If working with images is something of interest, it may be helpful to use an image to explore an issue you are working through in a different way.
There are no expectations of being an artist. Sometimes it is difficult to express feelings with words. Image work can be a non-verbal approach to understanding the self, our thoughts and feelings that may be affecting our behaviours.
Some awareness that can arise from working with an image can be:
- Embracing change
- Understanding relationship dynamics
- Finding an Inner strength and understanding of yourself
The process, not the end product is important…
Enjoy the creative process…

Processing Loss Through Art…
Loss affects us all at some time in our life, loss of a loved one, of our health, a relationship or even loss of a job.
In this experiential workshop participants will explore the value of using creative art materials to explore and process loss.
Please bring a selection of art materials, paper, pens, pencils.
What to Expect:
These workshops are made up of small groups, and take place in a fabulous open space, enabling a comfortable and creative environment. Following guided visualisations, specific to the theme of the workshop, you will be invited to put down on paper any image that came up for you in whatever way or form that is comfortable for you.
All art materials will be supplied for you to be as creative as you wish to be.
This process of creating your image, using paint, crayons, glitter, pencils, pastels – whatever you feel drawn to – is a therapeutic and mindful way to express yourself.
You will receive a CPD attendance certificate.
Physical and Mental Health:
During the workshop you will be invited to engage in sitting, meditation and creative work with art materials. The work may enable emotional engagement and healing. You will never be asked to do or share anything that you are not comfortable with, all participation is voluntary.
If you have any conditions you feel I should know about, or you have any concerns or questions about your participation, please let me know.
