Workshops in Elderly Care Settings

The aim of the Handmade Wellbeing project was to enhance and expand professional competences of arts and crafts practitioners to conduct craft activities in elderly care contexts. During the project, each partner offered arts and crafts workshops in elderly care settings in their respective countries and trained learners to facilitate the workshops. Depending on the type of the organization, the learners were arts and crafts students, teachers or other professionals who wanted to develop professionally. The themes, working methods and techniques of the workshops were chosen and developed by the the partner organizations, as were the methods of training the workshop facilitators. The purpose was to share and learn methods and practice from each other and to collaboratively develop them.

Find below details about the workshops in each partner country, as well as information about the workshop facilitators and how they they were trained, and the collaborating care settings in which the workshops were run in.
