About the Event
Pocket Pals help when you’re feeling big emotions that make you feel uncomfortable.
There are lots of ways to use your little mate...
Just before you go to sleep you can chat to it about anything that might be worrying you, then pop your little Pal under your pillow. You might find that whatever was bothering you doesn’t feel so big in the morning.
If you’re feeling a bit anxious, your Pocket Pal is always there for you. Reach into your pocket and there it is.
You can tell your Pal about things that concern you so, together, you can start to process how you feel, and maybe that will help you feel more calm. Talking through the things that worry you helps you to understand them better and your little mate is there to help.
With your Pocket Pal in your hand or your pocket, you can travel anywhere your imagination wants to take you and discover the story you want to have for your one wild, wonderful, extraordinary life.
...so what can you expect?
Located at my beautiful studio in Wonga Park or Wonga Paradise, as I like to call it, overlooking the picturesque Yarra Valley, this needle felting workshop is the perfect way to help you and/or your child find a fun and creative way to manage anxiety. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to needle felt your very own pocket pal.
Needle felting is a therapeutic art form that can help reduce stress and anxiety, and it's a great way for people to express themselves in a positive and constructive way. You and/or your child will have the opportunity to create a unique and personalised doll that can be carried with you wherever they go, providing comfort and support whenever you need it.
You'll be guided through the entire process, from choosing materials and learning the basics of needle felting, to creating your very own pocket pal doll.
This workshop is designed for anyone from ages 10-110, and no previous needle felting experience is necessary. All materials will be provided, and everyone will take home their own completed pocket pal doll at the end of the workshop.
This unique and empowering experience for you and/or your child will give you the tools needed to manage anxiety and emotions in a positive and creative way.
The physical location of the Workshop will be provided on booking.
