The Creative Way Workshop Series

Craft and Creativity Workshops.

Recharge your creativity. Experiment, play, create. Let Melissa guide you in discovering your innate creativity. Everyone is creative! 

Through a series of specially-designed workshops, Melissa will share different ways to express your hidden talents. Her focus is on you. As a passionate artist and teacher, she will help you unleash your unique creativity - this is where the magic happens! During each workshop, we will be hands on, using practical ways to be more creative and learning about creative mindfulness. This workshop is not for artists - it is aimed at anyone who wants more creativity in their life. You can book in for an individual workshop or come along to all 4 sessions for the ultimate creative experience.

Workshop One - "Weaving, Macrame Knotting & Tying Your Creativity" 

Let's turn on our creativity, through circle weaving, macrame knotting and fabric tying. Choose your own project that matches your unique expression. It's time to play and create with our hands.

Saturday 21st October 1.30pm - 4pm 

Workshop Two - "Gather, Hunt, Collect, Create" 

Play with feathers, leather, driftwood, shells, sea-glass, and other collected bits to create dreamcatchers, feather wall hangings, leather bags, warrior sticks, and so much more. This is an intuitive-style workshop where Melissa will guide you to complete your individual piece. This class allows you to let yourself be in the moment and create as you go.

DATE: Sunday 24th September 1pm - 3.30pm

Workshop Three - "Gardening For the Soul" 

We will use plants and natural materials to create woven shapes, mini terrarium gardens and other organic forms. There will be a beautiful range of elements, hand-picked from nature. Melissa will show you that to create a daily reminder to stay grounded, present and creativity fulfilled.

DATE: Sunday 1st October 1pm - 3.30pm

Workshop Four - "Mandalas & Mindfulness" 

Start off with all kinds of mandalas: painted, drawn and threaded. Melissa will teach you how focusing on the moment, relaxing and enjoying yourself, allows inspiration to flow. You will be shown how exploring mindfulness switches on the brain and your buried creative power.
