Testimonials: what people have said about the programme

‘It was a lovely location.  Enjoyed the content… it was a wonderful experience, I loved the mindfulness aspect of it and all the exercises we did.’

‘Beautiful inspiring workspace and gardens. Nice to have time to focus and think on questions designed to expand our horizons.’

‘I found the studio is spacious, with good light, and having Jordan’s artwork around is inspiring. I loved we were able to use all the surrounding areas, especially given the weather.’

‘Lovely and inspirational space…beautiful garden and surroundings. Good amenities. Content was spot on and easy to understand, well planned schedule with just the right amount of time for each task, not too long but just short enough to have time to do the task and not enough to overanalyse.’

‘Lovely airy space to be. Lovely grounds to sit in too. Parking onsite was a bonus! It was nice to get a chance to meet others and hear about them. Loved the easy way Jordan spoke and related to all of us.’

‘I loved this course and have already recommended it to some of my other arty friends.

‘I loved the idea of being able to explore colour – it’s qualities and how it makes you feel. The course gave me an opportunity to take a few hours out each month for myself. I gave myself permission to reflect, explore, create and respond to my inner thoughts. The course content and facilitation was excellent, providing a warm, encouraging and safe environment for mindfulness and creativity.’

‘The course emphasised the importance of creativity for my wellbeing. Meeting other creatives and sharing is a positive as being an artist can be isolating and solitary. The focus on mindfulness was helpful. It also helped generate ideas for where I might go further with my practice.’

‘Great series of workshops. Highly recommended.

‘I recommend this course for anyone like me, who needs a space and a structured programme in order to unblock creativity. Jordan creates a safe space and everything in the programme was interesting and useful.’

‘Feeling creative but struggle to act on it or don’t know where to start? Or already have a creative practice but want to be inspired by like-minded people? This course is for you! Add the mindfulness and you’ve got yourself a winner. The cherry on the top is the lovely supportive people you’ll meet and of course Jordan is amazing.’
