Enjoy the process, connect with new friends, share ideas and give to others, enjoy mindfulness and gentle physical activity as you learn something new. Our brain can only see what it has been prepared to see; it's vital to exercise your imagination and open your mind to new ideas.
I met Sandra at a networking event and I was immediately drawn to her wonderful personality. I always wanted to up my creativity, but I have learned that I am better with tuition, so I have joined Sandra at one of her 1 day Creative Experience Workshops which gave me an insight on how Sandra works! Signing up for the creative self discovery course was a total no-brainer.
I loved my time with this fantastic lady, the course is well structured and there is a different topic every time - and best of all, a lot is upcycling. You get some homework, which gets you into the habit of continuing your journey of self finding at home and I certainly replaced some bad habits by sitting down and colouring instead after only two sessions. Sandra gives you a lot of time and support and also gives you the freedom of implementing your own ideas. All materials are included and you do not only take 7 projects home, but several!
I consider myself as pretty self aware already but I still had several light bulb moments through this course and I highly recommend it - it will change your world! This is money very well spent and super value as you get soooooo much out of it!!

I would highly recommend this course to everyone who needs an opportunity to reward themselves and try something new.
This course is so much more than a crafting activity group and was instrumental in helping me to make some planned life changing decisions.
The 7 weeks gave me time to think and explore a much needed new perspective on my life and life choices.
It was fun to learn craft techniques and produce some work to take away.
This carefully and intelligently developed and delivered course caters for all ages and stages of individual person and supports their self action plans.
Truly unique, truly brilliant....

The course has awakened my creative side - something that I didn't even realise I had 😊. My first thought on that first session "I can't do that " - well thanks to Sandra's patience, easy style and understanding, I can now say and believe " I CAN do that".
For anyone who has lost their confidence and belief in themselves - this is for you. Sandra will help you re-discover you, she will help you find your inner peace and calm. You will lose nothing - but gain a huge amount by taking this course. Thank you Sandra xxx

I have to say I was skeptical at first - being a scientist at heart and having lost touch with my creativity and open-mindedness due to Corporate brainwashing for 20 years. I was so wrong to be skeptical. The course was well thought out, informative, thought provoking, enlightening and to be honest a complete breakthrough for me. It's obvious to me that Sandra has a lot of experience, expertise and teaching hours under her belt. I was able to get in touch with a part of my brain that was fast asleep! I had felt blocked, grey, and lacking in imagination - a dangerous place when you are starting your own business. Afterwards (after 7 weeks) I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. By tapping into different parts of my mind, beliefs, challenging my self-imposed limitations, Sandra was able to demonstrate to me (using the craft as a metaphor) that I have everything I need within myself and that I should give myself more time to be a creative thinker. More time to make mistakes and move through them and more time doing things for myself instead of just doing things for other people. Thanks Sandra!

I would definitely recommend this course! It allowed me time and creative space to focus on my needs. Through Sandra's gentle and innovative creative development teaching, you are able to access your creativity - whether or not you knew it even existed! Through the different craft projects and feeling relaxed in friendly company, I was able to finally able to identify the way forward for me! Don't hesitate - you will be pleased you signed up!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole 7 weeks of creating amazing projects. The course made me realise that I am not only able to produce some beautiful products but more importantly that I am able to take myself on a new journey in my life. Just like the beautiful products, I can create my own future. Sandra has been very friendly and supportive and made her course very relaxing and inspiring.
I would certainly recommend the course to anybody who is looking for something different and original.

A very enjoyable course in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Several interesting projects to make and lots to think about. Sandra was very patient and helpful giving everyone the time they needed with the projects. Good fun and met new people. If anyone feels stuck and doesn't know what they want to do next this course will certainly help them push through those blocks.

I would recommend this course wholeheartedly. Even if you think you haven't got a crafty bone in your body, you have and Sandra will find it.
You will have lots of fun in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere and make some lovely friends at the same time.
