kitwit studio - creating together

(apart)

kitwit studio: kreativery is a space for (current or aspiring) kreative explorers in various disciplines in Edinburgh's St. Margaret's House and online

Our Theme for March: Rehydrate your Mushrooms

How we nurture our kreativity in the dark places

New on Medium: Our March Mushroom update

We look back on a year since our first - and shortly after, our last - kitwit studio class, and a 2020 programme that remained hypothetical but that we're still very proud of! The best lesson to take from it all was found in a "grow your own mushrooms"-kit. Read all about it in our March update on Medium.

We're now on Medium!

Read our update on the February theme, and what's happened since October, here!

In short:

  • in October, we got into a Social Dilemma, and launched Adventures in Writing and Adventures in Drawing, which kept us busy for the next 8 weeks

  • in November, Dani graduated from writing workshop school, and finally travelled back to Edinburgh

  • in December, we finished the Adventures courses, and had a boardgame-tastic Christmas together!

  • in January, we took stock and realigned the kitwit vision with how we enjoyed (or not) online teaching

  • in February, we are gathering up all these pieces, launching Round 2 of Adventures in Writing, and plotting kreative labs for the year ahead

This was our theme for November 2020: Keep Going On

It continues to be relevant, so I'm leaving it here. Are you alright? Are you ok?

Welcome to the Studio

Creativity is important - for anyone, no matter how "good" you think you are at it (or not).

But just now, in this weird - WEIRD - time, it's more important to look after our mental wellbeing than to think in terms of things we "should" be doing. Creative activities can help, but they can also overwhelm.

It's our aim to provide space, ideas, and approaches for anyone in search of a creative outlet, no matter their skill or energy levels.

Quote: Be brave enough to be bad at something new.

What we can do for you currently
