Creative Workshops to Support the Wellbeing of Staff
A programme of creative workshops designed by our professional visual artists to support the wellbeing of your team members. We’ll deliver workshops at a time that suits you, at a venue of your choice, and we’ll provide all equipment and materials too. Most workshops run for between 60 and 90 minutes, with the full programmes ranging from three to ten successive sessions.
The programme focus is on becoming involved in the creative process rather than on a final product. Our artists understand some of the fears and doubts people may have when they first take part and are skilled in facilitation and encouraging creativity. Sessions are tailored to the interests of the group and participants are encouraged to explore and experiment with different art techniques, so individual workshops might include painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery making and more.
A tailored programme of art workshops provides a great opportunity to bring individuals from different teams and departments together to try something new. We know from workshops we’ve previously delivered that they can also support the development of stronger and more communicative teams, especially when individuals working at different levels within an organisation participate alongside each other. The workshop environment also provides a safe space for individuals to experiment, to explore different approaches and to acknowledge strengths and weaknesses, with dedicated space provided for reflection and relaxation away from busy and stressful workloads.
We have successfully delivered similar programmes of creative workshops with a range of partners including BTO Solicitors and the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership.
