creAte cafe

an online creative community

CreAte Cafe is a community of women heARTists who gather for weekly art making and inspiration. We bring whatever creative projects we’re working on, whether that’s watercolour, book-making, art journaling, knitting, sketching, and so on.

Imagine…you’re sitting around a virtual table with other artsy women, learning new techniques, being supported through the creative process, sharing laughter, and forming friendships along the way.

That’s what this group is about. There’s a wonderful creative energy here that allows for open and courageous self-expression, where everyone feels seen and heard. All skill levels are welcome.

Come join us! Your spot is waiting and I can’t wait to create with you 🙂

A bit of history…

This art group, in its many iterations, has been active since August of 2014. I started it as a Meet-up group, meeting every 2nd week at a local coffee shop for art journaling and expressive art explorations. We soon outgrew that location, and when a new venue opened just 5 minutes from my home, I booked the large, centre table for our group. Every second Wednesday night, we would arrive with our art supplies and spend several hours together, playing, learning, and meeting other creative folks. Over time, a core group formed, many still active today. When Co-Vid kept us home, we shifted to a weekly format over Zoom from the comfort of our own studios. Our gatherings became a creative lifeline during forced isolation, and provided a new but equally fun and inspirational way for us to meet. Location, winter roads, or a slight cough were no longer barriers to attending, and we’ve been able to grow our circle because of it.

2024 marks 10 years of community, creativity and connection – thank you to everyone who has been a part of it! <3
