Love Sober presents: Create & Thrive with Sharon Walters.
October 19 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm£43.71
Join Love Sober for an afternoon of connection, conversation and creativity. Together we will explore questions of identity, mental health and sobriety.
The workshop will be divided into two parts. Firstly we will introduce our topic Creativity and Wellbeing in Sobriety when we will talk about our own journeys and how creativity has been an important tool in our sober tool kits. Creativity, play, flow and mindfulness are super important tools for wellbeing scientifically proven to boost happiness and therefore have to go in that toolkit!
Then Sharon will lead the main session: a relaxing, creative, hands-on workshop where you can get working with art and collage as she shares how imperative being sober is to both her mental health and creative practice. ‘Seeing Ourselves’ explores identity, beauty standards and race through hand-assembled collage. Using magazines and photographs she is inspired by botanical, natural beauty and urban scenes. Each collage is a reaffirmation of the right to ‘take up space’ even when you don’t see yourself.
