Creative Wellbeing Workshop: Introducing Therapeutic Arts

4 May 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Creative Wellbeing Workshop

Thursday 4 May 2023 10:00 – 13:00


About the event

Therapeutic Arts offer a dynamic approach, working with a range of art forms. These enable expression of our inner world , and can get to the heart of our feelings and experiences without depending on words. They can enable a shift in focus, new possibilities and ways forward. Being creative is healing in itself and here we explore, with curiosity, how to use the arts more deeply.

This three-hour, experiential workshop will introduce this approach through 2 mediums – paint and clay. No artistic or therapy experience necessary, just a willingness to have a go and explore. This is an introductory workshop rather than an Art Therapy group session.

The workshop is facilitated by Steffie’s Arts Space. Steffie is a Therapeutic Arts Practitioner and experienced facilitator.

Here’s some feedback from a previous participant: ‘Safe reflective space, eye opening, heart warming’.


What you will learn

  • How the arts can be used therapeutically as well as for wellbeing
  • How and why different media, such as paint and clay, are used
  • Through participation, how the arts can enable expression of our inner world

Is this workshop for me?

If you are interested in personal development, and are curious about how the arts can be used to explore ourselves more deeply, you will hopefully find this workshop enjoyable and meaningful. All those age 16 + welcome.
