Stress af med keramik: Forbedring af mental sundhed gennem kreativitet

De-stressing with ceramics: Improving mental health through creativity

By Arta Copenhagen

Pottery is not just a creative hobby - it is also an activity that can have a positive impact on our mental health. At ARTA, we are passionate supporters of promoting well-being through artistic expression, and we believe that ceramics as a hobby can have a beneficial effect on our mental state. Here are some ways we think ceramics can improve your mental health:

  • Mindfulness and calmness: When you work with clay, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the process and be present in the moment. It creates a form of mindfulness, where worries and stress can fade into the background, and you can find peace and inner balance.

  • Stress reduction: Working with clay can be a therapeutic activity that helps reduce stress levels. The repetitive and calming motion of shaping and creating ceramics can help ward off stress and create a sense of relaxation and well-being.

  • Self-expression and self-expression: Ceramics as a hobby allows you to express your creativity and create unique works that reflect your personality and style. This form of self-expression can have a positive impact on your mental health by boosting your self-esteem and giving you a sense of fulfillment and pride.

  • Improved Concentration and Focus: Pottery requires a certain degree of concentration and focus as you have to pay attention to the details and techniques. This focused state can improve your ability to concentrate and help create a sense of flow where you lose track of time and place.

  • Community and Social Interaction: Pottery can also be a social activity where you can join the community and interact with like-minded people. It can contribute to creating new friendships, sharing knowledge and experiences and creating a sense of belonging and community.

We encourage you to discover the joy of ceramics as a hobby and experience the many benefits it can have for your mental health. At ARTA we offer workshops and courses for all levels so you can explore and develop your ceramic skills. Let's create a positive change together through creativity and ceramics!
