Re: Calling all Creatives

I'm not sure if it's what your meaning but I am into paper crafts, i.e. scrapbooking and card making.

I got into it in a big way when we lived in the US and haven't had much time for it recently but I'm hoping I'll have more free time once we move to Zurich. So if that counts I'd definitely be interested.

Also very keen to get into jewellery making so any hints tips etc on getting started are welcome

Re: Calling all Creatives

My last accountant in the UK was pretty "creative"... does that count?

For the 15 years before I moved here I worked on the production side of creative display projects in London - producing displays for art galleries, marketing, advertising and more boring general commercial display and signage.

I still do a little in London and here so may be interested in getting involved. My old home page needs a lot of updating and tidying up but gives an idea of what I got up to.
This user would like to thank grumpygrapefruit for this useful post:

Re: Calling all Creatives

I don't think it falls under creative as defined by the direction of this thread but in my spare time I build skin-on-frame kayaks (fixed and collapsable)

The idea of a catress is intriguing.

I probably don't really count, as I'm only physically in CH occasionally (e.g., twice last year), but for those times (and for future reference?)...

• website/web application development
• writing/proofreading
• marketing/advertising background
• amateur magic/acting
• stage lighting/sound
• amateur photography/videography
• screen printing
• general carpentry

Re: Calling all Creatives

WOW... I was planning to do something similar...
I wanted to call it HONOMO project. Seriously. I heard a friend moaning about her work and how she felt she was just a corporte HO! She wished she could paint or do something arty as it would give her more satisfaction. So I thought well be a Ho no more and go for it....
The idea of the name came from there... HO' no MO'

If you wanna use it feel free!! That is my contribution!!

There's definitely a need for it. I see this as an open process, so perhaps we can collaborate on the event. I have a couple of interesting venues in mind. If anyone else is interested in helping with the event itself, let's PM. I think music and food is in order. Perhaps even some visuals. Let's see what we can pull together.

So do you have a particular craft?

Re: Calling all Creatives

great idea Phos.

Im an amateur photographer and a professional makeup artist. I took Film Production at Niagara College and worked on a couple independent low budget projects, mostly in production design or camera operating....once or twice in lighting. I used to do a lot of painting and sewing but I'm a little busy these days. That said I still have the sewing machine and some empty canvases kicking around. I also took crash courses in woodworking and welding when I was a teenager. I like to make stuff :-)
