“The workshop helps us understand our emotions and know it’s okay to feel a bit nervous.”

“The children enjoyed the workshop, they could relate to the story and how switching off their brain was hard for them too.”

Sock Cats Craft Sessions


For people to learn how to make a basic craft item from recycled items around the home. The aim of the sessions was to improve people’s health and wellbeing by reducing loneliness during the uncertain pandemic times.


“I just wanted to say how much I appreciated the sock dolls course. I think Patricia is a natural teacher.”

“I enjoyed the course and seeing and talking to the other participants. Patricia was very helpful, patient and encouraging.”

“I would like to thank Patricia for the excellent teaching sessions we received to produce our lovely unique cats. They were easy to follow and the cat is now in the possession of my 5 year old granddaughter.”
