(Re)Discover a playful and restorative art form. From one off workshops to 4 week courses, we'll guide you through mastering the skills and integrating them into a practice of self care. These courses are currently online, and can cater for a range of accessibility needs.
Who's it for?
Press Play is a 4 week course for anyone in the community that would like to bring a little bit of play and creativity back into their lives, as part of a commitment to mental wellbeing. In some courses, we include a little kit of materials!
This is a small group course of play and creative exploration. We add some content about how each practice can support your wellbeing, but it is not a support group program. It's for everyone and anyone in the community, from across Australia!
"Michele is an amazing teacher! I felt so lucky, like having my own little stitching circle I could join each week, from my lounge, and in my pyjamas! So cosy, supportive, and I learnt heaps. I'm now a total stitching nerd!" - Malai, Melbourne, Stitching Course Participant
Your creative facilitator is a professional artist and takes you through four weeks to develop skills and technique in a creative practice, alongside a few tools and ways to reflect on how this practice assists in keeping our mental health strong.
