Holiday Facilitators: Sarah Desmarais

skill, experience, warmth


Sarah Livingstone Desmarais is a textile designer maker, arts facilitator, crafts researcher and psychotherapist.  She produces hand-printed textiles using the traditional techniques of Japanese katazome, and drawing from nature is at the heart of her creative practice.  As a psychotherapist, she is particularly interested in mindfulness-based approaches and in therapeutic writing and making.  Her interests are combined in her research and writing about arts for health, most recently with University of the Arts London, Middlesex University and University College London.  She currently supervises doctoral research into manual creativity and wellbeing at the Royal College of Art.
