Wellbeing Through Making Workshops
“There is no separation between life and art. They are the same thing.” Boye Lafayette De Mente
For centuries, people have passed down important teachings about life through craft. From Egypt to Ethiopia, from Greece to Guatemala – wisdom about the mind, the body, culture and the processes of nature have been transmitted in making.
Our Wellbeing Through Making workshops connect the creation of artworks with the creation of a healthy life and community. We weave together creative practice and the creation of one’s physical, mental, emotional and social health. Our artist team are professionals in both arts and health and are able to provide workshops in a number of practices including basketry, origami, theatre, dance, textiles, photography and more!
Through making we see new possibilities…
“You create your life, and you can recreate it, too. In times of economic downturn and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to look deep inside yourself to fathom the sort of life you really want to lead and the talents and passions that can make that possible.” – Ken Robinson
