At Creatis we're fascinated by the creative process, for all its benefits, and want to further understand, explore and make it part of our everyday living. And we can do so by learning new skills, leveraging appropriate tools, being active & playful, adding to our bag of experiences and having the right mindset.
Active, Discovery Learning
Creativity is an activity. It's about using your skills. Learn a new art form, delve deeper into an existing domain or gain a holistic study of the textile making stages. Choose from a copious amount of art forms. Our classes are hands-on with an emphasis on details, taught by masters that have a collective experience of 200+ years. Explore, experiment, play, doubt assumptions, assauge your curiosity, engage in deliberate practice.
Learning while creating
As you learn, you get to create a product uniquely yours. Play with maker tools, designs, colors to personalize your experience. Use different media - physical & digital - to create. Express yourself via your newly discovered medium. And, whilst creating, discover your creative process and explore the world inside you.
A membership pass that allows you studio access for a period of time. Spend a day or several days to combine and connect different art forms to imagine new possibilities.

a way of being
A state of flow, as frequently described, is a state where you feel your best and perform your best. This state is often experienced during a creative task where you are focused, challenged and experiencing novelty. The attempt, at Creatis, is to have the challenge slightly greater than the skill. To get you to stretch. To get you into a mindset where it's not so much about what you making but about a way of being.
“The arts especially address the idea of aesthetic experience. an aesthetic experience is one in which your senses are operating at their peak, when you are present in the current moment, when you are resonating with the excitement of this thing you are experiencing, when you are fully alive.” The vibrant colors we perceive, the texture of fabrics brushing against our finger tips, the sound of the printing blocks tapping the fabric, the roar of a sewing machine- these are all a part of the sensory experience you will encounter at Creatis.
