Music for Wellbeing: Chinese Flute and Free Flow Drawing

About Music for Wellbeing: Chinese Flute and Free Flow Drawing

This is a wellbeing workshop we designed to relax your mind. We believe making arts that responds to music can facilitate mindfulness, and encourage emotional expression. We would like to bring this unique experience to you through beautiful melody of bamboo flute.

The bamboo flute is a traditional instrument made out of a single piece of bamboo, and it’s most widely known as an instrument of Chinese music. The music played on bamboo flutes is often called ethereal, calming, and peaceful.

Participants will join us for a mind journey from China to Scotland through guided relaxation and imaginary technique. Our workshop leader will play several songs using flute during the workshop, and participants will make free flow drawings that reflect the music you hear. The session will be delivered in a slow and relaxing pace, and there will time for reflection too.

List of songs:
Set 1: 姑苏行 - Journey to Guzu
Set 2: Will You Go Lassie Go/Loch Lomond/Will Ye No Come Back Again

What participants need to prepare:
• A few drawing tools of your choice (e.g. pens/pencils/sharpies/colouring pencils)
• White paper for drawing
• Quiet space during the session
• Flat surface for drawing

Target Participants: Adults (Age 18 and above)
Language: English
