This is the very best of being able to create the work I love and share what gets me super excited in Life… with community members from East London and beyond…
Creative Thinking is a course I’ve written to encourage you re-discover the senses of touching, feeling, hearing, tasting and seeing your world in new and exciting ways.
How cool to be able to cook up over 10 hours worth of playful games, exercises and assignments for those of you curious about re-finding that inner creative child who used to be able to play so freely and without boundaries.
As we ‘grow’ up we sometimes forget to release our inner joy at the everyday.
And to face into what can sometimes seem like insurmountable problems with the joy de vivre of the wide eyed, stars in their hands innocent…
Care to take yourself on a journey of re-discovery, playful exploration and lighthearted thinking about the deeper questions we have in Life?
Creative Thinking 5 week course (C2404)
