An artist-led body image workshop
Many of us spend our lives on a permanent diet and thinking constantly about food. Some of us are struggling through life with an eating disorder. All of us are bombarded by images of ‘perfection’ and a constant stream of new diets, beauty treatments, fitness solutions and lifestyle brands that we’re encouraged to buy in order to make our lives complete and our bodies beautiful.
This new workshop aims to kick-start a conversation around all of the above. After an open discussion, you’ll explore body image through a series of creative activities designed to help reflect and connect with your bodies in a different way.
You’ll get to draw and be drawn by others, distort images of ‘perfection’ through creative collage work and meet our special guest live model, who will share her own ‘body story’ with us before posing for us to draw.
At the end of the session, the hope is that you’ll leave feeling supported, strong and ready to start the new week on a positive, butt-kicking high! Open to all aged 18+ with a maximum capacity of 15, so early booking is advised.
NB: This is not a therapist-led workshop. It will be run by a local artist who is about to embark on an ambitious body image project, which these events will form part of.
