Make my Valentine workshop at @mmu_cheshire > All welcome, staff and students! Join us ;)

Staff and students are warmly invited to a unique Wellbeing workshop with our very own Gail Spencer on the 14th of February 12-2 pm in Seeley 0.20 to immerse themselves into creative making activities using clay and other materials, for relaxation and regeneration of our minds and bodies. We decided to combine this with our monthly GooglePlusLogo#creativeHE meetup to open-it up to colleagues and students around the region.

Come along with your ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

Get inspired by others!

Create something unique for you and a loved one.

We would like this to be the first in a series of workshops to come together more regularly and co-create an artwork that reflects our lives on the Cheshire campus. Come along to explore future workshops together.

After the workshop

Our fifth meetup took place at the ManMet campus in Cheshire. It was on Valentine’s day and it was a makers workshop. Gail Spencer immersed us into a range of creative activities using printmaking, clay, handmade paper, sewing. It was a wonderful experience and very relaxing. We all had the chance to immerse ourselves in making art through which we demonstrated our love, love to create and also started exploring how art could create stimulating learning and teaching experiences. There is so much potential to use art- and making-based learning approaches to create hands-on immersive learning experiences that help us express in creative ways.
