100 ACTS OF CREATIVITY

So here we are, newish year, and as I write this, 20 days left in my job.  20 days left of doing what I’ve been doing for, checking my LinkedIn page…12 years!  I’ve decided I want to be more creative, learn a new set of skills and meet a whole load of new and exciting people.  I’m not from an artistic background, I currently work in finance, I don’t know what I’m doing!  But, nevertheless, I love making things and getting my hands dirty. So, I’m going for it.  This year I’m going on a creative adventure and I want you all to join me.  To set my creative spark alight and to inspire you to action I’m committing to …

100 ACTS OF CREATIVITY

…and I’m starting in March.  I make that about two makes a week, every week for the rest of the year.  I’m doing this for the pure joy of creating something, exploring new materials and hopefully giving me a whole new perspective on life.  I’ll give you some ideas of the tools and materials I’m using and provide plenty of links, so you can craft along. I will post every single one of my makes so you can see all the craft fails, cat-art-strophes, and…surprises successes?  The best feedback I’ve had so far is, “very nice, did your daughter do that?”.  My daughter is three.

So, for the those of you out there that either haven’t got the confidence to make, think it’s not for you, find it hard to know where to start, I hope to take the fear out of making and share some joy along the way. 

Also, I’ll be organising loads of pop-up events providing a safe space for making.  MAKEspaces!  Not workshops but, games, drop in sessions, experiments and self-guided play which will get you feeling more confident to explore your creativity.  If you’re interested, please get in touch or sign up on the events page.
