I am using Art Therapy in my current workplace. I’m doing art projects with the local community and this is quite beneficial. Not only is this bringing the community together, we are attempting to break a Guinness World Record for the for the longest knitted toy snake. This is great Art Therapy for everyone. We are getting Friends, Family, schools, Aged Care Facilities, Retirement Villages, Disability Organisations and many other members of the Community to participate. Using their creativity skills and ideas to contribute to knitting together 1 metre lengths of a snake body, some learning new skills and concentrating on getting each stitch sewn can allow the creativity to flow. Also getting joy out of seeing the completed piece without any worry, stress, aches or pains to enter into their mind. Art Therapy can be any form of art. Whether listening, doing or viewing something can help heal, relax and turn a negative thought into a positive thought. Although I do have a creative flair, having created paintings, drawings, jewellery pieces, scrapbooking, leadlighting, and mosaics, I have never experienced this new wool medium for myself. I’ve been in charge of this art programs for nearly 11 months and watching others get joy out of this medium I decided it was time I learnt a new skill and medium. While watching family and the community knit with wool, and watching a few clips on YouTube and Google tips I decided to invest in some knitting needles and a few balls of wool. After several attempts at this, and giving up a little. I persisted and I can knit a few basic things. I have knitted a snake piece for this Guinness World Record attempt and now as thank-you gifts to the community for participating in this wonderful event and outstanding contributions the next project is “Plant Pockets” which I am also attempting. I’ll include some pictures and any relevant links too. Learning a new skill that I am finding very therapeutic I would highly recommend to others. If not Wool, then any other form of art therapy to assist you on your journey to good heath and harmony.
