Saviours of the Lost Arts

If you are in Brisbane over the next couple of weeks try to get along to Saviours of the Lost Arts.

It is a workshops series run by the Brisbane City Council which focuses on arts & crafts for seniors, young & emerging craft workers, and professional artisans.

The seriers features make & takes, craft demonstrations and panel discussions around a variety of issues. Some of our very own BrisStylers (from my BrisStyle group) will be presenting!!

There are day time, night time and weekend activities so there should be something you can get along to….

Another big highlight (which I am really looking forward to) is the Craft Fair in King George Square. It is on Tuesday 1st June from 10-6pm. There will be lots of stalls with crafty people selling their wares, and demonstrating their skills.

The best thing is that everything is free!!

I don’t have any qualifications in Education – only my experiences in ‘surviving’ the education system…

Doing the subjects at high school that one “should” do to get a good job

and to have the “best” career options – bah!

My mantra…

“follow your passion”

“do what you enjoy”

“do what makes you feel good”

“do what is meaningful to you”

Have a read / listen and let me know what you think?

Running a Creative/Crafts Biz?

Are you already running a creative/crafts business. Or maybe, you are thinking of starting one?
Take a look at this site:

http://www.theswitchboards.com

The Switchboards was set up in the US by a group of creative women in business who wanted to share information etc.

I sometimes have a look at the forum and find interesting info there.
