Event description

Description

NOT A MOTHER, NOW WHAT...

This workshop will combine both art-making and conversation on the topic of NOT becoming a mother...whether by choice, or having found yourself unable to have a child (for any reason). Now what.

Please note that this particular date is for those that are "post-decision" ...Motherhood is no longer an option that you're considering (or able to consider). For those who feel more connected with a "pre-decision" scenario, and are looking for support around grappling with that decision ...please see my MAYBE PROBABLY NOT A MOTHER group.

This is going to become a regular thing ...with ongoing (drop-in) dates ...for regular support, conversation, creative processing, and ongoing opportunities to meet other women who are looking for support around this sometimes VERY difficult, and always VERY big decision.

Choosing to not have a child is a legitimate choice.
And you may feel alone, but you're not.

"Some people try to imagine what it's like to not have children - and they imagine themselves without children, instead of picturing a person they might never be. They project their own potential sadness over not having this experience on those who don't want it at all. A person who can't understand why someone doesn't want children only has to locate their feelings for children, and imagine that desire directed somewhere else - to a life that is just as filled with hope, purpose, futurity and care." - excerpt from Sheila Heti's book Motherhood


PUNCH CARDS

If you have purchased a 5-workshop bundle (punch card) please use your personal code when registering which will make pre-registration free for each workshop that you're attending while your "punch card" is still valid. Purchasing a punch card will give you a discounted rate ($175/5 workshops), see my website at www.heyshauna.com/art-therapy for more details.


ART THERAPY

Creativity is a way that we can live, imagine, understand, and create change in our lives.

Creativity begins before we have art materials in our hands; it begins with personal and collective agency, with the decision(s) that we make to seek community, support, and space. It feels important to describe and recognize creativity as more than an art-related process, but also a way that we can live, imagine, understand, and create change in our lives.

NO EXPERIENCE WITH ART OR ART MATERIALS IS NEEDED.


PLEASE NOTE

When registering for one of my workshops you will be automatically added to my Hey Shauna Art Therapy mailing list. But you can opt out at any time!


MORE INFO

Everyone is welcome at my workshops, and you needn’t have ANY experience with art or art materials to attend.

I say everyone in a broad sense …though it is worth noting that my workshops are for adults, and not children. If you’d like to book a special family or mixed-age group I’m happy to design something for you, let’s chat!

Groups are small, usually 5 people. They are also generous, warm, and supportive. We sit and create together for a couple of hours – it’s easily among my favourite things.

In all of my workshops, our focus is on exploring different art materials in lots of different ways …and noticing how those different materials and processes make us feel. And while I am there for any technical assistance you may need, our goal is not to focus on technical skill…but instead on curiosity.


REGISTRATION & CANCELLATION

REGISTRATION: Pre-registration is required before attending a workshop as the groups are small.

CANCELLATION: You have up to 3 days prior to the workshop date to receive a full refund, though registration IS transferrable if you’d like to gift your spot to someone – please just let me know in advance. ALSO, I’m a reasonable person, if you find yourself unable to attend and the thought of losing your registration fee is at all debilitating, please get in touch with me.
