Prepare for Winter with Reinvigorating Art.
As winter approaches, the cold weather and lack of daylight can leave us all feeling drained. Creativity can be a powerful tool to work through this exhaustion and restore yourself.
In this workshop you will be introduced to creative ways and techniques designed to help you to relax, relieve body and mind tension, and feel calmer and more focused. These skills are things you can do in your own home, ideal for building into your everyday life.
You will participate in visual exercises, interacting with the elements and natural materials such as water, soil, wood, and plants. With this as your foundation, you will be guided through the art-making process, activating your senses to stir your inner creative flow and disconnecting from distractions in the world around you.
What to Expect
As an outcome of this workshop, you will be equipped with a few easy-to-access playful creative practices that you can take away to positively impact your overall health and well-being.
This will allow you to connect with your true feelings and a state of ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’ which is essential to support your body, mind and soul in the Autumn.
The price for this class includes all materials. £3 from your ticket will subsidise a ticket for a displaced participant to have a chance to join us on the day.
Two half-price scholarships are available. Please send us an email describing your circumstances in a couple of sentences and we will be happy to support you (scholarships are available on first come-first serve basis).
