Crafting skills and friendships
The group is the result of an ongoing partnership between Mai-Wel’s Outreach service and the Rutherford Community Centre.
Formed in 2016, the group meets every Tuesday morning and includes a diverse range of community members, including Mai-Wel participants, who enjoy the social benefits of sharing morning tea while learning new skills.
Members work together to choose future craft projects and have the option of bringing their own projects from home to work on. They also contribute to local fundraising efforts throughout the year, including the Winter Food Drive and Christmas hampers.
“Mai-Wel participants have really been enjoying the social time with friends and some of their favourite crafting projects have included making dream catchers, festive decorations and jewellery”, said Mai-Wel’s Outreach Manager, Rachel.
All community members are welcome to join the craft group. For more information, please contact the Rutherford Community Centre on 4932 0950.
