New workshop: Colour Psychology for Creatives

Colour Psychology is something that every creative business owner should have in their toolkit.

It’s game changing.



Thinking of revamping your website, creating a more distinctive social media presence or having a new logo designed? What you learn will give you a deeper understanding of your brand so that you can identify the fonts, colours, illustrative styles and patterns that will work for your business.

Struggling to find your distinctive style? Whether you’re an artist or florist, a garden, interior or graphic designer you’ll find everything falls into place after you’ve taken this class. It’ll be easier to streamline your portfolio, work out what makes you unique and communicate in a way that’s irresistible to your ideal clients.

Perhaps you’re a designer working hard to find your place in an overcrowded market? This class will enable you to really capture the essence of your clients’ business or brief and create work that resonates.




A creative, inspirational and incredibly useful introduction into how to use Colour Psychology to gain a deeper understanding of your brand, communicate more effectively and produce more powerful work.

Dear Fiona,
Your colour workshop sounds amazing and I’d love to participate. Unfortunately I’m not available on the date of the event. Will there be more workshops like this later on in the year?
Thanks, Linda


Hi Linda,

thank you so much for your lovely comments. I am planning another workshop in the Spring – probably early March at a guess so I’ll keep you posted (are you on the mailing list? That’s the first place I’ll announce more dates). At the moment I’m not planning any more workshops for this year as I am very conscious I have my book to get off to print before Christmas so I imagine that will be taking up a LOT of time 😉

Warmest regards, Fiona

Pam Adams

Fiona hi – I’m a mature Level 2 Florist student and have moved on to Millinery as a fascinating hobby – my social media knowledge is frustratingly lacking. I do have a blog which needs much refurbishment and input. Would I be out of my depth on your course amongst the ‘already’ branded participants? Best wishes Pam


Hi Pam, lovely to hear from you. It sounds to me like you’d be joining us at just the right time! The class will help you gain a clearer understanding of your floral style and you’ll be able to use what you learn to commission (or create) a revamped blog and website that will capture the essence of what you do and attract the right sorts of clients. So I think it’ll be perfect for you! Hope to see you there. Fiona


Hello – I’ve just discovered your blog, and I love it! I’d love to attend something like the workshops you do, but I live in the states. Any suggestions for events over here? (Specifically, I’m in the midwest in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where it’s freezing and these creative projects are keeping me positive instead of grumpy 🙂 )
Thanks! ~Mel
