Pathways to Happiness Project

15th January - 25th May 2022

 Supported by Somerset Skills & Learning Community Project Grant.

Pathways to Happiness is a HEARTHSTONE Ways project created and led by artist and creative director, Luminara Florescu. Over 85 disadvantaged participants took part in workshops including The Happy Spirit Course, Making with Herbs and the Go Fund Yourself Workshop for artists and creatives.


These online and distance learning workshops were designed to encourage a sense of wellbeing and lift participants’ spirits through fun, laughter, learning new creative skills and meeting new people.
