After the lockdown I felt very isolated and finding it difficult to relate to others. Coming to Mindful Art Club has helped me feel reconnected with others.

I think for me it’s been about social engagement. I suffer with isolation and having something to go to on a Monday morning gives me something to get up for.

Course participant

It has been incredibly valuable to come together in a safe space of non-judgement, acceptance and creativity. A gentle and compassionate approach. It has helped me knowing that I have somewhere to be when I have been struggling with confidence and motivation.
