...and in my case a few paintbrushes!
This time last year I was handing over my first commission, thinking 'yep, it'd be quite nice to make a go of this,,,and today I have been viewing art studios and potential workshop venues in some of the most creative little communities that would be an absolute dream to be part of!
So, as you may have guessed, I am planning to add another string to the CREATIVE GINGER bow, in the form of: 'CREATIVE JUICES' painting workshops.
For this to take shape I need SPACE...
I have spent the last two days visiting creative spaces around London and I have LOVED it. I feel so at home in these sort of environments, wanting to just make myself comfortable at a desk and get CREATING!
At the moment I am still very much in the research stage, viewing studios, workshops and venues to work out what's achievable now, and what will form part of the long term plan!
I am particularly interested in 'THE TRUNK ROOM'- a space which can be hired on an ad-hoc basis and used for a variety of events. Located in Elephant and Castle, it is nestled within a social hub of colour, culture and creativity called 'THE ARTWORKS ELEPHANT', and instantly felt like the perfect location to host painting workshops.
THE ARTWORKS ELEPHANT
I studied at London College of Communication, just around the corner from The Artworks and I felt strangely at home strolling through the market to find this 'VIBRANT VILLAGE', that I didn't even know existed.
So to sign off I'd like to offer a splash of CREATIVE GINGER motivation: keep going with whatever it is you want to achieve, however big or small. I know it won't happen over night but I do know determination and a dedication to the goal is key!
