For at-risk and vulnerable youths, our art-based workshops provide a safe space for addressing self-identity and trauma through opportunities to communicate by visual and hands-on methods. In September 2018, we conducted a two-day plaster cast workshop for a class of 26 students at Sengkang Green Primary School in partnership with the school's counsellor. Participants between the ages of 9 and 12 casted replicas of their hands alongside their peers. Linking themes of social wellbeing and mental health, the workshop conveyed the importance of hands as tools to interact with loved ones and the world around us. The objectives of the workshop were to provide alternate visual and practical methods of self-expression and communication as well as introduce the technical skill of casting. The workshop received 93% positive feedback from the students.
