Sustainable Arts and Crafts Workshops with The Wizard of Creation

With the support of the Creative Ireland Programme and Fingal County Council, The Wizard of Creation, Aga Hutcheson, will run a series of Sustainable Arts and Crafts Workshops in Moorehall Lodge Nursing Home in Balbriggan, County Dublin. These Workshops will utilise recycled materials, promoting sustainability, recycling, and reusing. They will enable residents to explore their creativity, promoting positivity, giving motivation, and increasing social interaction. 

Creative activities can improve thinking, encourage movement, and have a positive impact on emotions and wellbeing. This workshop is a fun therapy that lets participants spend time together, enjoy a cup of tea and sing along. Using recycled materials makes it extra special and forms a valuable connection to the community. Sustainable arts and crafts classes are proven to be great therapy for residents with early-stage Dementia as they discuss the past, bringing back memories about old-fashioned crafts and reusing materials like jam jars, hessian bags, glass bottles, etc.  

The Wizard of Creation will deliver a 10-week course of workshops commencing in February 2024. Each week, residents will work on a new craft that they can keep or gift to their family and friends. The project will culminate with a local exhibition of the work, highlighting the important role that the residents have in the community and supporting the inclusion of the older generation.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
