It was wonderful to have the opportunity to create some art after a stressful day at work. It helped me relax, put things into perspective, and helped me reflect on how I’ve been feeling. Everyone should try this!

Macmillan Matron

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.

Well-being Counselling Service Manager, Trafford General Hospital

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.

Medical Technical Officer, Audiology ORC

It was great to take some time out and be creative. It’s something that I’ve really missed!! and making time to do this activity was so beneficial. I came away from the session feeling recharged and just feeling really positive. I really enjoyed it!!
