" I would recommend Wild and Kind to anyone who has an idea they aren’t quite sure how to lift off the ground, who is looking for an inclusive environment where their ideas and creativity will be nurtured and where their designs will be produced with ethics in mind."

"Very natural no barriers, open and welcoming from the 1st moment we met.  They made me feel so relaxed talking to them removing all anxiousness I had been feeling and no question was a silly question. I felt in a safe and comfortable environment."

“I struggle to make friends and I have social anxiety along with other mental health problems. I had seen the wild & kind facebook and was always too scared to go. I emailed them and they told me to come in early before the class so that I could get to know them first. I was terrified but I’m so glad I went. Normally I just stay in and watch telly on my own, but I’ve made a few friends there and I look forward to every class.”

" They create a very safe, understanding, and inclusive space, an approach which is unique and makes a huge difference to individuals like myself, who balance creative work with mental health issues."

"Wild & Kind helped me by providing an environment in which I felt safe and confident enough to try new things with my hands in front of others despite having dyspraxia - a condition which has previously made me feel embarrassed and too uncomfortable to try crafts in front of others."

"Wild and Kind are unique in their willingness to share every bit of their expertise, which is extensive and diverse. They were able to use their knowledge of Glasgow, and the people and creative businesses that operate within it, to help with every problem that I had – either themselves or by referring me to someone they knew. In fact by working with them, I hope that I’ve begun an on-going relationship."

“I never thought that I would be in a position where I would actually be able to leave the job that has been making me miserable for the last 3 years. I have been drawing in and painting in my spare time, but I thought I would need to go to art school to make that a career. I can’t afford to go back to uni, but after coming to a day at wild and kind I have started making Etsy and already have sold one of my paintings. My confidence is through the roof and I’m now looking forward to something for a change”
