Carran’s Creative Lab


The Creative Lab is a space and time for you to reflect on, explore, ruminate and develop your creative journey and practice with some practical explorations and mentoring that I offer from the experience I have gained in my own practice. .

At the moment this happens online. Please contact me for an initial discussion.

Past Creative Labs have followed a weekend retreat format where I guide and encourage you to develop your own creative ideas within a group context in an inspiring location that allows for both indoor and outdoor work.

Public Presentations from Carran’s Creative Lab

Work that has been created during the courses is given an opportunity for a public showing within a curated programme. Please see Manworks



Mentoring Programme

Sometimes a one-to-one experience is more appropriate and less time-consuming.

I also offer a mentoring programme that can take place face to face in a space of your own choosing and/or remotely through skype, facetime and email.

If you want to sound out an idea, require some feedback on something you are working on, or just need some time away from your day job, I can accommodate this through working out a series of appointments and achievable milestones.


Please contact me if you are interested in the Mentoring Programme.
