This is a hub of activity, where we will engage in making activities, get a chance to hear each others stories, and work together to help the battle .
here you will find workshops
links to other support avaiable in uk
tools for your toolkit.
We propose looking at the solution from a new angle.
Making is a primeval human trait. We have been making and inventing since the beginning of our existence.
How much of our day do we spend making?
Making yields incredible benefits: a time to reflect.
an awakening of the brain.
a moment to breathe.
an enticement of the senses.
a space to share an experience.
a sense of achievement.

What is an Eating Disorder?
Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses that involve disordered eating behaviour. This might mean limiting the amount of food eaten, eating very large quantities of food at once, getting rid of food eaten through unhealthy means (e.g. purging, laxative misuse, fasting, or excessive exercise), or a combination of these behaviours.
Types of eating disorders include:
Eating Disorders (EDs) can start very early, even during childhood. It is likley this person will continue to battle their Eating Disorder in secrecy throughout their teenage and adult life, possibly for decades.
Living with an Eating Disorder severely affects the livelihoods and relationships of those who have them, with drastic impacts on their mental and physical health which can go largely unnoticed and unattended.
It can take years to relearn what most people take for granted- Eating is only one habit, on top of a very long list.
Currently it is estimated 1.25 million people suffer from an Eating Disorder in the UK.
The support services available are limited, the treatment is difficult to access, with increasing pressures since lockdown, and it takes more than therapy and addressing the diet to make a change.
My ED Workshops
La Vie en Rose is a creative exploration of our journeys with our eating disorder.
We are pleased to invite 20 girls and women with EDs from across the UK, to take part in our pilot support project focused around making.
The project :
Make a pair of glasses, with a lens, or as many lenses as you would like. Each lens will tell a story- about your ED and your relationship with it, your values, your struggles and dreams.
Each lens will have a different theme.
All materials will be provided and will be delivered to you by post.
We want to inform, understand and be part of your experience. Your lenses will give us insight into what you want.
You do not have to be in formal recovery to take part.
If you are interested to take part please contact us on 07436 428316 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’d love to hear from you.
Creativity is key to empowerment.
Let’s embrace our bodies, celebrate our minds.
Find courage to solve problems, let our voices shine.
Laugh more and smile.
live love laugh
