Who are you?
Hello! Nice to meet you! I'm Eugenie, I turned 44 on Christmas Day, I am married to JP, a mad Mancunian triathlete, and have two daughters blonde blue eyed Erika (6) and brunette Skye (3 and a half).
Le Workshop is my third creation!
I'm not an "artist" but I've always wanted to 'do things with my hands' probably as an antidote to working in an office from 9 to 5 for too long! And because we were all created to create, I reckon!
"It always seems impossible until it's done".
That's my favourite quote and how I got to Australia from France, where I'm from, and to Jervis Bay from Sydney nearly 3 years ago after a goal set on a walk in Hyams Beach where I declared: "we will have a house here by the time I'm 40". And we did...and 1 year later we moved here full time.
Best. Decision. Ever!
What's this all about?
Is it a life stage thing? Moving to a quieter environment? Having less friends and more time? Probably a bit of everything!! It all started when I attended a furniture revamping workshop in Berry and became hooked...
...Hooked on what can be achieved by total beginners with some structured advice and more so... hooked on the magical connections you can make with TOTAL strangers in a non 'judgy', inspiring atmosphere....
I want to share that magic...make people feel great...help artists share their talents and connect with their local community...build friendships and make those human connections last beyond the workshop 'event' itself.
My goal is to open up a real workshop where all this great stuff can take place face to face. In the meantime, I've set up some workshops for you in lovely local venues! Since March, we've ran over 10 events and have received some great feedback from participants and with many have attended more than one event...
Sounds great! What happens now?
Don't waste any more time trawling through youtube and pinterest for online tutorials... Let's meet, let's create, let's laugh and grow together!
Have a look at the Events page and join us for a social catch up or a workshop! I'm constantly meeting new local artists, checking out new venues and figuring out how to all make it work for you! Let me know if we're on the right track!!!
I've also set up a Le Workshop Facebook group so we can all properly connect! Join us!
