Design facilitation with the ‘Adapt’ tool kit

We are all designers. We are constantly making decisions.  We have aims we would like to achieve. From time to time we get stuck in a way of thinking or with a particular challenge. A fresh perspective and innovative approach can help us break free of these blocks.  Over years of study and practical application Bridget has developed a facilitation process and tool kit for designing all aspects of life.  This can be used to help people and organizations achieve their aims by design.

Design process facilitation can assist you to overcome your challenges and to make confident decisions about your garden, your political campaign, an event, meeting or a kitchen renovation…and that is just the beginning.

3, 9, 15, and 20 hour packages are available

Workshops & Presentations

Each workshop focuses on a particular theme, approach, challenge or opportunity & can be delivered in a range of possible formats from interactive lecture, to workshops of varying lengths, or retreats. We believe that skills, practices, ideas and values are inextricably enfolded – & any effective workshop explores both practices and our ideas about these.

Floral Art

Playing with botanicals is one of Bridget’s long time passions, from wall hangings and sculpture making to event decorations. She uses the bounty found around her to craft beauty. Harvesting from the garden or favorite local growers each arrangement is unique to the event and season. Now working in collaboration with Enchanted Florist.

Fermentation

Fermentation is a beautiful thing. It preserves, it expands our palate, it fuels us. It is a age old natural process the transforms ordinary to extraordinary.

Using a love of gardening and wild places to harvest bountiful  ingredients Bridget specializing in fermented beverages. She adores local flavors of honey, apples, herbs, flowers and fruits to make Jun, mead, gruit and cider. While taking time to experiment with  vegetables, milk and grain fermentation. .

There is a bountiful harvest around us to play with, if we know how.
