I was lucky enough to attend one of the Carers’ TLC sessions at the Hub on the Green earlier this week and what fun it was.
Nina Fenner was there teaching us how to make beautiful handmade books. I made a concertina book with pockets and pictures from a ruined book as covers. Rather sweet for a first attempt if I say so but there were some beautiful books made by others and Nina’s example box was full of stunning works of art.
Nina holds regular sessions at the Hub if you would like to make your own books.
There was lots of tea, cakes and chat and most importantly, support for those who care for others.
The sessions are supported by Devon Carers and provide a vital chance for carers to take a break.
These regular meetings include craft and pampering sessions and operate on a drop in basis on Monday afternoons.
