Recent compelling research shows that spending time creatively and engaging with nature can alleviate anxiety and low moods. Emma Mitchell combines the two practices in her gorgeous new book, bringing readers a unique way to take care of their wellbeing.

Each of the eighteen crafts in Made Well, from planting a succulent garden to intricate drawing techniques, has been specifically designed to improve mental health. Whether you need to lift your mood, halt the worry loop or simply relax and recharge, there’s a craft in this book that will help you do it. Step-by-step instructions and beautiful illustrations and photographs shot at Emma’s cottage in the Fens take you through each project, making it perfect for beginners and seasoned crafters alike.

Calling on the latest science and explaining how each project can help in terms of its impact upon your brain and body chemistry, Made Well shows just how powerful getting out into nature and spending time creatively can be.
