I am an experienced craft potter, having run my own studio for many years, and also have been the potter-in-residence in the Tallaght Community Arts Centre. I am also a fully qualified and accredited psychotherapist, which gives me my awareness of the benefits of Mindfulness in the context of tactile experience.
Participants will enjoy a hands-on experience of working with clay in a relaxed friendly environment. The goal is to explore the therapeutic quality of handling clay as a tactile experience without the obligation of producing a work of art. So this experience is suitable for people who have never handled clay before, and also more experienced artists.
Bring a notebook and pen, or whatever you use to capture happy thoughts!
Don't forget, bring a notebook and a pen.
The venue will be in the converted choir-loft of one of the most historic buildings in Bray, Co. Wicklow. Currently used as a fully functioning community church, this building, completed in 1609, also hosts many artistic and social activities.
