Event description

Description

Beside Myself, Inside and Alongside

Come and craft your pain in this gentle making workshop where you will create, and use as inspiration, objects that represent and capture your experiences of pain.

Using the therapeutic notion of describing pain with colour, form and shape (a notion taken from Gestalt psychology) and concepts developed by artist Richard Serra this workshop is for anyone who has an ongoing or recollected experience of pain - from the pain of a bad headache to a more persistent pain. Plus, researchers, health or care practitioners wishing to extend their practice, and anyone with an interest in making or crafting.

Led by University of Bristol researchers Sue Porter and Ann Rippin and artist Davina Kirkpatrick.
