    Cuddle workshop...

    I've just watched the BBC London news and they had a item on a new fad coming here from the USA... 'Cuddle workshops'

    24 to cuddle strangers for an hour

    Don't they know, AT and Blues is much cheaper?

    If you fancy giving it a try..

    But be warned, they look even weirder than the average dancer!

    A few years back I encountered a bunch of people in a shopping centre with placards proclaiming 'Free Hugs!'. I would have stocked up back then if I'd have known it would be 24/hour a few years later.

    Victoria Station in Manchester had free hugs going from what looked like students on Friday evening. I was on my way to the dancing and I was still tempted

    If cuddles are that important, just stick yourself a placard on a stick and stand at your local major railway station. Unless commuters aren't your thing..

    Happy days!! There is another thread where people write up their experiences of doing it... I can't seem to find it or link to it... Can anyone help? Can any of the mods even edit it and link to it??

    Do you mean this thread?

    (I didn't do anything mod-related - I think it was just a case of finding it...)

    Thanks, David. I'm kinda embarrassed I couldn't find it as I started the bloody thing!! The link kjust kept referring em to the main forum home page.

    Anyway, my thanks again... Pages 1-6 are just organiational stuff... but Cruella posts on page 6 how the actual event was for her and it goes on from there...

    Re: Cuddle workshop...

    Just been watching some of the Free Hug videos on Youtube. I want to do this again (when my back is better). It is such a rewarding experience. Does anyone still have any of the Tshirts we made for it?

    Alas our vids on YouTube got taken down by the owners.
