Book yourself and your employees onto these bespoke, inclusive art workshops where no experience or artistic brilliance is necessary.

Staff can enter a safe environment of enjoyable expression to explore the therapeutic benefits of art, as a way of releasing the tensions and stresses of their busy working lives.

Laughter, relaxation, creativity and mindful art practice are the order of the day.

We are aware that NHS staff, collectively have enormous responsibilities on a daily basis. Added to this health-workers work in the area of care, empathy and compassion: a big demand, particularly when it is clear that they are under greater pressure than ever before.

 According to The Clinical Services Journal ‘66% of those working in healthcare reported suffering from significant levels of work-related stress' (2018)

There is a fast-developing body of scientific research detailing the significant, positive impact of art practice on mental health and wellbeing. 

 

Art offers a dynamic, inclusive range of activities to deal with this and allows the brain to produce happy hormones that help release stress. 

Stella delivers a unique set of workshops that will offer employees an opportunity to step away from these pressures and create art in a fun and supportive environment. 

In a study measuring the body's main stress hormone... 'cortisol levels were lowered after art making for approximately 75% of the sample.' Girija KaimalKendra Ray, and Juan Muniz
