Kitchen Table Workshops

They're custom-designed creative workshops in your homes (around the kitchen table or in your lounge but more about kitchens and their special affinity with creativity at the bottom of this page) with the idea of identifying what you would most like to develop creatively:

  • writing in a range of genres
  • drama / improvisation, 
  • singing and voicework, 
  • crafting, and self-care practices. 
As women we often nurture those around us. Kitchen Table Workshops aims to make that support available to ourselves in a fun, accessible and creative way. In your own home, or the home of a friend, you can relax and enjoy the creative activities and possibly arrange to have very young children with you. I aim to make these workshops doable for anyone who has young children or is more comfortable in their own home. Get together with 3-9 of your friends and book me for your next catch-up.

Why Kitchen Table Workshops?

I come from a long line of women for whom the kitchen is a central place of creativity, connection, nourishment and listening, talking, and understanding. 

Whenever we get together for a celebration or a funeral, a birth, a big birthday, the kitchen has always been where the cracking stories are shared by different women, where girls learn about their heritage, where hurts are shared and support is always given. 

I’d like to honour this fulcrum of connection and community (whatever that looks like for me and others), and home, by offering workshops within it. 

Have a workshop come to you and your friends, covering what you would really like to kickstart creatively in your lives. I aim to make it accessible, affordable, and enjoyable for you to explore your creative burn.
