In this experimental arts-based workshop participants will draw upon their innate creativity and artistic skills, using a simple method inspired by creative arts therapies, to generate symbolic doll-like figures that represent participants' wishes, dreams, and inner desires. This guided workshop is open to all, regardless of previous artistic experience with the aim to foster a sense of well-being, connection to self, creativity, and joy. Please join us for an interesting evening!
