First responder men, join us for a resin side table workshop! Due to popular demand, this workshop is a great opportunity for first responder men to support each other, and grow your creative skills. A great introduction to resin crafting, you will learn how to mix, colour and pour resin to create a resin decorated tray/side table that you can keep or gift! We will use heat and pigments to create awesome resin art on your table and you will learn everything you need to know to create at home after the class. Plus it’s a great way to connect with other local first responder families, as well as strengthen bonds if you choose to bring someone from your family or kinship group. Connection is an important part of the path to mental fitness, and can take a protective role in maintaining wellbeing.
Mindfulness, promoted through creative processes like craft, is a great way to gain perspective, increase resilience, and reduces stress. Being in the present moment has a range of benefits in building mental fitness including greater self-awareness, building adaptive capabilities, and helping to seek help when needed. Learning new things also boosts self-confidence and provides a sense of purpose.
This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (check eligibility). All materials, tuition and a refreshment on arrival are included. Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly.
