I work from a lived-experience of anxiety and I have a background of working professionally in the arts which I bring to my work with clients. I love to engage creatively with others and I would love to find resources and opportunities to help others fulfil their creative endeavours.</p><p><strong><strong>What do I need to do?</strong></strong></p><p>Bring your craft project or creative project or even your homework (Chloe will be bringing one of her hundreds of half finished knitting projects). Whatever you are working on, come and work on it together or present it to the group and ask for encouragement or feedback.</p><p>If you can never finish or find the time for your art project, this is for you!</p><p>If you get writers block this is for you!</p><p>If you're too nervous to meet people in person-this is for you!</p><p>If you have a cool art project and don't know how to get feedback beyond your own parents-this is for you!</p><p><br></p><p>This 4 week trial is completely free to attend, but please reserve your space.</p><p>For more information on Chloe check out her links:</p><p>www.havingayarn.org</p><p>hello@havingayarn.org</p><p>@hellohavingayarn</p><p>@douzeymuse</p><p>@allsfairteam</p><p>@soundqualitypodcast</p><p><br></p><p><br></p></div></div>
