I am struggling with my wellbeing and mental health – how are you able to support me?
It is important that people look after their own wellbeing in lots of different ways that include physical activity, yoga, mindfulness exercises and creativity. In this class we will be drawing upon memories that have positive associations to create our artwork. The resulting artwork will provide a memory aid about a time when we felt strong, supported and happy. The intention of this workshop is that the tools within this activity can be used in different moments and contexts to continue to support wellbeing beyond this workshop, and as part of your wider wellbeing practice.
Are the contents of the kit environmentally friendly?
The Wellbeing Zine-making Kit includes handmade papers, sustainable wood tools and recycled and reusable materials!
