It’s just not true because...
not only are you made of the Cosmos itself - an ever changing, ever evolving, ever regenerating miracle of Life force - but also because by your very human nature you’re in constant creation.

When you ask a child if they can draw, they proclaim “yes!” for the simple reason that they can physically pick up a crayon and draw. They understand their innate ability to create.
But as adults we attach performance based quantification to creativity. Our thinking goes along these lines…”can I draw? Well I don’t think I can (or I’ve been told I can’t) draw well and therefore I can’t draw. And because I can’t draw well, (or paint, or sing, or whatever else we limit through our belief systems of creativity) then I’m not creative. And I’m not even going to waste my time trying. I’ll leave that to the artists.”

So! If you’d like to reclaim back your powerful creative essence, I’d love to be your guide and cheerleader!
With great care I translated my inspiring Clay Play Workshop through @klompceramics (which has seen many a disbeliever birth into a fully realised creative being!) into a 3 hour long online workshop via @teachable which you can do anywhere, any time, more than once.
It’s fun, it’s transformational, it’s empowering! Find out more here.
