workplace wellbeing

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.

" Thank you so much for coming in to run the macrame workshop for our creative team. Absolutely everyone loved it!"

 

HTA

" We invited head & hands to come to our office to run a macramé workshop for a group of 20. We organise a different workshops every month, and everyone who attended agreed that this was definitely one of the best we’ve ever had. Amanda was so lovely and such a great teacher, always patient and encouraging. We all absolutely loved it! "

festivals & public events

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 were the perfect choice for PX+ as we were searching for an offering at our festival that would seamlessly bring the wholistic and spiritual aspects into everyday life. Head & Hands make it easy for everyone to access the tools they need to honour their self care, create and develop their rituals. Giving guests the opportunity to step away from the excitement of PX+ and practice alongside Amanda in her "Mindful Mandalas" workshop encouraged guests to turn within, enter a more meditative state of mind, helping them to recharge for the rest of their day."

Camilla Rooney, R&R, PX+ Ops Team

hens & private parties

If you’re planning a hen do, a baby shower, a full moon party, or a fun gathering, and you’re looking for guidance or something a bit different, we can help. Our events are meaningful and memorable often including nods to mindfulness, self-care rituals, creative crafts, and sharing food. So if you’re looking for something a bit more special and personal than your average baby shower or hen party, get in touch.

We have dedicated packages or we can tailor an event around specific themes and ideas. Take a look at this Mother Blessing Amanda curated for a preview and contact us if you would like to know more.

talks & interviews

Head & Hands’ founder, Amanda Wayne, was inspired to create her business following her own health and wellbeing challenges, living with a chronic illness since the age of 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.

Subjects include:

  • Starting your own lifestyle business / being a female founder

  • Living with a chronic illness / Crohn’s disease

  • Flow and creativity - using craft as a gateway to relaxation

  • Self care rituals to help promote healing

  • Workplace wellbeing - how to take care of your mental health in a 27/4 world
