|Writing with Memory|
In our Writing workshops, we get in touch with our creative side to explore our world through written word. During a time when we may feel stuck or isolated, writing provides a platform to connect with others and discover a form of freedom through expression. Within these workshops, we explore and connect with elements of our being and discover ways to imaginatively engage with our environment.
In Writing with Memory we explore the difference between sensory memory and perceptive memory and use writing as a way to build ourselves memories of the present that we will want to keep for the future. We then look at writing memoir as a framework for constructing recent-made memories into positive or helpful narratives.

Green Workshops: Lighter workshops offering an introduction into various ways to improve wellbeing. They are accessible to anyone, encouraging self-expression and self-care. Workshops involve techniques, activities, and ways to connect with our senses, to develop a wellbeing toolkit.
Blue Workshops: More detailed workshops that focus on making positive changes to habits, behaviours and lifestyle. The workshops support you to maintain positive change or take steps towards making a change. These more structured workshops aim to provide you with helpful tools and strategies.
Pink Courses: In-depth and encouraging self-reflection, long-term planning and progression. Our courses provide an opportunity to share experiences and support each other. Courses require commitment to attend all sessions and a willingness to complete homework.
