Workshop Planning to include Arts Therapy with Lina B

Workshop Planning to include Arts Therapy with Lina B

I’m so lucky to be surrounded by inspiring mamas like Arts & Drama Therapist Lina, who sweetly invited me over to talk about how I could include Arts Therapy techniques into the Goodmakes textile design workshop as a way to facilitate the sharing of stories of motherhood by the participants.

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy involving the encouragement of free self-expression through painting, drawing, or modelling, used as a remedial or diagnostic activity.

Mothers experience many challenges during childbirth and raising children which they are encouraged to share in the goodmakes workshop. Applying Art Therapy techniques to structure the  workshop helps to create a safe and nurturing environment for those narratives to be shared and translated into visual symbols and motifs that can be used in the fabric design.

Many thanks to Lina for her input; I’m excited to see how the first workshop goes!
