Head & Hands’ work is about exploring the intersection between mindfulness and creativity, using craft as a gateway to relaxation. We’ve delivered office workshops across the UK, from large companies to small startups, whether as a regular session as part of a workplace wellbeing programme or an annual team exercise.
Are you looking for interesting ways to promote mental and physical wellbeing in your workplace? We can help to:
Bring staff together through team activities that enable them to embrace their creativity in a calm setting
Create a supportive environment for your staff, where they feel valued and nurtured
Empower staff to practice office mindfulness
Our signature workshops include creating macrame plant hangers, tapestry weaving, ‘tassel & chill’ and ‘mindful mandalas’. Download our info pack here.
If you have something else in mind, we have a large network of practitioners we can draw upon to create a bespoke workshop.
We have a rich programme of conscious craft workshops which are a great way of entertaining adults, families and children at festivals and events. Aimed at fusing tranquility and creativity, they help to activate and enliven a space with colour and craft.
We are proud to have collaborated with:
Head & Hands’ founder, Amanda Wayne, was inspired to create her business following her own health and wellbeing challenges, having lived with a chronic illness since age 16. When battles with Crohn’s Disease meant she could no longer make the 9 to 5 work, she was forced to slow down and make time for self care. In doing so, she discovered ‘the art of slowing down’. Her previous work in design and community arts education inspired her to set about sharing this through her curated store and programme of workshops.
Amanda is available to speak at events, on podcasts, or in the media.
