Craft Sessions with Libby
Our residents enjoy regular craft sessions with Libby at Wolfeton Manor.
Current studies in the fields of art and music therapy confirm that art can affect individuals by fostering both physiological and psychological healing. Whilst children are encouraged to be creative with arts & crafts lessons at school, it is not only young minds that can benefit from doing art to increase creativity and stimulation.
According to behavioural neurologist Bruce Miller at the University of California, whilst our brains will inevitably age, creative abilities do not necessarily deteriorate. In fact, in the studies, the ageing brain has been proven to respond well to art as we allow the brain’s two hemispheres to work in tandem.
