Getting the balance right

Just listened to the one about teaching. I’m an artist that also teaches - the thing I found challenging was trying to get that balance right between how much I was teaching and how much time I had left to do my own work. I’m now readdressing this balance.

Reassuring and enjoyable...

This was recommended to me by a potter friend and I can’t thank her enough. It’s reassuring and informative. As creatives we often spend a lot of time on our own and even the best out there have periods of self doubt. To be able to listen to your advice and to know that we are not alone is just wonderful, thank you.

Encouraging and inspiring

I am really enjoying this podcast, it comes at a key time for me starting back on my journey as an artist after having children. I’m listening to this podcast whilst creating my first commission for a while and I’m gleaming so much encouragement and wisdom along the way from Laura and Peter. Thank you!! Keep going!!
