Did you know that crafts are considered to be an excellent way to work through the pressures of daily life stressors? For over a century in the United States, crafts have played an integral part in therapeutic practices. The idea of providing crafts as a creative outlet emerged during the First World War in response to the needs of the returning soldiers. More recently, research has revealed that crafts can provide a variety of tangible health benefits, such as feelings of relaxation, stress relief, a sense of accomplishment, increased happiness, reduced anxiety, and enhanced confidence.
In this webinar, presenter Kimberli Buckley will discuss how to put together an adult craft program on a budget, how to utilize crafts to promote awareness, and she will offer a wide variety and range of craft examples that will prove that crafts aren’t just for kids. Additionally, she will discuss history of crafts and the current state of the crafting world as well as the therapeutic and health benefits that crafts can provide for adults.
