WORKSHOPS

“We are all creators. We exist in order to be curious, to ask questions, to test theories and take risks. To create is to have courage. It’s a choice to be bold even when you feel invisible.”

– ARTISTOEXIST

 

My workshop philosophy mimics the playful collaborative nature of my studio practice. These creative studio sessions are more like play dates for adults. What these creative play dates provide are methods of channeling the curiosity and creative nudges we all have into fearless action. 

I am not an Art Educator… I am a CURIOSITY COACH.

For this reason I cringe at the term “WORKSHOP”.

Curiosity Coaching  is a teaching method that channels our internal and external observations and helps us put them into creative action. It is a way of finding our creative self in everyday living, and channeling that into our creative play.

Are you courageous enough to be curious?

MAKING MAGIC WITH COLD WAX

Learn how to channel your curiosity and creative nudges into fearless action with Oil & Cold Wax. 

Whether you are new to painting or have years of experience, oil and cold wax adds an organic and exciting element of chance to your painting journey. This full day studio session is designed to help you creatively unblock and explore process through play. 

Learn how to let go and collaborate with the medium as it guides you towards an organic array of happy accidents. A painting technique that will lead you toward a new sense of wonder and excitement on your path to creative discovery.

 

All materials and painting application tools are provided including gloves and painting substrates. I suggest bringing a sketchbook along with you so that you can document any lightbulb moments that pop up across the day.

Don’t forget to wear clothes appropriate for painting and closed in shoes.

Please Note: The cold wax techniques covered throughout this studio session require the use of odourless solvents and oil paint. Safe use and disposal of these materials will be discussed at the start of the studio session.

CREATOR DATE SUNDAY’S

Take some time to prioritise your creativity with a Creator Date. These sessions are all about creative play and learning how to have a curiosity mindset.

Need help with creative unblocking or perhaps you’re not sure how to get started?

These open studio sessions will allow you an opportunity to tap into what is of interest to you with some added creative mentorship and guidance along the way. Each Creator Date will have a theme to kick start us for the session. It’s completely up to you whether you focus on the theme or simply use the afternoon as your own creative sanctuary. 

This is a perfect opportunity to meet like minded creatives and gain insights on how to really get into the flow of process in a supportive and collaborative setting. Think of it as a Play Date for adults.

The mentorship provided on these days will be tailored to each individual. I will also be using this day as studio time for myself, which will allow us all to be channeling curiosity side by side and getting the creative juices flowing together.

Join me in the studio!

 

 

 (BYO materials) 

I will provide small painting palettes and containers for water and or solvent. We also have a drying rack and a small amount of storage should you wish to leave some materials between sessions.

Bring what makes your heart sing

A sketchbook is a great place to start. Painting materials and  substrate, inks, collage paper and drawing materials. You might also like to bring work that you have started but don’t know how to resolve. 

If you have no idea where to start I am more than happy to provide you with some basic materials to get you moving.
