Whittling it Down and Connecting with Nature

Ray of Light offer a weekly whittling group from beginners to advanced. Our sessions with Becky cover looking at the best carving tools to use, learn how to master the basic wood carving cuts and learn completely new skills.

Whittling can work like meditation to help to clear your mind of stressful thoughts and focus on making small things of beauty in a relaxed and supportive environment. It supports mindfulness techniques and can improve concentration. It is evidenced that it can help reduce your blood pressure and heart rate which are both signs that our body is stressed. Carving wood can help to ground us and reconnect with nature, which can be very therapeutic when some aspects of life are feeling out of control.

All of our sessions are free and for anyone affected by cancer. You just need some warm clothes, there’s even shelter if it rains.
We will be located at Cynon Valley Organic Adventures, entrance is at Abercynon Sports Centre just off the A470 held Thursday’s 10.30am until 1pm (refreshments supplied)
Please let us know in advance if you would like to join us.
