Super+Super Creative Seasons
The idea of Super+Super Creative Seasons has evolved from my ongoing aim to do less better in life and business to allow me to share more in depth creative skills, projects and ideas with you folks AND to spend more time honing my craft as a creative/maker/designer and small biz owner. I’m excited about this new way of packaging up what I do to make it more lovely for you guys to see and share!
Over the past 5 years I have worked on some brilliant projects as a small creative business owner and also had opportunities to collaborate with like minded peers and companies to create some very special projects and workshops. Now don’t get me wrong, they don’t always go to plan, and my goodness have I learnt some lessons along the way. So I decided that this year I am going to plan my projects to fit in with the way I have come to realise I work/create and succeed the best. And that’s by looking at all my creative offerings in terms of seasons. Trying not to overload myself and leave space for things to come to me and grow naturally from what i’ve planned. Some of you may have seen my post on IG about my word of the year which this year is ‘Evolve’. Well It may sound pretty woo woo but I am going to try and embrace that this year!
So back to this creative seasons thing…
I will be running creative and crafts workshops as I always do, but this year I am going to work on really focus on skills based projects and things that have some kind of seasonal or practical relevance. Whilst re introducing more intermediate and higher level classes and courses that run over several weeks.
I want to work towards connecting people with hands on crafts and creative skills as a tool for relaxation, storytelling, overcoming social anxiety and sustainability.
It’s an exciting way for me to develop ideas and expand my own creative skills set, whilst developing in-depth / intermediate and higher level workshops which I can create along or in collaboration with other awesome peers!
I’d also love to work on some collaborative workshops & diy design based projects this year! As I mentioned on fb last week I am planning to re introduce craft diy project tutorials to the blog, eep. And I think these will follow the same kind of idea as workshops. i’d also really like to collaborate with other designer-makers here and create large scale craft based projects and events!
I am also going to get back into creating free diy craft tutorial projects for the blog that fit in with this whole creative seasons idea. This sits really well with me and feels way less daunting than trying to publish a project once a month to fit a schedule. There’ll be more to come on the blog diy side of things… as I get some ideas down!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on all of this, i’ve spoken to several creative peers recently who are really embracing the idea of seasonality in their creative process and desigs,. AND if you’d like to discuss a collaboration project for the revived diy tutorial section on the blog OR an in person project drop me an email to email@example.com
