"Life Journey through the Family Album"
This workshop aims to encourage individuals to explore their own
family albums or the absence of one, as stimulus for psychological

by themselves and their loved ones and reflect on their memories
and the constant flow of life, looking at their gains, losses,
happiest and most painful moments within a therapeutic context.
Using the full range of art materials including photography
and collage, participants will explore aspects of individual,
family and community identity in order to create individual life
"Coming Home - Using the Wisdom of Oz"
The workshop will encourage participants to make a journey of
'home coming' to the 'self' which will encompass personal issues,
self identity within the family and the wider community. Working
in a therapeutic context, participants will be given the
opportunity to use a wide range of art materials, puppets,
sandplay, music and story telling to find expression for their
journey back to the "self" and reflect on their journey so far,
reclaiming and retelling their personal discoveries through the
metaphor of the 'The Wisdom of Oz' which is based on the story -
'The Wizard of Oz'.
