If you are in the mood for something new? To kick start your creativity or take action towards your dreams, then I have several tantalising events in the offing.
Anyone that knows me, will appreciate my fascination with ‘stuff’. Be it tangible chattels, rubbish, sentimental objects of inheritance, or memorabilia, to be working with The Art of Waste the Groundwork Gallery is a real treat for me.
LIFE, DEBRIS AND OTHER STORIES – a one day workshop Tuesday June 6th 10-4pm
Inspired by The Art of Waste at the Groundwork Gallery, after an introduction, participants will gather together words, phrases and themes for writing. Later, investigating the contradictions surrounding our relationships with ‘stuff’, through short writing exercises we will explore our past, present and future relationship with objects. Beginning with the playthings of early development – sticks, mud, stones, paper, food – to the relentless over-acquisition and waste that home, work and family inevitably generate. Later exploring the creative possibilities for positive environmental change, through small steps, for a longer work of fiction.

Turning the Page – a Saturday workshop in Norwich designed to galvanise you into action. (Date and venue to be confirmed).
Since the Covid years I have noticed the urge for life-shifts, yet creative enthusiasm or taking a leap of faith are sometimes halted by paralysis and over-analysis. What seemed like a brilliant creative idea, career change, or business opportunity, gets bogged down by fear, indecision, lack of detail, funding, or a realistic timed plan of action. This one-day workshop featuring guest speakers will help you dig deep to transfer your specialism or talent, push through the blocks and forge a constructive plan, with clear bench-marks and timed actions to get you started. Turning the Page is for anyone seeking new possibilities, be they creative, career altering, starting a business, learning a new skill, or planning a new life elsewhere.
