Creative Self-Expression for Women
This group is for all women interested in art, healing and spirit, regardless of artistic 'ability'. Every session is specially designed to encourage you to explore your inner feelings and express yourself creatively with confidence, while also developing a sense of community and shared experience. We are a group of women who encourage each other.
We use simple methods, materials and tools developed in many cultures and our sessions honour the passing of the seasons and the legacy of women artists.
Why Healing Arts?
I developed M.E./Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and had to leave my much-loved job as a primary school teacher. Unable to do very much at all, I re-discovered arts and crafts as a source of healing and consolation. This group is my way of helping other women to find their own healing through art - now needed more than ever, as we come to terms with life under lockdown. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm online, via Zoom. Each session costs £10, with discounts for those on low income, or whose income has been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
"This is time for me!"
“I really enjoy the Healing Art Group; we meet up, have a cup of tea and a chat while doing a different art project a week. What I value most about the group is it gives me time to be creative and learn how to make new things without making a mess at home! " (nb as we are now meeting online, I can't guarantee this!)
