Crafters' Delight Social Groups 
Is our blended learning model using zoom, it's a great tool to expand social networks and engage those who may normally have limited access to attending groups. Minimize the pressure that can be created in the lead up to going to in-person groups, reduce travel hassles and feel free to wake up 5min beforehand and attend in your Pjs surrounded by the things that make you comfortable. I hope this model can bridge the gap for you and I look forward to hearing from you or your Support Coordinator soon. 

About: 
Join our crafting groups. Each week we will work on some paper crafting and complete 9 cards designed and prepared by Art For The Mind over the month. Each card project is clearly labeled and has both written and video tutorials available to help address different learning styles, speeds and any missed groups. Crafters' Delights Social Groups are social groups not instructional classes, but support on completing card packs or other paper crafting projects will be provided.

The group sizes will still be kept small for the best chance to actually get to know each other and more directed support. We hope it is a place where you can feel safe to tell your truths, face your inner self and become part of a new support network. We will introduce a range of spiritual and mental health strategies. It will involve an open discussion, possible handouts or an activity. These will be done in a light-hearted manner and you will be encouraged to host this section and share an activity or strategy you use with the class. It will not be therapy itself but act as a bit of a taster to see if this is of interest or a possible effective strategy. Together we will share achievements and celebrations, but where it’s also okay to not-be-okay. At Art For The Mind there is no requirement to participate, although we know you’ll love it when you do. We understand that sometimes just simply logging in and showing up is an achievement enough. 

Membership & Perks: 
Memberships are offered Crafters' Delights Social Groups. Memberships are for the regular weekly attendance for that particular class. They are rolling membership, with end dates dependent on availability within your NDIS plan. Prices are fixed so no not knowing how much each week might cost based on who else attends.
