Art and Craft for Wellbeing


A team of our volunteers offer arts and crafts workshops at the Woking Hospice day centre every fortnight. Many of the patients find that being creative is a fantastic way to take their mind off things and enjoy some good company.

The hospice is a place where people can come to unwind, socialise get some fresh perspective. Arts and crafts can be a good way to express their feelings, without having to find the right words.

Each fortnight the craft workshop is different; from making cards, through to garden ornaments and everything in between, so there is always a chance to try something new.  Sometimes images, colours and textures can remind patients of other places and times, and so can offer fresh insights and perspectives on their emotions, ideas and memories.
