About the course……

Wellness with clay is a course that teaches you basic pottery hand building techniques such as pinch pots, slab building and coil pots in a supportive, safe, creative environment. A different skill will be taught each week (1-3) with glazing of your pieces taking place on week 4. Clay is a very tactile medium and is well known for its therapeutic benefits.  Creativity is an excellent coping skill that can be used to manage anxiety, depression, bereavement and mental health diagnosis. The sessions will start with a briefing with Lee then you will be guided through working on a clay project with Melanie. At the end of the session, there will be an opportunity to talk about any thoughts that came up for you whilst working on your project.

Please note that the focus for this course is Mental WELLNESS in a creative way that supports authentic care for your wellbeing. They are not intended to be one on one psychotherapy sessions.

Please note you must not be in crisis if you wish to attend this class.
