Positively Crafty is there to offer the opportunity for people to come along, craft together and learn different crafting skills. It has been proven that creative activity can help wellbeing in so many ways and be beneficial. It allows people the opportunity to focus on positive things in a friendly, supportive, ‘safe’ environment, building confidence and forging friendships. The sessions are fun, everyone helps each other and has a laugh. Engaging in a creative activity absorbs your mind and body and helps you to feel more relaxed thus creating a distraction from your pain. Expressing yourself freely is inspiring and encourages positive feelings and enhances wellbeing. New friends, new crafts, new skills are achievable each month. Long term chronic pain can be debilitating and isolating that’s why these sessions mean so much to the members. By coming to crafty you are immediately enveloped in warmth, encompassed in emotional support and given something to look forward to and at the end of each session, to go home with a sense of achievement.
