In pursuit of our support for all creatives, the Guild runs an extensive number of workshops for all those seeking to connect with their own innate creativity. All our workshops are artist lead and small, we take a maximum of 10 enrolments to give participants the opportunity to let their creative juices flow whilst connecting with some newfound friends around our Guild table!

Our hope is that when you leave our home; that whatever you purchased will be not just your new favourite thing but it will still be your favourite in 10 years’ time; the experience you had and what you created in the workshop at the Guild will leave you talking about how nourished and inspired you feel with your friends, and what you learned in your coaching session empowers you and your business, so much so that even your competitors are talking about your businesses success!
