Making a Mess SOLD OUT!!

  • We are re-running this sell out workshop as an experiential taster workshop as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts.

    What are children communicating about inner worlds through mess, slime and potions? We explore ‘mess making’, presenting case studies and exploring attachment theory through the lens of our current work with children and young people in our “Kinnections” programme. 

    This training explores ‘mess making’ in arts therapies, presenting case studies and an overview of attachment theory. Arts therapies offer a container for allowing difficult feelings to be processed through the use of materials within a therapeutic relationship. We consider family connections, through the lens of our current work with children in our Kinship Care project "Kinnections". 

    The current youth craze of making slime is also considered in relation to mess making and early years play, and participants will have the opportunity to learn creative therapeutic techniques by making their own mess.
