Think Purple Workshops
3 workshop over he next couple of months . details below
THE ART OF MINDFULNESS
Come and enjoy a relaxing morning of meditation and mindfulness creating colourful intuitive art using paint and pastels.
This workshop is designed for total beginners that wish to explore their own individual creativity (and yes we all have it within us).
The workshop requires zero skill and is not about learning great technique. You will have a whole lot of fun with paint and other art materials.
This is a workshop designed for the only purpose of practising mindfulness through the processes of art.
Finding time to explore our imaginations while using our higher faculty of creativity is essential for our Health and well being.
I will show you how to switch off your busy chatty mind by learning an active meditation while playing with paint.
I am only concerned about “the journey of art making” (the PROCESS) not the final destination (THE PRODUCT). This is all about how much fun we can all have with paint, chalk pastels and oil pastels.
You will have the freedom to create without any pressure to perform or feel you need to create great masterpieces.
This mindful workshop is about practising present moment thinking and enjoying the freedom of using beautiful colours to explore your inner world.
The studio will be filled with the sound of beautiful piano and guitar music, as we drift off into the mindfulness and active meditation of right brain intuitive art making.
This is a workshop which will teach you how to let go of the control, Stop the perfectionism you may have and to relish in the beauty of letting yourself be led by your heart and intuition.
This workshop brings about an active meditative state where it is my hope you will drift off and switch off for a few hours, and leave feeling relaxed and re charged.
This therapeutic art process will allow you to open yourself up to new discoveries and unexpected surprises about yourself.
Please do not be afraid to step into a new world of art ,especially if you are someone who’s heart stops when it is suggested, and you allow your ego left hand logical brain to answer back to the suggestion with gafaws and laughter at the absurd idea of it all .
WE ARE ALL CREATIVE no ones was born with out it and there is not one of us that cannot say they didn’t enjoy drawing and colouring in as a child.
so please come and play it will unlock a whole new world of self love and self awareness.

PAINT AND PLAY TOGETHER
Without doubt the best thing that has come out of opening up THINK PURPLE, is the connection and unique bond I have created with my 12 year old daughter Winny.
We spend so much quality time together messing about with all kinds of art. whether it be craft, sewing, crochet or painting and drawing.
I am so blessed to be able to spend this time with her.
It has also been a time when i have been able to truly connect with her and talk about anything that might be happening in her life that she may need to get off her chest.
So I would like to invite anyone who would love to spend some one on one time with their most precious person, in a loving and creative environment. it doesn’t matter how old your kids are whether they are 6 or 16 i can guarantee they will love doing this with you!!!!
I know that my daughter has always loved it when i spent time messing about with arts and crafts with her. it’s always been such a nurturing and special bonding time with each other. And we get to share so many things with each other.
So here is what We do at these workshops
The best times we have had together in the studio, are the times we have spent creating a big abstract canvas art paintings together.
So how about it?
Would you love to come and play at the studio , with your child while painting a MASSIVE box canvas together?
This isn’t just for the mums i have had Dads creating amazing memories with their sons and daughters and i have also had grandparents with grand kids and aunties/uncles with nieces and nephews. the combinations go on and on lol
it can be as abstract as you like or maybe you can bring along a picture of what you would like to paint together. (now remember we need to let go of the control lol and let splashes and paint strokes happen at will.)
