Exploring the Senses Through Art – when we don’t need to talk

With Michelle Redgrave-Moore

Sensory perception forms the basis of your relationship with yourself, your surroundings and the people around you. We will use a variety of art media and techniques to explore our senses in a holistic way, such as felting, touch drawing, painting to music, etc.

This workshop may be of interest to those working in care or therapeutically with children, special needs and the elderly.

No previous artistic experience is required for you to learn and adapt ideas for the area in which you’re working or caring for someone.

Michelle is a Qualified Therapeutic Arts Counsellor & Creative Arts Facilitator working with children and adults and passionate about making creativity accessible in her community.


Expressive Portrait Painting – who is behind the face?

With Helen Vallantine

Friday 24 – Sunday 26 July 2020, 10am-4pm
Cost: £170.00

This workshop will provide an opportunity to explore portrait painting in an expressive way using oil paint. We will work on canvases providing the scope for experimental mark making. Starting with a true likeness of the portrait you have chosen you will then be encouraged to explore and discover fresh and potentially liberating ways of applying paint and using colour. All abilities welcome!

Helen currently runs painting and drawing classes and practises arts in therapy for Street Talk and in a local school.

‘Whose Story Is It Anyway?’ – How to work with Story Therapeutically – CPD

With Asta Jakobsdottir

Monday 27 – Wednesday 29 July 2020, 10am-4pm
Cost: £170.00

We all know a story. We ourselves are all bundles of stories whether it be the stories of our innermost experiences, our parents, land, folklore or other. During this course we explore the magic and revelations of stories in images.  These images may lead to other stories being born and told. This may allow therapeutic access to another more subconscious level of understanding stories, even the ones we already know. This course is for therapists and other professionals working with clients.

Asta Jakbosdottir is a graduate of Tobias School of Art and Therapy, arts counsellor, massage therapist and tutor.
