Creative Resourcing

A nurturing space for creatives of all disciplines to come together and explore what sustaining a healthy life in the arts could look like.

I'm really sorry to say I've had to cancel the Creative Resourcing workshop as I didn't get enough take up.

I'm gutted about it as I really want to offer support for artists to thrive in uncertain times, but perhaps it's a sign of the times that artists don't have much spare cash to invest in themselves in this way.

I'm going to look into funding options to see if I can find another way to offer this weekend in the autumn.

Big love,

In this brand new weekend workshop, we’ll be using meditation, movement, embodiment, creativity, play, ritual and discussion to explore the themes of: 

  • resilience

  • support 

  • boundaries

We’ll be celebrating what we already have in place, getting clear about what we need more of and cultivating the courage to ask for what we need and say no to that which doesn’t support us. 

Holly will be sharing her playful, creative, reflective techniques to help you gently bring awareness to limiting patterns, habits and beliefs. Holly’s intention is to help you create space around these patterns, so that you can connect with a deeper sense of inner wisdom and gain access to a wider range of choices. 

Throughout the weekend, we’ll be sharing our experiences as a group and learning from each other as we dream into a healthier future together.

Here's Holly talking about where this weekend is coming from:

Who is this for?

This weekend workshop is for performers, musicians, directors, facilitators, makers, artists and creatives of all kinds. It is designed especially for Bristol Clown School, but you don’t need to be a member of Bristol Clown School, you don’t need to have worked with Holly and you don’t have to be a full-time artist to attend - if the workshop description calls to you, apply!
