The two-day workshop is suitable for people who have experienced mental and emotional distress, families and supporters, mental health and community workers, doctors and therapists, and anyone who would like to better support people who have experienced mental and emotional distress. The purpose of the workshops is to teach participants how to make 3 kinds of fused glass pendants; from start to finish, as a salable product. Participants will also be taught how to use Market Taxi to raise funds for consumer run projects; and ways of using creativity to cope with emotional distress and symptoms which have been shown to improve people’s relationships with their experiences and feel more empowered.
