Workshops

Inject 3 months of Creativity into your work

7-week courses
to help you "Get on with it!"


Seven fun 2-hour workshops led by Michelle that help get you out of your comfort zone and get out there to explore your edges, and get on with the creative work that really matters to you.

A Stimulating Journey...

Going on an adventure with a group is often lively! Armed with our ‘Passports’, Tickets and Postcards to send from the Artists Adventures card deck, we set out for different 'destinations' each week. The journey is often fun and full of stories as we journey through these themed weeks together.

Ready to Explore?

Everyone is doing different creative work - we have singers, writers, artists, photographers, gardeners, makers, musicians and entrepreneurs starting new businesses - and everyone is encouraged to take a creative risk every week.

Challenge Yourself

This makes it more fun, challenging and spontaneous - you never quite know how it will pan out during the week because other people are in the mix. As a group, we can support and keep each other accountable, but we’re also there to provoke and prod (inspiration and a push!).

Listen...

It's not compulsory to share your stories through the journey, but it's amazing when people do - I'm always totally inspired by how awesome people are! It only goes to confirm my belief that we are all creative by nature, and when you make space and time to nurture this, the results are truly incredible.

Get on with it then!

Your Life, Your Vision


What can you see? 

  • Life patterns, habits, repetitions
  • Heroes, role models, and their patterns and values
  • Your vision of personal success
