Workshops

At Make, Do and Mend, we like to have our fingers in lots of pies. Our various workshops are led by our members' interests wherever possible and most are run by volunteers who would like to share their time and skills for the benefit of others. Each workshop is designed with the environment in mind. We are aiming for sustainable, low-cost, empowering workshops where everyone contributes and works together to achieve joint aims.

Everybody has a strength or something they are good at and we believe that by sharing those talents with others we can help build better communities and strengthen social networks for people who have experience of mental health distress. We want to hold workshops which nurture self-esteem, personality and character using a strengths-based approach. By focussing on what people can do and providing opportunities to master new skills in a supportive, relaxed environment, we hope we can tempt you to come along and get involved. 

We believe that our workshop certificates will also go some way towards not only recognising and rewarding the achievements of our members but that they will also act as proof of their talents, in order to fight against prejudices.

If you have experience of mental health distress, live in Cambridgeshire and would like to attend one of our workshops you can sign up and become a member via our Members page. 

We also welcome donations so that we may be able to expand the range of skills covered by our workshops and we are always seeking volunteers to help support our schemes in Cambridge. See the list below for the workshops we are currently able to offer:
