Tailored Workshops for Every festival

As a festival organiser, you understand the importance of curating diverse and engaging experiences that resonate with your audience. Our Conscious Crafting workshops offer a unique element to your festival, providing attendees with a meaningful and enriching activity. We have designed a range of workshops tailored to fit various festival themes and settings, from food festivals to mindfulness events, ensuring there’s a perfect fit for your festival’s atmosphere.

Our Workshop formats

We offer two flexible formats to suit your festival’s scale and setting:
 

Full Workshops

Held in a designated space with access to necessary resources, these are ideal for an immersive experience. They last at least 2 hours and cater to 10-12 participants, providing an in-depth exploration of crafting.

Pop-Up Craft Sessions

These are perfect for festivals with open spaces where attendees can join at any time. Lasting about 30 minutes on average, they offer a quick and engaging crafting experience for participants on the go, typically set up as market stall with a few work spaces.

Marketing and Collaboration

We collaborate closely with festival organisers to ensure our workshops are a seamless fit. We provide descriptions and marketing materials that can be used to promote the festival, alongside our own marketing efforts which highlight our presence at the event, adding value and exposure.
 

Overcoming Challenges

One challenge has been ensuring our pop-up workshops appeal to adults as well as children. While the quick nature of pop-ups doesn’t always allow for deep meditation, they serve as a great introduction to Conscious Crafting. We use these opportunities to engage adults in creative play and introduce them to more in-depth workshops.

 

Logistical Considerations

Whether it’s a quiet, meditative space or a bustling market stall setup, we adapt our workshops to your festival’s environment. Practical considerations such as the availability of water, electricity, and shelter are all factored into our planning to ensure a smooth, enjoyable crafting experience.

 

future Plans

We are continually looking to adapt and expand our workshops to align with new festival themes and emerging trends. By staying flexible and responsive to opportunities, we ensure our workshops remain relevant and engaging for all participants.
