Clay-based Wellness Workshop
As a hobbyist potter and clay worker I have often enjoyed bringing clay to my workshops. These can be wellness and recovery time for groups or teams that have experienced stress or loss. The tactile nature of clay, movement, creativity and gentle group work helps participant spend time in their bodies and with their creative selves in a way that is nuturing and soothing.
