Ok, I admit it's taken a while to fine tune my vision for this business of mine and yes, I know it's important to know what type of business you want to run, how you want to run it and the ethos behind it, but when I started, it was such a whirlwind that I just went with the flow!
Now that I have found my rhythm and I'm thinking ahead (because I have something to plan for!), I have had time to really focus. So what is my vision?
Cygnini as started from my love of all things "arty/crafty" and I want to share that with as many people as possible - I guess some would call it a mission, but for me it's just about spreading the joy!
I see Cygnini as a community - a space where adults and children come to learn, to enjoy, to try something new. I want everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable to make mistakes, ask for help and, most importantly, laugh when things go wrong!
During our last online adult workshop, my mum attended and was all fingers and thumbs with the fairly fiddly project. She laughed, we laughed with her (you couldnt help it, it was infectious!) And you know what? The thing that people commented on was how enjoyable it was because of mum laughing about getting in a pickle! Never be embarrassed to try something and find the funny side of your mistakes.
