98 Ways to Change

After asking you all to share how you will be more creative in 2019, your comments started flooding into our facebook and instagram pages. When there’s a £98 voucher up for grabs, why wouldn’t you?! We saw such a variety of creative goals; from simply making the time to be creative, to wanting to start exploring specific arts and crafts, to committing to spend some time with us at Create98. What creative bunch you are!

We loved hearing about your creative plans, so we thought it’s only fair that we share the creative goals of the Create98 team. So, here goes…

Christine: To cook more creatively and be more adventurous with my cooking, using healthy recipes!
Hannah: I am a printmaker and painter, so I plan to continue to develop my practice by accessing a new studio space, or creating my own, so I can exhibit my work and continue to grow as an emerging artist.
Liz: I really want to try my hand at pottery. It’s something I’ve never had a go at and have always been slightly put off by getting mucky hands! But this year, I will beat my fear of dirty fingernails.
Daisy: I want to try some of the creative activities we do at Create98 at home with my little one.
Lorraine: I’ll be joining Liz in a pottery class, definitely! I just need to make sure I book it in my busy schedule!

Finally, a big congratulations to Amanda Sones for winning a £98 course voucher – we look forward to seeing you soon.
