The Art of Wellbeing is a project that has been buzzing around in my mind for many years, a creative café offering art and craft workshops, relaxation classes and wellbeing sessions to help those who are stressed, overworked, overwhelmed or just looking for something to distract themselves from the everyday grind.
Aimed at both men and women, particularly those who are struggling with day to day mental health due to their work, family commitments, or hormonal stresses caused by menopause, post natal depression or PMS.
The aim is to eventually have a dedicated creative space, but in the meantime, we have realised that the Art of Wellbeing Creative Café can be run as a pop-up roadshow, visiting village halls, arts venues and even outdoor spaces to offer workshops and events as needed.
Using an holistic approach to wellbeing, taking the whole mind and body into consideration, the sessions will be designed for all the senses, we will provide tutored workshops and drop in craft sessions for all abilities.
The world is becoming a much more stressful place and we aim to help people to find something that allows them a bit of 'me' time, where they can relax, create something new, enjoy a cuppa and have conversations with a group of like-minded adults, also looking for an escape, for a couple of hours at a time.
We aim to have our first workshops up and running by Easter and your support would be amazing to help us to get there!
In the meantime we are looking at producing The Art of Wellbeing publication to help to promote the workshops, roadshows, markets and feature the work of other artisans in the area.
