Happy Places In Our Minds
Mixed Media with Iona Leishman - The workshops will explore what makes you feel warm and happy.
It could be a beloved animal or person, a beautiful woodland, a loch, mountains or a sunset. It doesn't matter what it is, it's the feeling that counts!
Using mixed media acrylic paint, charcoal, pastel, collage and ink we will work on canvas at the easel or flat work on the table and really go for the colours that warm us inside. Perfect for January and February weather!
As preparation, please bring a photograph(s) of your Happy Place to work from or, if you prefer not to have this prompt, it can be absolutely from your own heart that you paint.
Tuesday 28th January & 4th, 11th, 18th February

Moving to Heal
Nia Moving to Heal is 'Movement as Medicine'. Classes are designed for everybody with long- or short-term healing goals: these can include recovery from injury or surgery; depression; Parkinson's or any other movement challenge; or those experiencing chronic illness. "Healing", as defined by Nia, is described simply by "I feel better". Moving to Heal focuses on slowing down, connecting to the present moment, and building a loving connection with your 'now' body, connecting to JOY. Chairs will be provided, if required.
