LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOPS – JULY 2020

PILATES FOR THE PEN

Two guided writing workshops to relax your mind and sharpen your creativity.

Would you love an immersive hour of writing in the company of others? No anxiety, no interruptions, just a calm, focused space in which your imagination can stretch and strengthen?

Welcome to Pilates for the Pen.

Led by best-selling author & storyteller Cat Weatherill, you will follow a series of exercises designed to release your creativity and sharpen your concentration. It is a self-reflective writing journey, exploring images and the mysterious power of metaphors.

It’s easy to follow and suitable for every level of writing.

How will you feel afterwards? Calm, energised and ready for the weekend!

I have made my living as an artist for the past thirty five years. That is a LOT of experience under my belt! now I work as a trainer, either with organisations or one-to-one, to pass this expertise on and help develop emerging artists.
