The workshop was really good fun and I could not recommend it enough.

H R at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital

I enjoyed learning new things about schools of art, ‘playing’ with collage, complete distraction from everyday stresses. It was perfect. I very much enjoyed the session and the facilitator was gentle, encouraging, reassuring and interesting.


After a stressful, busy, no stop day at work, and a stressful time in my life also, it was perfect to sit and do something I would never normally do, and to use my hands and a part of my brain that I miss using


It is a great thing you give to staff. You can lose yourself in the moment.


It was a safe space to be creative, I could relax without worrying that I wasn’t doing something right.


I enjoyed the atmosphere of excitement during it and pride at the end of it for completing a poem! It was very inspiring


It was a good session and well presented. I would recommend it for all staff as it helps to destress, be creative, gives you new ideas and knowledge.


Can I say I thoroughly enjoyed the session, it took me off to another place, it helped me feel happy and less stressed
