Everything we experience forms a part of who we are and what we do and therefore what we offer. We rely heavily on the arts to inspire us and this is critical to us as individuals as well as a business.
Everyone at Creamer and Lloyd has their own budget for research and inspiration. On a regular basis we share on our website the best experiences we’ve had.
Caribou Island is startling in its fearlessness, confronting the reality of wasted love; of a wasted life. This gripping tale of marital and mental breakdown is set against the luscious landscape of a bright cold Alaskan winter.
Hadley is one of my favourite contemporary writers, but I hadn't come across Harvey until this free event at Foyles bookshop. Both writers really gelled, making for an honest and inspiring conversation about the mysterious compulsion to write.
It's a very humbling experience putting yourself into a situation where you know nothing. I find I am very being kind to myself, as we are with children learning to talk. It's lovely to have such a lot to learn.
One for the diabetics amongst us but actually its power was in the day to day stories that each of us told the group around our struggles and successes. Apart from the many excellent things about this course, it was life-affirming.
When you look at somebody for 3 hours you get to know a lot about them! These classes force me to stop and look when everything else is screaming "GO FASTER!"

This one's about the music which, of course, carries the story in place of any dialogue. The music's the hero, and it's beautiful too.
This is the best time of year to see trees, when they're bare and exposed. There's shape, texture and colour on the bark. Silver birches are glowing right now.
A little slice of canary yellow and dove grey heaven. Birdhouse serves 1st rate coffee from Climpsons and Sons, along with homemade goodies. Quirky decor - water served in brown glass bottles and luminous kick stools - made me sigh with delight.

A collaboration of scientific and artistic minds has conceived a way to combat air pollution through the surface of our clothes. A beautiful and elegant solution which embodies how the future might look, where we can actively participate in purifying air.
We followed a bluesy beat to the corner of Brixton Village, 3 musicians were lost somewhere amongst a crowd that spilled from the restaurants. On bicycle seats we consumed delicious slices of wafer thin pizza and watched the kitchen's frenetic dance.
