Main project activities

Handmade Wellbeing project was comprised of three different types of activities. Each partner

  1. offered a set of arts & crafts workshops in elderly care settings and trained arts and crafts students / professionals to facilitate them
  2. arranged a training week for other partners
  3. introduced the project results in a seminar and an exhibition for stakeholders and learners

The reflection sessions that were arranged during each training week made it possible to comment and share views and best practices of working creatively with older people, and to develop them together. The participants from all the partner countries worked collaboratively in the reflection sessions to create the ‘Handmade Wellbeing Handbook. Facilitating art and craft workshops for older people in care settings‘.
