Discover your creative thinking & problem solving skills

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)

Starts: 24th April each Thursday for 5 weeks
What’s in it for you? Tap into your inner creativity and help yourself to come up with new insights and solutions.

Guest speaker for September 2013 meet up of East London Creative Business Women Network

The East London Creative Business Women Network is ever evolving and with Petra, co-founder deciding to give it 100% to her own and deep:black projects I was a little stumped about how to harness such collaborative energy for the post Summer East London Creative Business Women Network meet up…

As luck would have it on that day I received an email from JESSICA ROSE, Award-Winning Entrepreneur and Founder of the London Jewellery School… asking if ELCBWN invited guest speakers…

And thus I had my answer and excitingly Jessica is now the guest speaker for our next gathering… phew! Creative Collaboration back into full swing again…

What you can expect from Jessica on Monday 30th September 2013…

Jessica will give an informal talk about her experience and journey in setting up a multi-award winning creative business from scratch, sharing the good, bad and everything in-between for plenty of inspiration, ideas and advice. Following this there will be a Q&A session and some creative brainstorming.
Everyone is welcome to come along no matter what stage they are at with their business bring your ideas and questions and we look forward to seeing you there. 

Book your place via http://elcbwn.eventbrite.co.uk/ we ask you pay what you can on the night to keep the events as open & inclusive as possible.

How many times do you get the invited away for the weekend for a creative playful escape and you can’t say yes as it’s just too far away and doesn’t fit with your busy schedule in town…

This is what we found when I ran Ignite Your Creativity Retreat early in 2013 – feedback from those who couldn’t make it was 3 whole days away was too much and couldn’t it just be for a couple of days to work around family and work commitments.

Read and digest a review of our March 2013 retreat – HERE

WELL HELLO!  Don’t let it be said we don’t listen to feedback – the best re-designing and finessing tool in the world, right!

So Open To Create…  Ignite Your Creativity Retreat In The City 21st – 22nd September 2013 was born – book your place

http://igniteyourcreativityinthecitysept13.eventbrite.co.uk/

With all the depth, detail and benefits of our 3 day retreat away on our magical island in Essex I have tracked down a magical oasis of calm right in the heart of East London – yeah, I know – how can that be?

Well The Royal Foundation of St. Katherine’s is just that – tranquil, deeply peaceful and grounding is powerful way whilst being in a mega position to be reached easily from all parts of London and further afield being 2 minutes walks from Limehouse Station http://www.rfsk.org.uk/about/get-here
