Drawing and Wellbeing – never to late!

This Christmas I fibbed to my mother… I told her I had a work event and needed her to babysit but in-fact I was taking her to a craft night.

She didn’t want to go, she “doesn’t do art, can’t”.

Within a few minutes of the first activity (stamping) she announced it was calming!

The second activity was met with “No. I can’t sew!” shortly followed by “It only blanket stitch!” (I had no idea what that was 🤷🏼‍♀️).

The third was wreath making, where she and I managed to create ones that were good enough to adorn the graves of our loved ones this Christmas (big deal in my family).

I am 40 and she is 75 years young.

I have done arts and crafts all my life. I have a BA, and MA in Fine Art and a PGCE to teach Art and Design plus 15 years teaching experience.

This was the first time we have ever done an artistic activity together.

We had a great night.

The point of this is to say, it’s never to late to try something creative!
