    September Workshop - Hand Painted Wooden Badges

    September Workshop - Hand Painted Wooden Badges

    This is our last ever Mind Over Matter Workshop Ghosites!! It's The Guide to Hand Painted Badges and will be held on Saturday 27/09/2016 from 2:00 til 5:00pm at PAPER Arts in Broadmead, Bristol.

    Join us (Laura and Lize) in a safe space to paint and decorate personal, helpful mementos. Words of encouragement and positive messages to the self make a world of difference when thinking about our own well-being.
    Simply writing down what we like about ourselves and the people around us can really put things into perspective, giving us something physical to refer back to when times are at their hardest.

    Create badges for yourself and your friends in this wonderful, hands-on workshop, while gaining some professional advice when it comes to packaging and presenting a creative product!


    This workshop is part of a series of workshops that were run throughout the year. Open to all, Mind Over Matter uses art and creative thinking to inspire and empower, equipping us with ideas and techniques to better improve our mental well-being.

    We're sad to end these but we'll be back in the Spring running more workshops. 

    If you have any questions or would like to know more, send us an ask Tumblr or contact us here

    Love Laura xxxx


    July's Mind Over Matter - Painted Plant Pots

    July's Mind Over Matter - Painted Plant Pots

    On Saturday 30th July I ran a workshop with PAPERArts called The Guide to Painted Plant Pots, which is part of The Mind Over Matter series.  It's a series of workshops to encourage creativity and self care awareness.

    Lize was unable to make it this month as she was drawing on the windows of Lush Bristol to help raise money for our workshops we run with OTR and spread some ghosite love!

    I have 'baby brain' at the moment as I'm currently growing a tiny human, so this workshop wasn't as organised as I would've liked, but I did get there in the end!! Thanks to everyone for your patience and to Sad Ghost Volunteer Brendan for helping me out on the day.

    The more workshops we've been doing, the more materials we've accumulated, so we had lots to go around.
    We had a few returning faces at this workshop and lots of new faces. We've made some lovely friends through doing this, so thank you so much for the support!
    It was lovely to see Bethany from Doll Hospital Journal who painted a beautiful plant pot.

    There's a variety of individuals that attend our workshops, with a wide range of experience in using their creativity. We want to encourage people to explore their creative side and make sure they go home with something they're proud of, no matter what they're crafting knowledge! 

    As well as painting plant pots we made some wild flower seed bombs, which they could either plant in their newly decorated pot or plant elsewhere. 

    Here's some of the plant pots made at the workshop! It's rare we get photos of what people have made because we get too into the workshop and forget to take photos, but this time I made sure to get a few snaps.

    Our next workshop for Mind Over Matter is Positive Postcards on the 27th August. I'll write a lil blog post about that soon. Click to book a space!!  

    Take care of yourself Ghosties! 
    Love, Laura oxox

    The Guide to Making Plant Pots Workshop

    The Guide to Making Plant Pots Workshop


    On Saturday 27th Feburary we ran a workshop with PAPERArts called The Guide to Painting Plant Pots, which is part of The Mind Over Matter series.  It was a workshop to encourage creativity and self care awareness.

    We had tissue paper, paints, an endless supply of glitter, plus loads of other materials to decorate your own plant pot! As well as that we also made seed bombs, which you could either plant in your pot or take away with you, to plant at a later date. 

    Amazingly, the workshop sold out and we also had people show up on the day, so we met so many lovely people. We're so happy you all came and got creative with us! 

    We're now working on the next workshop that will be on the 19th March. It's called the Guide to Positive Postcards and you can book here.

    Lots of love, 
    Laura and Lize
