Groups and Workshops

I offer group workshops and courses in community areas in West Cork and in my


A new Thrive group starting 20th January 2020!

September 2019, THRIVE is a course consisting of 7 workshops over 7 weeks which will focus on creative connection in the community. The workshops will be held outside in the beautiful An Sanctoir and in my studio close by.

No previous experience necessary – the course will help you find and re-awaken your creative spark with art practices that combine different disciplines and media.

You will learn how to rediscover how natural it is to create, and how words, sounds, music and nature can fill you with inspiration. During the course we will use mindful techniques to focus on our inner selves and then through creative writing and story telling we will dialogue with the materials and our art to gain deeper meaningful insights. During the course you will experience how art can help you transform blockages, and stressful emotions or anxiety into opportunities for positive change.

Please contact Marika for more information.

Workshop is limited to 6 women so early booking is recommended.
