Bee Well Crafternoons – Chorlton [March 2022]

Bee Well Crafternoons is a 10 week creative sewing course for adults facing mental health challenges.

The course will be led by a Stitched Up tutor and will focus on creativity and resourcefulness using reclaimed materials.

Over the 10 week course we will be learning different textile craft skills, including knitting, crochet, hand and machine sewing, visible mending, darning, embroidery, applique, needle felting and more.

After taking the groups online at the start of the pandemic, we are excited to announce that we are back to our in person meetup groups. This years course will take place at a brand new venue at Chorlton Scouts Hut [down the road from our Chorlton HQ].

The group will provide a safe and supportive environment in which to learn and share new skills and get to know peers in your community with common interests and who face similar issues.

While the initial few sessions will follow a pre-prepared learning plan, as the programme progresses and the group gets to know one another, we will be encouraging YOU to shape the course content. We’ll be asking for input on the textile crafts you’d like to learn, and inviting you to share your own skills with the group – if you feel confident to do so (no pressure though!).

The year’s group will also be encouraged to keep in communication outside of the sessions via a group chat hosted by our Stitched Up Facilitator. This will be to give you the opportunity to troubleshoot and share any projects you may be working on – the group chat is not compulsory.

Fancy joining us? We’d love to hear from you. Get in touch for more info and to reserve your place!

The course is completely FREE to attend (available for those living in the Chorlton, Whalley Range and Fallowfield area), thanks to funding from the Manchester Wellbeing Fund.
