A journal allows us a personal, unique storytelling space, in which into its pages pour insights, thoughts, reflections and documented response to our selves, people and place, life events, experiences and journeys. The freedom in which to work within the pages, allows other creative forms of expression and endless possibilities to be revealed.
Creative Journaling workshops allow us to explore this process with others in order to unlock inspiration, insight, personal/professional development and mindful creative direction, in setting of artist's studio, gallery, museum or your own home.
