CONJURING CREATIVITY

Updated: May 14

A six part art club based on creative play & sketch-booking for joy. Inspired by fantasy, folklore & witchcraft.



“You’ve always had the power, my dear. You just had to learn it for yourself.” —The Wizard of Oz

Kirstie and I both possess a profound appreciation for the realms of fantasy and fiction, often integrating these themes as sources of inspiration within our respective artistic endeavours. Our fascination lies in the enigmatic allure and magical essence inherent in the exploration of the unknown, which serves as a powerful medium for narrative expression.


Motivated by this shared passion, we have curated a series of workshops that pay homage to these themes, seamlessly intertwining them with the liberating escapism inherent in both creativity and the natural world. While our vision may exude an air of whimsy, the foundation of our initiative rests upon the pragmatic application of creativity as a catalyst for fostering positivity and joy, thereby nurturing mental well-being through the augmentation of neurotransmitters associated with happiness.


Throughout each session, participants will embark on a guided voyage through the pages of their sketchbooks, as we impart techniques for channeling creativity as a means of transcendence and offer novel perspectives on deriving solace from the embrace of nature. Within our nurturing environment, devoid of judgment, individuals are invited to explore and express themselves freely, fostering a sense of relaxation and camaraderie as they embark on this transformative journey.
