"The core art journalling session was fascinating and inspiring. I had been feeling stressed and somewhat overwhelmed lately. I found I unwound, and relaxed. I spent another 3 hours working on it that evening and found it relaxing and completely absorbing!"
See here a sample of a collage started at last week's workshop:
SPACE is our new platform offering a range of courses and live tutors. You do have to register with the site and fill in the questionnaire please as this is part of the ongoing evaluation of the efficacy of the project.
You can do the courses any time you like and attend the Sunday meetings online currently but will be face to face later and still live streamed. You do not have to attend the Sunday meetings to access the courses but you do need to sign up to access the courses. You will need to enter your card details but the first month is free.
Paid up members then pay £5 a month and others £10. This week after the welcome and introductions Deborah porter is teaching on core art journalling and there is a list of suggested materials in the calendar. Then ling will lead a discussion on a recovery topic and then part of one of the courses. If you are intending to participate please get signed up asap and do your registration, and click this link to begin.
Do you look after or help support a family member, partner or friend because of their illness, disability or emotional distress? Do you know someone else who does this?
Many people have taken on extra care and support for a loved one since the coronavirus pandemic began. Local and national surveys have found that many in this situation have struggled with their own wellbeing – feeling isolated, frustrated, sad, worried, bored, trapped and fearful about the future.
Next week - 7-13 June is National Carers Week, an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don't think of themselves as 'carers' to access much needed support.
On Thursday 10 June, we're hosting a drop-in event on zoom. You can drop in at anytime between 4:30-6:30pm to have a chat. You'll be able to speak to someone individually, or just hear more about the kind of support we can offer.

On the above link you can also view the webinar recording of our Caring Thru Covid event, with speakers from the Hive Portsmouth, and Healthwatch Hampshire, and lots of useful information.
