business education 


You've had to learn a lot since starting your professional upcycling business, including skills you never thought you needed before becoming a business owner.  Running a creative business requires a great many attributes from the practical to the instinctive, which is where guidance from those in the know - who have already been there and read the book - is invaluable.

Watch out for Friday lives at 1230 on Instagram with the House of Upcycling Founder Chris Billinghurst and a guest expert, when they will discuss their business, their values, their skills and their successes. Each Upcycling Business IG live will be saved to IGTV. Some of Chris' guests will also be featured here where you can book a personal bitesize mentorship session with them.

From copywriting to pod casting, intuitive art to social media, gain insight into all those areas of business that have left you feeling out of the know. There is no better time to reset, relearn and feel in control of your unique ability to learn and to create a thriving and successful creative business.


Artist Sally-Anne Ashley is an intuitive abstract expressionist, working from her studio on the Essex coast. Her art is created through layers of paint, collage and textiles, returning to hand embroidery when she needs to slow things down. Her inspiration stems from an intuitive place, with ideas drawn from life and personal experiences, conveyed through text, gestural marks and abstracted shapes.

Join Sally-Anne for a one-hour education and inspiration mentorship during which she will share with you how she frees her creative mind to produce pieces of art which can be colourful or monochrome, are always vibrant and fascinating and totally unique. Whether you are a professional upcycler, artist or other kind of creative, Sally-Anne can help release your creative aspirations and help you work from a more personal and original place.

Professional upcycling is not only a new 21st century concept, its practitioners are having to learn new business skills along the way to success, which is why engaging with a peer creative - who not only excels at upcycling but also in other areas of business - is of such value. Our new Peer to Peer Programme offers current Members of the House of Upcycling the opportunity to learn from experienced Peer Members, how to deal with old and new business issues .
