Creating craftsmen at Goldcrest House is all in day’s work during a woodworking workshop.
This hands-on series of lessons is part of the Goldcrest House activity schedule that provides opportunities to take part in meaningful tasks aimed at developing confidence and independence.
The practical nature of the workshops is designed to improve hand-eye coordination, concentration, memory skills and social skills.
Completing such tasks has huge mental and psychological benefits for all involved.
