Led by talented, qualified art therapist, Christina Smith, participants will embark on a creative journey to paint and decorate small rocks. These rocks, known as 'pocket rocks', will be adorned with positivity and comfort, featuring vibrant colours, symbols, and uplifting words/messages. The intention behind these creations is to provide moments of solace and inspiration, to be kept close by for comfort and encouragement.

These workshops offer much more than an art session. It is an opportunity to unwind, have fun, and create meaningful connections in a nurturing and safe environment. These ‘pocket rocks’ can be colourful, and symbolic and feature positive words/messages. They can be kept close by and read or rubbed to bring comfort or even displayed in your home.

Spaces are limited, so early booking is advised. To reserve your place or for more information, please contact: Flowerfield Arts Centre: 028 7083 1400
