Sole Searching by Melbourne-based creative studio Practice Studio Practice was a workshop held at MPavilion where participants created reflexology matts. The event examined the affects and benefits that architecture, texture and design can have on one’s wellbeing.

Whilst a rock in your shoe can be an infuriating tick, the restorative power of a rock under foot is widely practised. Reflexologists and PSP suggest that applying pressure to certain areas of the foot can target maladies of vital organs and improve one’s general well being.

Through a strategic and thoughtful application of embellishments, Sole Searching participants will create segments of a modern day reflexology path. In it’s own way, each contribution to the path will explore the physical and architectural implications of walkable design. Flat footed thinking will be set aside for an open forum of creative practice and the traditional principles of reflexology.

Sole Searchers were encouraged to take their special segment of the reflexology path home after the workshop for continued embellishment and healing.
