TUTOR AND OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Christine Smalley Founder and Creative Director of Etelage (est 2002), shares her passion for artisan traditions and vintage design. Drawing inspiration from 1920s deco style, 1960s jet set glamour and1970s boho chic governs her artistic expression.
She observes that generally as a society we are becoming more mindful about our choices: conscious of choosing products which are made using artisan traditions and not mass produced, and seeking quality over quantity. So it is with that philosophy all Etelage tutors she share her skills and knowledge of jewellery design to encourage all students to awaken their creative soul and seek beauty, slow, artisan and local.
WHY WE BELIEVE CREATIVITY IS IMPORTANT IN OUR LIVES
Why is creativity so important for your team?
Did you know anxiety and depression overwhelming affects a staggering 4o% of Australian women? We live our modern western lives in perpetual motion with perpetual social media, news feeds and noise. Research confirms that digital technology makes us feel anxious and we know if we tried to keep up with the ‘rosy instagram’ perfected life we see daily, life can suddenly seem overwhelming.
And the advice from psychologists; we need to to get back to basics, drop perfectionism and make and do stuff more. Whether we are carers, full time workers, retired or studying the importance of creativity in our lives is paramount for all stages and for all ages. Plan a creative afternoon once a month with your friends, start a hobby, join a regular craft class, disconnect from technology once a week and nurture your creative soul.
We all have to balance life, family, work and pleasure. Make sure you factor is some creativity also. Create a habit and make time for your creative habit.
Let’s meet face to face, learn a new skill and have some fun with the other real imperfect people!
WHY CREATIVE TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES AND FOSTERING CREATIVITY IN THE WORKPLACE IS IMPORTANT
When you allow for regular creative team building activities in the workplace it leads to:
- improved performance,
- improved collaboration,
- improved communication,
- improved problem – solving skills,
- improved critical thinking,
- improved decision making,
- improved ideas,
- improved motivation,
- improved creativity,
- improved confidence.
(Which is a very impressive list*)
We believe workplaces need regular and deliberate fun team building exercises to enable employees to recharge, switch off technology, create some shared memories, maximise their creativity, and feel passion for their work. After completing team building activities together, most employees will have a better understanding of each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and interests. This understanding helps them work even better together on future progress vital to a company and a teams success.
We have found even a creative work place like ours needs to factor in some creative activities. As an all girl team we have enjoyed a make up workshop, bohemian wall art class and yoga vege cooking retreat.
Ts and Cs
It is always our goal to start the event with all guests present. We are happy to delay the event by up to 15 minutes and it is most desirable to have everyone present before we start. If however in the event a guest/s are late we will delay proceeding no more than 15 minutes later than scheduled.
In the event a confirmed guest is unable to attend at the last minute we are happy to give you a jewellery kit for them. Unfortunately no refunds are available after payment is made.
We are unable to cater for small children at our venues unless they are babies in a pram.
Camera shy? We may take photos and/or video at your workshop to use in our marketing materials including social media. If you do not wish to have your photo taken or appear in a video please let us know.
