Scrapbooking for Wellbeing

The Exchange, 33 Gawber Road, Barnsley S75 2AH

Discover your interests

This 3-week course will provide you with an introduction to Scrapbooking and explore how this hobby can create and enhance better wellbeing for us. By working creatively, we can help reduce stress which improves our mental health.

Within this course you will be able to share and rekindle treasured memories, start to acknowledge your own accomplishments, become more mindful and accepting of who you are, where you have been and what you are aiming for. Using easy to learn techniques, sharing ideas and recycling things that are normally thrown away, you will be able to create your own unique scrapbook.

This is also a wonderful opportunity to socialize and meet with people in a safe place where we all have a common purpose ‘to connect and belong!’.

Please note:  We will supply all the materials that are needed but we welcome you to bring anything that you feel would personalize your scrapbook such as: photos, pictures, cards, or letters.
