I'm organising a  8 week series of 'craftea chats'  for women who have experienced mental illness and are based in Melbourne.

We'll have different materials and teachers each week and you can bring along your current project or learn a new skill such as knitting, sewing or cross stitch. All materials are provided and each session is free. Depression, anxiety and the like can be lonely and isolation and the workshops are a great chance to meet other women and engage in some crafty fun while enjoying tea and bickies.

Weekly from August 6th
6.15-8.15pm
Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane, Melbourne

The workshops are funded through a grant by The City of Melbourne and auspicing of the Victorian Mental Illness Awareness Council

Interested? Check out the details below and email [email protected] to book your place (spaces are limited).

They've been absolutely fantastic! If I can get some more funding, I'd love to organise another series. As a group we are putting together a zine and I'll keep you all posted when it's ready to be distributed...

Seriously ace work ms!  I have heard such wonderful things from various participants.  And I got to go to two and had a much needed chill out!

You should definitely get more funding!  Yay the magic funding tree!
