On Saturday 30th July I ran a workshop with PAPERArts called The Guide to Painted Plant Pots, which is part of The Mind Over Matter series. It's a series of workshops to encourage creativity and self care awareness.
Lize was unable to make it this month as she was drawing on the windows of Lush Bristol to help raise money for our workshops we run with OTR and spread some ghosite love!
I have 'baby brain' at the moment as I'm currently growing a tiny human, so this workshop wasn't as organised as I would've liked, but I did get there in the end!! Thanks to everyone for your patience and to Sad Ghost Volunteer Brendan for helping me out on the day.
The more workshops we've been doing, the more materials we've accumulated, so we had lots to go around.
We had a few returning faces at this workshop and lots of new faces. We've made some lovely friends through doing this, so thank you so much for the support!
It was lovely to see Bethany from Doll Hospital Journal who painted a beautiful plant pot.
There's a variety of individuals that attend our workshops, with a wide range of experience in using their creativity. We want to encourage people to explore their creative side and make sure they go home with something they're proud of, no matter what they're crafting knowledge!
As well as painting plant pots we made some wild flower seed bombs, which they could either plant in their newly decorated pot or plant elsewhere.
Here's some of the plant pots made at the workshop! It's rare we get photos of what people have made because we get too into the workshop and forget to take photos, but this time I made sure to get a few snaps.
Our next workshop for Mind Over Matter is Positive Postcards on the 27th August. I'll write a lil blog post about that soon. Click to book a space!!
