Lifegym – calling all ‘misfits’

We have just begun a new kind of ‘gym’ here at Dreamspace Gallery and Workshops, Gisborne.  A downhome gym for the creative ‘misfit’ in you – a club for square pegs languishing in round holes… A learning gym to joyfully exercise mind and spirit, with workshops on a kaleidoscope of subjects from philosophy to writing to entrepreneurial startups to ferrocement. There’s a lounge and library, and facilities to make your own stuff to your heart’s content –

  • drawing and painting;
  • lapidary and jewellery;
  • bookbinding with embossed gold foiled covers and carved edges;
  • etching, embossing and woodcuts;
  • woodwork – bandsawing, routing, carving, cabinetmaking;
  • carving in plaster, stone, shell and bone,
  • mouldmaking and casting durable cement copies of your work in greenstone, marble, bronze and other finishes;
  • ferrocement sculpting – garden sculptures, pots, ponds, fountains, spiral herb gardens – even domes and cabins
  •  Much more… unlimited improvisation and creativity are routine round here!
  • What does it cost for access to all this abundance of stimulation and serious meaningful fun? Introductory pricing is just $19.99 a week casual, $17.77 a week with a year agreement, or only $15.55 weekly if you pay for a year in advance (a total of $808.60)
  • Safety and security: there is a code of practice and conduct to sign. Basically common sense combined with four foundational values to affirm allegiance to: Love, Beauty, Truth, and Freedom.
  • If you, or the misfit, idealist, creator and craftsperson in you, cautiously or incautiously loves the sound of this, contact me, Peter Harris, at 022 332 6568 or email for a no obligation, honest and transparent chat. Then sign up and let the lounging and learning, crafting and creating begin!
  • Follow the blog to hear all about what we are doing and maybe join in the discussions, download free stuff, buy my books (:) etc…
  • Like and Share us on Facebook. Thanks! Here’s to the misfit in all of us!
