imperfect workshops for the creatively curious

Everyone is born creative

But it's an instinct that gets crushed in so many people, often at school. Little kids love to draw, but by high school so many kids have decided that they can't draw. 

 

The tighter people hold onto their perfectionism, the more their work becomes stiff and brittle and unoriginal. It's hard to create if your inner critic is hissing in your ear all the time.

 

I've designed my imperfect workshops to loosen and lighten you up, to rid you of the demon of perfectionism that's squatting on your shoulder.

LookDrawPrint and Alter-Ego are hands-on experiences for the creatively curious, where I teach how to embrace chance and imperfection and focus on process.

My workshops gently ease you back into a more forgiving mindset, allow to you to experience flow and to create something uniquely yours, made with your own hands.

Imperfect workshops are about creative recovery

Some of my LookDrawPrint workshops happen in Sydney and some are held further afield. Over the years I've taught all over the country - at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Koskela and North Sydney Community Centre in Sydney, Ministry of Handmade in Brisbane, Armidale Regional Gallery, Grampians Texture at Halls Gap and a wee church hall in Coonamble. 

In 2019 I'm focussing on running most of my workshops onsite at my Rough Track Workshop in the Blue Mountains, but there'll still be some others around the country, so keep an eye out.
