education & inspiration programs
You've had to learn a lot since starting your business, including skills you never thought you needed before becoming a business owner beckoned. Running a creative business requires so many skills from the practical to the instinctive which is where guidance from those in the know who have already been there and worn the t-shirt, is invaluable. Each month we will feature experts in their field where the Creative Conversation program begins with a live Instagram conversation (saved to IGTV) after which you will have the opportunity of booking a private education and inspiration session with each of our Creative Conversationalists; one hour online in a one-to-one creative conversation of your own. 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 - time for the empowerment of inspiration and education with Creative Conversations.
Creative Conversation with: SALLY-ANNE ASHLEY ART
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 her ideas drawn from life and personal experiences within it, conveyed through text, gestural marks and abstracted shapes.
Join Sally-Anne for a one-hour education and inspiration Creative Conversation during which she will share with you how she frees her creative mind to produce pieces of art which can be colourful or monochrome, 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 work from a more personal and original place.
Meet Sally-Anne on IGTV. Hosted by House of Upcycling Founder Chris Billinghurst, learn about Sally-Anne's work ethos, lifestyle, inspiration and watch a tour of her studio too.

PEER TO PEER PROGRAM
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 Program will offer current Members of the House of Upcycling as well as those who have recently applied for membership, the opportunity to learn from professional upcyclers or to simply be inspired by a new way of dealing with old business issues. Our Members will share their knowledge on different areas of running a professional upcycling business, with new Peer to Peer Programs featured each month. Watch our social media accounts for news of the launch date.
