Easy ways to learn
Last week in group we talked about all the different ways in which learning new skills is great for your confidence and wellbeing. We discussed things which we could do to learn and also shared things we already do. It was a wide and varied discussion and we have many talented members who are learning to play the piano, learning to speak Japanese and a member who makes jewellery using coke cans and a 3D printer!
