Conscious Crafting to Connect and Create

In collaboration with The Friendship Café, Conscious Crafting is pleased to announce its weekly Art Journal Workshops, designed for individuals of all skill levels who wish to improve self-knowledge through the means of creativity. These workshops are suitable for beginners as well as those seeking a comfortable environment to express themselves artistically.

Workshop Structure and focus

The workshops begin with a guided meditation, bringing the awareness to the theme and the attention to the here and now for the session. Participants then engage in journaling activities which inspire hands-on art making. The aim is to use art as a medium for self-reflection, mental well-being and personal growth. The sessions conclude with a reflection and a round of sharing among participants.

facilitator Background

The workshops are led by Suzan McCreadie, founder of Conscious Crafting, offering guidance and support to all attendees. With extensive experience in conducting workshops, Conscious Crafting has brought over 100 sessions of workshops to the greater Waterford area.

I loved how everyone contributed to the conversation,
even though we’d only just met. Thank you for making that happen.

Materials and Techniques

Each session introduces different materials and artistic techniques, some well known others bringing a surprise element. This ensures that every workshop provides a unique and fulfilling experience. You will be challenged to connect personal insights with chosen materials and reflect those in your creations. Note that we do not create 3D art but aim to create your personal Art Journal as testament of your transformative journey.

Environment and Atmosphere

The workshops are designed to foster a sense of community, with a maximum of 10 participants per session to maintain an intimate and supportive environment. This setting encourages attendees to connect with one another in a trusting and encouraging atmosphere.

Workshop Schedule and fees

The Art Journal Workshops are held every Thursday from 6.30 PM to 8.30 PM in The Friendship Café in Coffee House Lane, Waterford. During this introduction period, the fee is €5 per session, non-refundable, which covers the cost of materials and coffee, tea and a nibble provided during the session. You may also be requested to give feedback as part of the reduced rate.
