Patricia is a teacher turned activist, entrepreneur, public speaker and mum who is passionate about Zero Waste. She began Zero Quest with the aim of educating and enriching her community through projects, talks, workshops and networking events. Through her talks she aims to inspire and move you to embrace more sustainable lifestyle choices, give you the road map and guide you through the most effective, tried and tested sustainable solutions to everyday living as well as giving you the shortcuts, the tips and the hacks.
The student is invited into the space for every kind of personal creative enquiry.
The art studio is also used as a space to explore emotional literacy.
Self discovery is often amplified through the use of arts and crafts and the imagination.
Art is its own champion of both emotional health and healing. We see art as a complementary process to psychotherapy, this is why Dove Studios is also used by people who wish to complement their therapeutic process.
The toy library and two Kalffian sandplay boxes are available for this purpose.
We offer a weekend course for art therapists-in-training, in how to deepen their range and experience, through exploring the variety of materials in the art studio.
