Arts & Craft

Arts and crafts is growing in popularity with retirees as they explore the fascination of a new hobby or rediscover the pleasures of an activity from their past.

Participation is more than just an enjoyable way to pass the time, it’s a great way to keep physically and mentally active, build new skills and make new friends.

Many retirement villages offer arts and crafts workshops and classes on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Some have developed into clubs where residents meet on a regular basis and can work on projects whenever they wish.

You’ll find a very wide range of arts and crafts to choose from, including calligraphy, digital photography, scrapbooking, quilt making, sewing, painting, drawing or pottery.
