Silk painting workshop to help boost wellbeing


Local people over 50 are being invited to take part in a silk painting workshop as part of a health and wellbeing coffee morning.

The health and wellbeing coffee mornings take place each year and are run by the Wakefield health and wellbeing team, which is provided by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

This year’s coffee morning will take place at St Botolph’s Parish Rooms in Knotttingley on Wednesday 17th October and will run from 10am till 12pm. As part of the free event people will be able to try their hand at silk painting. No experience or artistic flair is required and anyone over the age of 50 is invited to come along to give it a try.

Speaking about the event Jackie Sharp, health and wellbeing development worker, said “This is a fantastic opportunity for us all to all get together to try something new or practice an existing skill. It will give people chance to meet new people at the same time as boosting their wellbeing through this creative activity.”

The coffee morning will also include a number of information stalls providing details of local support available to promote improved health and wellbeing.

Places at the silk painting workshop are limited and booking is recommended to ensure your place. Please contact Jackie Sharp, health and wellbeing development worker on 01977 705473 or e-mail
