So this is our first blog post, a chance to get creative with words, share what we've been up to and invite you to share your stories too, so welcome!
The last couple of weeks have been crazy busy here at Inspired Collective.
We kicked off our late-night openings at Sarah & Bendrix with organic wine-tasting with our friends at the organicwineclub, of Worcester Park, and hosted our first chocolate truffle-making session with the award-winning Aubel Chocolates of Ashtead.
It was a fun evening of learning a little about chocolate, how to make gorgeous little truffles, all washed down with a little prosecco and in the company of good friends!
There were a lot of laughs, a few dusty faces and some truffles, in varying degrees of professionalism!
Thanks to all those who attended, we really appreciate your support and the feedback you've given.
We've got loads going on here over the next couple of months, with Christmas wreath-making with the award-winning Mad Lilies of Banstead, on Tuesday 28th and Thursday 30th November, another chocolate workshop on Wednesday 6th December and the latest creative session to be planned is a fun activity for children, wtih ceramic Christmas gift-making with Made in Sutton, a community pottery cafe run by the lovely Kirsty Prescott, on Saturday 9th December, 10.00-12.00...so please check out our workshop/event listings at:
At Inspired Collective, we're slowly building a local community of creatives: those who already do, and those who want to learn. By supporting each other, we grow stronger, both individually and collectively, forge new friendships, and get some invaluable personal development in the process. So if that interests you, please join us and be part of our tribe! And if you have some super-creative friends who might benefit from getting to know us...please spread the word and invite them into our cosy little club too!
Connect with us by dropping an email to email@example.com and let us know what you're particularly interested in, follow us on Facebook and Instagram or even better, come in to the store (6 Upper Mulgrave Road, Cheam SM2 7AQ) and say an old-fashioned 'hi'!
We look forward to getting to know you better,
Petrica & Veronika
