Text in image: Body Puzzle: A body image workshop to get people talking about, questioning and deconstructing media & cultural messages about beauty, weight & bodies. The workshop aims to provide participants with positive ways to challenge and counter the body hatred & negative messages that surround us. The workshop will end with a bit of body positive creativity.

All welcome. However, the Body Puzzle workshop will be a safe space and we ask that participants show respect for both those running the workshop and those attending. We hope to see you there!

All proceeds to the Art House: £3.50

Hampshire Feminist Collective are hosting our first official event. A Body Image Workshop. We all have a complicated relationship with ourselves. Our culture teaches us particular things about bodies; why not explore how this affects you? Sometimes it’s impossible to love yourself and connect with your body; issues surrounding gender, race and disability make this difficult ground to cover. Why not attend and gain some support to negotiate this bodied existence?

The workshop is open to everyone, you don’t have to identify as a feminist to attend. So why not come along and meet us?  It should be a good afternoon.

All proceeds go to the Art House, a community run, not for profit venue.

RSVP on Eventbrite or on Facebook to let us if you’re planning on attending. Hopefully we will see you there!
