Course Facilitators

Lorella, Practitioner – It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or a complete beginner. The focus of this course is not on teaching traditional art skills, but on relieving mental stress and finding alternative ways to self-soothe. Even in such a short course, there is a magic that happens when people learn and create together. It’s fantastic to see how quickly people get to grips with using art for the benefit of their wellbeing. This course will give you a starting point to embed creativity in your life.

Simone, Co-Facilitator – I enrolled onto this course because I was looking for something that would help me get through my anxiety of being in groups. It was just what I needed. I learnt to relax and let go of thoughts that didn’t serve a purpose and it got me away from all my usual worries. It’s worth trying because the art is not intimidating in any way, just give it a go and I will be there to help you through!
