School of Humanities and Social Sciences create Craft Club for student wellbeing
The department of Media, Culture, Communication in the School of HSS has established a new initiative to create space for students to socialise and support their wellbeing.
It also aims to breathe life into the student social zone of the John Foster Building and help create a sense of creative community.
The first event took place on 23rd March, where students produced large-scale drawings based on projected scenes from films.
Led by Media, Culture and Communications lecturer, Dr Bee Hughes, and supported by School of Humanities and Social Science funds, they said:
"Craft Club is an opportunity for students across all levels of study to meet, eat, and learn new skills. There is growing evidence that craft activities and groups can provide wellbeing benefits across age groups, and we hope the regular clubs will help our students feel settled, safe, and happy at the university while learning skills to support them beyond university."
The next MCC Craft Club will take place on Thursday 7th April, 5pm-7pm.
Students from across HSS are welcome to join in. Please register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/mcc-craft-club-2-tickets-306504181257
