Women at the Bella Centre have been learning how to make jewellery in regular classes with one of our community partners.

The classes, run by Stephanie Graham, a professional jewellery designer and the CEO and founder of Dundee Community Craft, teach participants new skills whilst also promoting recovery and supporting their mental health and wellbeing.

The classes are designed in line with Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT) Standard 6, which offers the women low level intervention to help them deal with trauma and recovery through craft and mindfulness.

Stephanie said: “Getting to work in the Bella Centre, and within SPS walls, has been one of the most eye-opening experiences in my life - the Bella centre is beautiful.
“I’m at Bella to teach the women skills and encourage creativity, but through the hours of engagement I get with them, they teach me so much too.”

One of the participants said: “I have found skills that I never knew I had. I think it’s therapeutic and helps my mental health.
