Rooting into Place

Mirfield Community Centre, Water Royd Lane, Mirfield, WF14 9SG

Wellbeing tools

Come along and join us for this amazing four week creative course where, together we will explore what it means to connect to a place – and ourselves.  Through stories, folklore, art, foraging and a variety of other means we hope to create a sense of belonging and a more meaningful relationship with the place we call home, our wider community and the landscape.  Throughout this course and with the help and support of our wonderful Peer Worker, Hannah-May, we will learn about long-forgotten myths and folklore, identify locally grown plants and their many uses and beneficial qualities, produce our own inks and paints using natural resources such as earth and rock and to use these to create our own colourful, expressive story through mark making and mindful drawing activities.

To discover the inspiration for this course, please read Hannah-May’s blog here: In Search of Roots – Calderdale and Kirklees Recovery College (

For learners who have completed this course, please check out our brand-new course ‘Deeper Roots’ which explores this topic in more detail.
