This month’s workshop will be about using soft materials such as fabric, yarn, ribbon, and other malleable materials to create “nests” that can represent safety and containment. All materials will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own items to add to their sculptures including buttons, beads, small trinkets or anything they would like to weave into their nests.
*If you are able to help with set up or clean up, include “I’ll help!” with your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
and plan to arrive 30 minutes early and/or stay 30 minutes late.*
Facilitator: Kim Griffis
Kim Griffis, MA-AT has a Masters in Counseling and Art Therapy and believes in the power of expressing oneself using art materials and the process of communicating without necessarily using words.
Wherever you are in your healing journey, you can take a few more steps forward in FOV workshops. Our Founder, Joyce Aubrey has insisted that art workshops be the foundation of FOV, because creative arts were pivotal in her healing. Community Support and survivor participation has allowed FOV to provide art events for survivors for more than a decade.
