Rewards for YOU!
Wow - a milestone day - we've made it to 50 funders and it's incredible to know that this is just the tip of the iceberg!
Today we wanted to share more details of our rewards for our fabulous donors!
For €20 you can select the Greywood Tote, for €25 the limited edition Goat on a Tote by artist Sarah Randall, or for €30 the Greywood Notebook. Of, if you can't decide, get both a Greywood tote, notebook and postcard in the I LOVE GREYWOOD Bundle for €75.
These are mock ups of the designs, so actual colours and palcement may vary slightly as we collaborate with the production company.
One of our most special rewards is a Leaf on the Tree of Gratitude.
Donors of €100 will receive their name (or name of choice) stamped onto a handcrafted porcelain leaf plaque to commemorate our thanks for your support in renovating the coach house into an arts centre. Made by local ceramicist Susan Herlihy of Craftyhands studio fame, the leaves will be installed on a wall in the new arts centre, becoming part of the fabric of the building. Visitors will be able to find their name on the tree for generations to come - what a wonderful legacy!
We also have some brilliant opportunities for Creative Mentorship!
In addition to a special version of the Reconnect with your Creativity online course, we have a Creative Consult for Writers and Advice from a Curator.
Whether you’ve strayed from a once steady creative practice or are taking the plunge trying something new, the Reconnect with your Creativity course (€150) will support you as you (re)discover what gets you excited about creative making.
Limited to 12 places! And anyone who donates by Nov 15 will get an extra 45-minute 1-to-1 Zoom session to help you strategise your creative practice post-course. Also makes a great holiday gift!
The sessions will include exercises for looking inward, for playful creating, and for working together while apart. Discussion will be framed in a non-judgmental way to help the group build trust and camaraderie with other. We might write, sketch, stitch, scavenge, doodle, meditate, or take photos. Materials will be easy to source - you probably already have most of them lying around the house. There will be tasks to do between meetings to keep your creative brain engaged.
The course meets virtually, via Zoom, for 6 1.5 hour sessions in January/February (time TBD with participants). They will be facilitated by Greywood’s Artistic Director, Jessica Bonenfant. Jessica is passionate about the creative process and dabbles across disciplines. She has a background in dance, improvisation, and directing, but also enjoys lino block printing and needle felting. As a teacher and facilitator, she has worked with children, teens and adults – beginners through professional.
