About the experience

Experience Duration : 2 hrs
Experience Summary:

This 2-hour 2:1 interactive creative experience provides the Two of You with a unique opportunity to use an art-making process as a way to connect with your special being on a deeper level. This creative, often fun, experience allows you both to free your creative voices, loosen the tension, and exchange true feelings via symbols and visual language rather than ordinary words.

Detailed description:

What the experience would look like?

We would start with an informal chat with a cup of tea to find out a bit more about both of you and your interests/intentions. This would help me to connect with you on both mental and spiritual levels. I then would suggest an art material that I feel could be relevant to take you on a totally tailored art journey. It could involve (but is not limited to) intuitive drawing, painting, collage, mixing colours, playing with materials, creative writing, photography etc. We are all different and I choose tools and mediums to work with by intuition only while channeling creative energy on the day.

Who is this session for?

This session would suit a couple as a romantic gift on a special occasion. It can also be an opportunity to create a meaningful connection between two friends, family members, or business partners. Whoever you choose to bring in, the main focus of this creative workshop is to dedicate time to each other by using art as a tool to communicate on a deeper level that can be difficult to reach in our otherwise busy world.

What would we create as a result of this experience?

It is unlikely that you would create a masterpiece straight away but that is not what we aim for at all. We would rather focus on true expression and emotional exchange between you two using the art-making process as a way to do so. The outcome of this unique experience can occur in a form of collaborative artwork or a series of visual experiments to help you to better understand each other’s feelings and shine the way to create a stronger bond.

What is included in the price?

Price is calculated based on the Artist’s union rates covering the time and expertise required for creative education. All materials are included too. There is also a welcome drink provided on arrival.

What are the requirements?

All that is needed - is your curiosity, open mind, and willingness to trust the process. You don’t need any previous creative experience to take a part. Do not worry at all if your English is not fluent - we will top it up with the visual language instead. Just bring yourself and your Chosen One to my art studio.

About the host

I am an Edinburgh-based visual artist, researcher, and creative educator. Linking my background in Behavioural Science, Contemporary Art Practice, and curiosity in Contemporary spirituality, I express my own emotional realities while exploring the limits that people have to create a better everyday reality. I work across notions of time, memory, materiality, decay, and connection with a range of media including found materials, installation, photography, painting, printmaking, and moving image.

I regularly lead creative projects for displaced communities across Scotland. I strongly believe in art as a powerful tool that we can use to drive social change, rebuild trust, and infuse optimism into our ordinary lives. My cultural collaborations with Edinburgh Ukrainian Community Centre, Art in Healthcare, Scottish National Galleries, Edinburgh Royal Lyceum Theatre, Volunteer Edinburgh, and Life with Art brought numerous community art projects to life.

I also facilitate bespoke creative experiences and classes for individuals to help them discover creative voices, empower them for changes, and support challenging transitions in life.
