    Story

    What is a Spoonful of Crafting?
    A Spoonful of Crafting is a super awesome community initiative supporting and inspiring healing through crafting. We believe that everyone should have the chance to experience crafting and the many emotional, psychological and physical benefits it can bring. A Spoonful of Crafting provides amazing free craft kits to people with mental and physical health issues, and people who are in end of life care. We are a confidential service and disclosing your illness is always your choice. We are completely financed by donations Our lovingly made kits will take you step by step through making a beautiful and unique craft, that you can keep for yourself or give as a gift.

    Why is crafting so helpful?
    Illness changes people lives in immeasurable and often uncontrollable ways. Confident people become shy, physically active people become housebound, and social people become lonely. Our kits give our recipients, (or our hive of Crafters as we call them), the opportunity to spend an hour or two making something beautiful. Our crafts can help distract our crafters from chronic pain, or help them gently move their arthritic fingers; it can provide them with a sense of self worth, teach them a new skill, it can improve self confidence and it can offer the chance be in control of something in their lives, when sometimes every other thing is out of their control.

    So what exactly is in a Spoonful Kit?
    Our kits have absolutely everything you need to make one craft (except sometime scissors), they come with detailed instructions which take you through the whole making process. Some of our kits are for families to make with children; offering a chance to re-connect with family amid the turmoil and sadness of illness. Some of our kits contain 2 identical crafts, offering a social activity that a crafter can do with a visiting friend. We even have kits that are perfect for people with limited abilities, which can be made with help from a carer.
