You'll be surprised to find the memory in your hands

With the pace of life becoming more fast and furious, it's important to take some time to escape the rat race and focus on ourselves, even if only for a short time. During this self-nurturing workshop, participants spend a relaxing day indulging in some "me time", getting creative and enjoying the art of self expression.

All materials needed for this class are supplied, although I'd recommend taking an apron as things can get a bit messy! Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided and each workshop member is asked to bring a plate to share for lunch.

Starting out small ......


Susan Margaret leads the small group through this clay sculpting workshop, encouraging potential sculptors to express themselves freely and to allow their emotional memory to bring their ball of clay to life by expressing unspoken feelings or thoughts.

A work in progress


One of the great things about this workshop is that you don't need to be artistically talented or able to create the so-called "perfect piece". The end results of working the clay are as unique as the participants, making the big reveal at the end of the afternoon very interesting. Your take-home masterpiece from this workshop will be a life-sized head, full of expression and with a message to tell ...

Even those of us who sometimes wonder where our memory has gone will be amazed to find just how much emotional memory we carry in our hands! To go into more detail about this fun workshop would spoil the element of surprise that I enjoyed so much but suffice to say you'll share a few laughs! Whilst my creations from the morning session were less than inspirational, the journey was fun and although doubting my capacity to create that life-sized head, I totally surprised myself with the end result and so will you.

Yours to take home


Susan is a joy to spend time with and gently encourages group members to connect with the clay through their own inner awareness. Whilst focussing so intently on the job at hand, all life's stresses are temporarily forgotten and you can't help but smile as you leave the Relaxation Centre with a smile on your face and your head held protectively in your hands!
