Hugs and Cuddle Workshop
First off, a disclaimer, we are not trained therapists and we acknowledge that the workshop may be triggering. We are there to make the space as safe as possible for you and you can choose which activities you’d like to join in and those you don’t. Everything is done with consent and we will be teaching about healthy boundaries and saying no.
The workshop will involve hugs, laughter, cuddles, massage and other plutonic healing touch. There is a recommended donation of £10 on the day seven concessions or five in advance, however if you can’t afford to pay you’re welcome to come for free we won’t tell anyone the way for lack of funds.
