About this event


Calling all creatives in training!

Join me for an 'Artist's Way' online study group to recover your creativity and start caring for yourself.

You don't need to be an artist or writer or anything else creative, all you need is Julia's book (any version) and a desire** to work on your self-care.


Julia Cameron's 'The Artist's Way' program has been used by countless people to find the creative part of them that time, fear, or life erased.

Here's what's involved:

1 - Once a week, we meet online (Zoom) to discuss the week that's been, talk about creative goals, and what small step we might take to get closer to it. We do an easy creative activity together, a simple collage, a drawing, some silly rhymes, only using whatever you have to hand.

Keep it simple, easy does it. We do this in 13 weeks. Week 1 is about getting to know one another, talking you through the various concepts and ideas. After week 1, we'll start reading Julia's book, one chapter a week.

2 - each week, read a chapter at home;

3 - each day, try and free-write a page or two (no experience or skill required; I will take you through this in week 1);

4 - and each week, give yourself an Artist's Date (as before, no experience or skill is required; I will take you through this in week 1).


We meet online on Monday evenings (7pm, Dublin, London) for 13 weeks. To allow time and space for everyone, places are limited to 5 people.

There's a LOT in this book - 12 chapters, each jammed with information, tasks, tips, and healing, so as humans (AND mid global pandemic!), we'll aim to do only what we can do.

Good enough is good enough. If you need to duck out, or miss a class, that's no problem: do make sure to come back the following week, you won't be required to catch up ;-)


This study group costs €99 (about US$120 or CAN$145). Register here on EventBrite.

You need to buy your own print copy of Julia Cameron's book 'The Artist's Way', and failing that, an e-book version of same.

The Zoom link will be emailed to you a few days before.


Not sure if The Artist’s Way is for you? Confused about the many versions of the book?? Wondering if this group is any good??? Drop me a mail via EventBrite.

Looking forward to working the Artist's Way with you!
