Circle By Hand was created as a place where people can come and be immersed in a care-free creative process regardless of age, background, skill level or previous experience. Yet, it’s more than just this. It’s about learning, creating and living. Sometimes with the hustle and bustle and stresses in our lives, we repeat unhealthy patterns, in thoughts and in actions and even with in-action because we aren’t coping as well as we’d like. These patterns can develop over time into an unhealthy view of the world, yourself, and those around you. Circle By Hand can help by teaching techniques while having fun on how to re-wire those habits into a more positive, healthy, logical and emotionally productive outcome. And it’s just down-right a whole lot of FUN!
