I am developing a series of workshops to help you and your team to step away from the screen and start using your hands and minds in a different way - from navigating by the stars to ceramics and embroidery. These practical masterclasses will help you unlock your creative potential and will be delivered in combination with some psychological education on topics such as stress management, resilience, leadership and wellbeing.
Workshops start from 2 hours right up to a full day and can be tailored to suit the needs of your people. Discounted or pro bono workshops can be negotiated for not-for-profit organisations. Further workshop ideas and information can be found below. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal chat.
Half Day / Full Day options
Do you want to find your team or organisational story? By combining reflective practice with physical documentation - a collaboration of photographs, memories and reflections - this workshop can help you find your story and present it in a way that you can proudly display on your walls or website.
This workshop is about connection, people, recollections, feelings and the future. You will be asked to provide memories, mementos, photographs and achievements from your team or organisation in order for the event to work successfully.
Full Day Workshop
Would you like to spend a morning (or afternoon) compiling your own bits and pieces into an embroidered banner that represents your team or organisation?
Banners don't have to signify protest. Embroidered banners have been used for years by organisations to identify themselves during marches and display their aspirations - they were even used as a means of advertising the benefits of membership to trade unions. During this workshop, your team will create a banner slogan or manifesto headline to be embroidered onto a wall hanging which you can take away* to display in your workspace.
No prior needlework experience is necessary. Please bring materials and ideas to this workshop e.g. branded t-shirts, former promotional materials, the kitchen tea towel... anything that has significance for your team or organisation. We can make your banner in your brand colours or monochrome - a design consultation will take place before the workshop.
*Depending on the skill of the participants, some parts of the banner may need to be finished after the workshop and the finished piece will then be sent back to the team.
