Recordings will be made available and additional support and recourses
Its aimed at all ages and anyone interested in making and learning carving/whittling techniques! From my experience teaching woodcarving courses I have learnt that students have found the time fly by because they have been engrossed in the carving and being in the moment. They have learnt something new and made new friends! I think the whittling course will have similar benefits!

The Good Mental Health Cooperative supports people to access community based activities and workshops which help with inclusion, recovery and good mental health. The support is intended for people who have experienced serious life challenges, are socially isolated, anxious or lacking in confidence. This may include experience of mental ill-health, addictions, disability, bereavement, caring responsibilities for example. At the Good Mental Health Cooperative, we believe that connecting with others, and informal learning opportunities, are really important steps to good mental health, bringing a sense of inclusion and challenge, rather than feeling isolated and lacking in purpose. www.goodmentalhealth.org.ukEmail
