Get craft­ing and boost your health

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Real Life -

Katy Be­van, trustee of The Her­itage Crafts As­so­ci­a­tion (her­itage­crafts.org.uk), says: Keep­ing tra­di­tional skills alive isn't just cru­cial for our cul­tural her­itage but also for our men­tal health. We lack con­trol in many ar­eas of our lives, but we can make de­ci­sions and take risks when craft­ing. And in a world full of tech­nol­ogy, it’s ground­ing to know where some­thing comes from and how it’s made. We are be­com­ing more con­scious of the en­vi­ron­men­tal cost of our pos­ses­sions these days, and the in­ter­est in tra­di­tional skills may in­crease as a re­sult.
