Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service have been working in partnership with East London Mental Health Support (ELMS) to provide community based jewellery making and craft workshops at Gyms Kitchen on Leytonstone High Road on Tuesdays for five weeks. Many of the learners have not made jewellery or tried crafts before, but everyone has made pendants, necklaces, felt brooches and Christmas decorations as well as scented orange and clove pomanders.

The course is part of the learners recovery and well-being so that they can become more independent with new skills and confidence.

Eleanor Watson (Jewellery Tutor) has really enjoyed working together with these new learners and getting to know each other. Thanks to Andy at ELMS and Feroz Khan(Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service Community Outreach Officer) for arranging these sessions.
