  • Use the art making process as a way to self-soothe, a coping strategy and explore body acceptance/neutrality

  • Make your own body-positive ceramic sculpture (very suitable for beginners and non-creatives)

  • Connect with like-minded community and rediscover play for mental health

  • Non-judgemental space and size-inclusive

  • No art experience or talent needed

  • All materials supplied

Part 2 - Importancy of Peer Support (1 hour)

  • Group discussion led by Fat Activist Danielle Galvin

  • Informal discussion about Body Positivity and personal body image

  • Importancy of peer support in body positive spaces online and in real life

  • Information regarding the value of connecting with community online and in real life
