How Not to Cut Your Ear Off: Art, creativity and mental wellbeing

From GBP 20.00



Nov 26 2023 13:00 - 15:00


How Not to Cut Your Ear Off: - An artists story and hands on study in to the positive effects of art and creativity on mental well-being and health, whilst keeping both your ears.

Hosted by: Katrina Adams

Duration: 120 mins

Cost: £20

In allowing space for engagement and connection, this talk, and workshop are an opportunity for participants to focus on dedicating time to introspection, personal growth and wellbeing through the creative process of art and mark making.

Katrina will lead by example and tell her own (sometimes darkly amusing) story through sharing artwork created whilst on a therapeutic journey in response to a crisis in her own mental health. Dedicated time will be included in the workshop for individuals to create and reflect on the process and take home their creations and the tools that they used to produce them.

• Introduction to art therapy through Katrina’s storytelling

• Ask Katrina any questions.

• Facilitated discussion around the art process rather than the ‘end result’.

• Looking and reflecting on natural objects

• Create a personal response to the objects using Indian Inks on canvas board.

• Facilitated opportunity to share artwork and reflect on the outcome of the exercise.

• Participants can take away the canvas boards and the natural objects.

This workshop is designed to be informative and creative only and is not a therapy or counselling session.

Owing to the subject matter and contents of Katrina's story, this event will contain themes that some may find upsetting; including mental health, death, suicide and hospitalisation.

*All welcome, no matter how many ears you have.

This workshop is part of The London Illustration Fair 2023 (24 - 26 Nov). Tickets to the event must be bought separately.


Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, SE1 9PH London
