ART + Mindfulness Workshops

UPDATE: DATE CHANGE: Sunday 22nd March 1pm-3.30pm (held in small groups of 5-8 people, in a clean and safe environment)  (CLICK HERE TO BOOK)


Connect. Create. Meditate.

Come and find your creative tribe.

Do something different on a Friday night. It will be a sober night to remember!

Learn the art of mindfulness while creating your own mandala drawing. Melissa will lead you through a meditation, and teach you how focusing on the moment, calming your mind, relaxing and enjoying yourself allows inspiration to flow. You will be shown how exploring mindfulness switches on the brain and unleashes your creative power! You will learn drawing techniques to find your own style, and learn the art of drawing mandalas, while staying mindful. 

During the workshop, we will be hands on, using practical ways to be more creative and learning about creative mindfulness. This workshop is not for artists - it is aimed at anyone who wants more creativity in their life.

Served with warm cacao chocolate drinks, herbal teas, cheese and fruit platters.

TESTIMONIAL: "It was a pleasure to spend this evening with this creative soul learning the art of Macrame. I hesitated to bring my girlfriend thinking it was a little outside the male comfort zone, I couldn't have been more wrong. Apparently the men get a kick out of tying knots too! So If your short on a partner (or cant coax them along) get a group of girls together, take a break from going on the drink and learn something new!" - Michael.
