towards doing craftwork. Creating something original of our own makes us feel good. Come and learn a new skill and have fun in the process!

Led by expert tutors, the residential weekends begin with supper together on Friday evening (unless otherwise indicated) and continues with making, creating and instruction interspersed with further delicious home-cooked meals and refreshments.

All our craft tutors are practising artists with experience in teaching people of all abilities and levels of experience. Materials are usually included, and sometimes we ask you to bring an apron if necessary.
