About the event

Make & Create E17 is an inclusive, original project, led by a creative GP with a special interest in mental health.  The project aims to remove barriers to creativity, encourage human connection and seeks to help people with mental health issues use creativity as a way of improving their mental well being.

In this special event, which takes place as part of the E17 Art Trail, we will be offering a variety of project boxes which can be completed either at the event, or taken home to complete.  

Make and Create project boxes contain high quality art materials and detailed, hand illustrated instructions, which allow attendees to complete a creative project of their choosing.   The projects are specifically curated by me, to invoke a feeling of calmness and joy when completing them.  The boxes range from macrame and origami projects, to colourful flower crowns and statement jewellery pieces.

Creativity is not about talent. It is about doing. It is about courage. It is about absorbing yourself in something outside yourself.  A form of meditation.  

Through Make and Create workshops, I want to teach people alternative techniques to manage anxiety and depression, by using their hands and minds to create not ruminate.

Come along and absorb yourself in a creative project.  We can't wait to meet you.
