Event description

Description

Coming Home: A group workshop sponsored by Nettle's Tale Swimwear, where you will explore how to feel at home in the body you're already in. Facilitated by Hillary McBride therapist, author, researcher and podcast host (The Liturgists, Other People's Problems) Hillary will speak and facilitate activities and discussions about how to make peace with the skin you're in over the course of the day. Come and explore, in a safe setting, the theory and science about how to feel OK with your body, with practical skills to change your inner thoughts and cultural dialogue.

The workshop will end with a one-hour private shopping experience at the Nettle's Tale Gastown store, alongside Julia Church (Nettle's Tale owner and designer), with a generous discount for those who have attended and completed the workshop. If you are not in a place at the end of the workshop day to swimsuit shop, you can use the discount at any time in the future!

Hosted at The Juice Truck community space

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Juice Truck is located at 28 W 5th Avenue, Vancouver, BC and the the workshop will be held in their community space. This area between Main and Cambie and Broadway and 2nd Ave is full of both metered and 2 hour free parking spots. You'll probably need to plan to arrive 20 to 30 minutes early so you can park and walk to the space because you will not want to have to plug a meter during workshop hours. If transiting to the event, both the 99 B-Line along Broadway or the #3 down Main St (get off around 5th Ave) are great bus options (and connect with the Canada Line and Skytrain) or we recommend carpooling or taking an evo or car2go.

What can I bring into the event?

You will be supplied with writing utensils, stationary and all other materials of this nature needed for the event. We want you to feel like "coming home" and this is a very embodied experience, so you should feel comfortable! Bring a cozy throw, your favourite slippers, a throw pillow, or a sweater! All snacks food and beverages will be provided during workshop hours, if you have any specific allergens let us know, but food will NOT be provided during a 90min meal break that will be given around 12:30pm. You have the freedom on the break to go off on your own or with others from the workshop for your own meal break. There are many restaurants and cafes walking distance to Juice Truck that we have listed below! Or feel free to bring your own food and head to a cafe or stay in the community space and journal, reflect or read on your break.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email julia@nettlestale.com and put "coming home" in the subject line and she will happily get back to you within 48 hours about any questions or concerns.

What's the refund policy?

We are happy to fully refund you up to 48 hours after ticket purchase. If you cancel within 14 days of the event, we will give you 50% of your ticket cost back and you will be able to attend a future workshop in lieu for 50% off. Any cancellations less than 14 days prior to the event are non-refundable and you will need to either attend yourself or sell your ticket to someone else. We had a more generous refund policy on the last workshop and in the end we did end up selling out, but the number of cancelled and refunded tickets and re-sales that took place 7 to 14 days prior to the event was frustrating, so we have decided to try to the best of your ability to make sure you are committed to the event upon purchase.
