Are you caring for a family member or friend and would enjoy getting creative to reduce stress?

The WEA in partnership with Cambridgeshire Skills have free adult learning classes that will teach you how to reduce your stress levels in a creative way.

The online courses are:

“Be less stressed through art” taster and course, 28 April 2022, 6pm.

You will learn about reducing stress levels through art activities and relaxation techniques. In a safe and supportive atmosphere you will find out which art activity you and other students enjoy and what could you help destress. You will also practise simple relaxation techniques using breathwork exercises and mindfulness to help you relax further.

“Be less stressed through creative writing” taster and course 25 March 2022,

The session will help you identify what stress is, what can cause it and how you can use creative writing to manage stress, support your wellbeing and improve resilience. Each week you will participate in a short, engaging creative writing exercise as well as sharing and group discussions centred around beating stress.
