If you identify with one or more of the following, this workshop series is for you..

The blocked creative - you’ve been staring at the blank screen, page or canvas and the uncertainty of your project is blocking what you most want to express and share.

The one who's wading - you're in the thick of the messy middle, your project feels stalled and you're beginning to doubt why you even started in the first place.

The reluctant creative - you've collected some supplies, but they're gathering dust while you wait for the perfect time to get started.

The one with the creative craving - maybe it's all screens and keyboards and all you want is to make something, anything.

The creative in hibernating - you left all creative pursuits behind in school and are ready to come out of hibernation.

There’s a time and a place for hacks and efficiencies, but not when it comes to our creative process.

Our creative process is all of the steps in between brainstorming an idea through to finished project. When we honour our process we have the opportunity to really connect with creativity and our curiosity and it puts us in a position to make our best work.  

Honouring our creative process gives us a framework to come back to whether we’re feeling stuck or ready to begin a new project.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important to have a creative process for your work and how to reconnect with it
  • Experiments and tools to enhance and refocus your own creative process
  • A framework to apply to your next project

Creativity is messy. I invite you to join this workshop and explore how we can spend more time embracing that fact and less time trying to hack it.

Workshop registration is FREE....BUT..there's a catch..well not a catch, more like a confirmation of your commitment..

So you've started your project, sorted out the behind the scenes details and you launched it to the world. But now the shiny newness of your idea has started to wear off. AND maybe you've hit a detour or two along the way. Finding yourself stuck somewhere in the....MESSY MIDDLE.

The messy middle is where the daunting reality of uncertainty sets in and where your initial spark or inspiration has faded just a little. It can be a confusing, frustrating and lets face it a bit (okay REALLY) scary.

BUT there's also opportunity here. Opportunity to experiment, get curious and embrace the messiness of the whole creative process. This messy middle requires extra imagination.

If you've been wading through the messy middle and need some imagination and to get reconnected to your curiosity and creativity, I invite you to join me for this workshop.

In the workshop you'll participate in experiments to reconnect you with your creativity and be introduced to tools to support you in problem solving and developing your curiosity. And Ultimately it will give yourself the space, time and new perspective you cultivate the extra imagination needed to see your project through to completion.

Painting a Picture with Words - Does yours need a fresh coat?
When it comes to your business or creative project, writing is so much more than just words. They’re an opportunity, an invitation a chance to connect. 

When it comes to your website, social media content, blog or newsletter, your words serve as the welcome mat, the handshake or hug and beginning of your relationship with that customer, client or community member.

Your words are what connect your idea, project, service or product with the people who are craving and searching for it.

We’ve all had that feeling of frustration staring at the blinking cursor or blank page. Wishing, hoping and crossing our fingers that the words come out.

Whether you’re just starting out and don’t know where to begin or if you’ve been feeling stuck when it comes to writing content and copy this workshop is for you. 

In this workshop we’ll take your thoughts, ideas and scribbles and apply them to a series of writing experiments and exercises. You’ll leave with tips, resources and copy you’ve created, so you can paint a picture with words that leads to more connections.

Workshop registration is FREE....BUT..there's a catch..well not a catch, more like a confirmation of your commitment....
