Embrace your inner Wabi Sabi

See how the Japanese theory of imperfection can be embraced not only in your work but in your life to alter your approach for an ultimately life changing experience. This has been reviewed as one of the best talks ever at the Creative Craft Shows.

Crafting climate change

Exploring the relationship between making and living within the fragile environment around us and how the way we work can be adapted to be more in tune with the world. This session also looks at the way practice has changed and the habits makers have developed over the past century. Craftivism as a method of climate activism can be discussed.

Nobody (and nothing) is perfect

How wabi sabi can allow us to free up out thinking and embrace our own imperfections. This session takes us back to our roots and allows us to look deeply onto nature and realise that true beauty comes from the imperfections. In doing so it frees us up to be ourselves and relax. This makes us more peaceful, happier and in turn productive people. More in tune with the world around us and content with what we have.  

Crafting your Inner self

A process of self exploration and rediscovery. It also covers the use of alter egos in art, craft and performance as a method of self expression. A great way to find out things about yourself and you life/work that you had not considered and bring them into your everyday.


A session in using your body, posture and voice to improve your confidence. It also covers dressing and props to help display your inner self and change your demeanour. Covers the use of alter egos, masking and character play. Great for performers, team building and individuals looking to build esteem and general self confidence.

Releasing your voice

Using the power of the written word to help you find a voice for your mind. This session gives you the tools you need to start to put words onto the page and take control of the thoughts. It gives you back power and confidence. It helps you find the inner truth.
