I am a jewellery designer-maker based at Wasps – Perth Creative Exchange and I have a strong interest in how creativity helps and supports mental health and general wellbeing. Art empowers people to stay in the present moment, to release anxiety, and to develop a sense of achievement. I strongly believe that everyone is creative, and this creativity needs to be nourished. Being creative allows us to find a safe space to express, relax, exercise manual and motor skills and reach a general wellbeing in the body, mind and soul.
I offer a range of jewellery and silversmithing workshops working with metal, wax and eco-friendly alternative materials. No previous knowledge or experience is necessary. Attending Scotland’s Mental Health First Aid course and a workshop with SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) has provided me with relevant experience and training in mental health.
