About this Event
Therapeutic Arts offer a dynamic approach, working with a range of art forms. These enable expression of our inner world , getting to the heart of our feelings and experiences without depending on words. For anyone interested in personal development, or who is feeling stuck or considering counselling, it can enable insights, new possibilities and ways forward.
This two-hour interactive in-person workshop will introduce this approach through exploring the theme of restriction and freedom. This can be interpreted in many different ways such as in relation to the COVID pandemic, health, work, retirement or a relationship.
No artistic experience is necessary, just a willingness to have a go. If you'd like a fun but meaningful space, this workshop is for you. All those age 16 + welcome.
The workshop space is a lovely light and well ventilated room adjoining Coffee Cranks Cafe, in the heart of Alexandra Park (https://coffeecrankscoop.org.uk/). All art materials and hot drinks (fresh coffee and a range of teas, milk alternatives available) will be provided. Participants will also be able to get 10% off food/drink in the cafe beforehand (vegetarian, lots of vegan and gluten free options).
Here's what a participant from a previous workshop said: 'It was such a lovely, safe , creative space to be in. I was initially wary about the visual art aspect as I'm not an artist, but Steffie is a sensitive, empathetic facilitator and made it so much fun to work in a very non judgmental space'.
Tickets on pay-what-you-can basis, suggested £10 - 25. 10% will be donated to local Chorlton charity 'Reach Out to the Community'.
The same workshop is also being offered FREE online on Monday 13th September 2021, also as part of Chorlton Arts Festival: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/creative-online-workshop-introducing-therapeutic-arts-tickets-165031133563.
The workshop is facilitated by Steffie's Arts Space. Steffie is a Therapeutic Arts Practitioner and experienced facilitator. See www.steffiesarts.com.
