Embracing Creativity: Seniors Thrive in Arts and Crafts at Pebble/Seagrass Workshop

Published on Tuesday, 21 May 2024 at 12:56:56 PM

There are many different potential benefits of participating in arts and crafts for the elderly, even if it involves them trying some activities for the first time.

One of the many benefits include participating in crafts which provide a creative outlet for our seniors and can help them express their thoughts and feelings, along with creating something tangible that has meaning for them. It’s not about making a piece or item that is perfect or them being highly skilled, its about trying new things and learning along the way. There is no right or wrong way to be creative. It’s all about taking part and giving it a go.

On Wednesday, 15 May the Seniors Staying Connected had another well attended program and this time it was with the incredible Sandy from Pink Sugar Craft who come along with the exciting craft, Pebble/ Seagrass Art, which can be described as amazing.

The workshop had everyone using their imaginations and it was so enjoyable. Congratulations to our amazing seniors who all went home with their masterpieces.

Big shout out to Sandy for coming out to Kambalda to deliver this incredible Pebble/ Seagrass art workshop.
