Cullinan Studio has been busy over the last month collaborating with the charity, Body & Soul, to provide their members with a rewarding programme of 'Cullinan Creative Collection' events. The sessions have been a welcome retreat from the dark winter evenings, with lively Tuesday crafting. We have enjoyed guiding members to create beautifully constructed collages, colourfully woven woollen macramé and poignantly worded Japanese Haiku poetry.
Body & Soul is an innovative charity that uses a comprehensive, community-based and trauma informed approach to address the life-threatening effects of childhood adversity in people of all ages. They use a whole-person approach to health and wellbeing, identifying the most difficult aspects of their lives and taking steps to resolve these issues whilst nurturing the practical, social and psychological factors that will protect them in the future and build their resiliency, creating a positive environment for their members to flourish - creativity is an important element in their therapeutic approach and they strongly believe that a creative community is beneficial in managing trauma.
Taking place at Body & Soul's therapy space, the purpose of our sessions have been to provide a space for members to come each week and connect through creativity, grow and heal as they take their own unique journey.
We are proud to have collaborated with Body & Soul and look forward to supporting them with further creative adventures in the future.
