About the course

Clay is a very powerful malleable resource within therapy and counselling which can bring about a transformative effect within the psyche. Working with Clay offers non-verbal channels for self-expression and self awareness through the tactile sensory experience of being with clay. Eileen had the privilege of undertaking research offering clay to children who presented with Oppositional Defiant Behaviours, the outcome of engaging with clay for each child was phenomenal.
This workshop offers participants theoretical and experiential learning using the media of clay.

Bring your own lunch. Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided.
