Class finishes at 9.30 but the bar will stay open until 10pm.
There is a limited number of tickets and they go VERY quickly.
- There will be a small booking charge of £3 per ticket (which will be put back into the charity as a donation), as a lot of people were book free tickets and don't use them - and we want all tickets to be used, as we will be trying not to let people in on the door - as we don't want to be turning people away or squishing people in - we don't like having to do that :( However, the class itself is still completely free and all materials are also free and included.
Disclaimer: This is a peer-led group developed and facilitated by volunteers with an interest in creativity and mental health to meet a need in the community. We are not trained therapists so cannot offer professional psychological support at the class, however, we are advised and supported by an accredited psychotherapist. Our team will of course be on hand for peer-support throughout the class. These classes are a social event in a light-hearted environment, so we do provide an alcohol-stocked bar at most classes, therefore, this may not be suited to people who wish to be in a serious, professional theraputic setting.
