makings & Musings

My mission is to help busy people find their creative flow though mindfulness and art.

With Makings and Musings I offer creative workshops in London. 

My classes include painting classes and drawing classes over Zoom or in-person.

I truly believe that after staring at a screen for most of the day, the best way to get out of the numbers and into a more holistic mindset is making something with your hands. Painting for me is the perfect stress relief and by focusing on what you are making in the moment you  can forget to worry about everything else that you may have going on for a while. 

I found however, that many people do not use their creativity because they believe they are 'not creative'. Part of my mission is to prove to these people that everyone is creative! Children are naturally drawn to making things and the only reason we lose our creativity as adults is because we tell ourselves that we have.

We are currently running all our workshops online over live stream or to watch back as recordings.

All online classes will be freely available to all as part of the Makings and Musings gift economy.

You are invited to make a voluntary donation if the class was of value to you.

If you would like to know more about why I decided to run classes on a gifting basis - head over to this blogpost where I explain why a gift economy feels right for Makings and Musings at the moment.

what our creatives say:

"The class was hugely enjoyable and informative. The teacher was very clear and helpful. I learnt much more than I had anticipated and came away with two paintings which I was pleasantly surprised at how they looked. The venue is above a pub and the room had a peaceful and cosy feel. Very suited to learning. I will definitely be going again."

"This was a fun and inspiring class - all materials were provided, along with plenty of inspiration, and no experience is necessary. I hadn't painted since school, but before I knew it Irene had me blending colours and creating a work I could be proud of.
