KINDNESS ROCKS - SCOUTS UK

Scouts UK partnered up with the British Red Cross for a beautiful cause of spreading kindness through rock art. It has been a pleasure to also be part of this project and paint these pebbles for Scouts UK. 

This activity is all about doing something kind for others and thinking about the difference this makes. People were invited to leave positive pebbles in their local community or write kind messages on bookmarks and put them inside library books for others to find.

ZOUBIDA RETREAT - MOROCCO

ZOUBIDA is a creative retreat which takes place in Lalla Takerkoust, Morocco. Zoubida is about letting go, disconnecting from daily life and connecting with nature and the ,human senses.


As part of this retreat, I facilitated art workshops that link nature, food and culture to art-making in a group format.

ZOUBIDA - LONDON

Similar to the above retreat, in this one day workshop people were invited to let go through meditation, acting activities and creative workshops.

The art workshops I facilitated included painting and collage activities. Attendees were exposed to a variety of art materials and came together to create art together in the space.

ART WORKSHOPS - CHIANG MAI

Art Relief International's workshops and projects aim to provide artistic instruction, encourage self-expression, cultivate creativity and indulge in the healing benefits of art, while promoting awareness for several social issues in Thailand.


Thanks to ARI I facilitated art workshops with students, Burmese migrants and segregated single mothers in Chiang Mai. Some of these workshops included mark making, post card making and pebble art.

ROCK ART WORKSHOPS - LONDON

The Institute of Imagination's annual Makers Faire is packed with creative activities for children and families. 


Making reference to my rock art books, I invited children and their parents to paint designs, animals and faces on pebbles as part of my Rock Art Workshop.

PATCHES MARKET, VALLETTA MALTA

This video depicts Malta's first artisan market which I founded back in 2010. Patches Market brought together a variety of local talented artisans. It gave them visibility and an opportunity to network and expand their business.

 

Attending the workshop has really helped me focus on making time for myself again. So after work i try to switch off and do something relaxing for myself.

For 2 whole hours I was lost into magazines & pictures switching off my mind. It was one of the most creative and meditative time I had in the last few years.
