Make a Turkish Lamp workshop

Creating a Turkish lamp is not only rewarding as an art form, but many also find it therapeutic, soothing, and stress-reducing. The motions and movements involved create a relaxed repetitive. This activity is a great opportunity to connect with the online family recovery community. For this activity, no prior crafting experience or knowledge is required.

This activity is designed to introduce Mates to a new craft or passion and provide an opportunity to make new friends with similar interests.

The Monday session will be held from 1:00pm – 3:00pm and the Wednesday session will be held from 1:00pm – 2:30pm.

This activity will be held in person and is available to inducted Mates4Mates members. This activity will have a limited capacity, so if you would like to take part, you must complete an EOI. 

If you are not an inducted Mates4Mates member and would like to take part, simply complete your Mates4Mates application online and our team will be in touch soon.

Important note:

We ask that anyone who is unwell or displaying flu-like symptoms remain at home for the safety of all Mates and staff members.

All face-to-face Mates4Mates activities will require you to:

  • Follow social distancing guidelines of 1.5m, maintain good hand hygiene and follow instructions provided to you.
  • Ensure you are complying with health directives outlined by the current Government guidelines.
