What We Do

At Creative Life Works, we offer both stand alone and themed 'series' workshops and training for individuals, groups and organisations. 


Our aim is to provide a safe and encouraging environment in which particpants can develop and experiment with creative outlets. Our events are designed to provide enjoyable and refreshing breaks from the hustle and bustle of daily life and for people to leave feeling inspired and re-connected with their creativity.
