How to Reset Your Year in Line With Your Values

Self-Paced, Three-Part Programme

mdc-heart-bg
Heart
The Making Design Circular approach is unique because it combines head, heart and hand skills and most courses include an element of each.
  • Head means you predominantly use your brain to think things though
  • Hand means you’ll have the opportunity to learn new making techniques
  • Heart means it’s informed by coaching techniques and there’s likely to be some soul searching required

How to Reset Your Year in Line With Your Values

If you feel like the year is already running away with you, sign up for this three-part workshop to help to reflect, reset and replan your environmental actions for the year. This is a self-paced course that will help you to plan your year to make space for your environmentalism efforts so that you, your business and the planet can thrive.

Does this sound like you?

1
You’re a designer-maker and you have big plans for your environmental efforts this year, but somehow time always seems to run away from you
2
You’re feeling overwhelmed by everything (not just the eco-stuff) you want to achieve this month, this quarter or this year
3
Your studio’s a mess, you’ve got three sketchbooks on the go and you can never find a bloody pen when you need one (not promising any direct solutions to these, but it’s a whole vibe, am I right?!)
Take a deep breath and find a clean sheet of paper. You’ve got this.

“Katie is an inspiring, design-obsessed, all-round fantastically interesting human. I truly look forward to every opportunity I get to work alongside her and learn from her.”

Hey, I'm Katie Treggiden

I once told a business mentor that my mission was to “inspire, educate and empower designer-makers to join the circular economy.”

He told me he didn’t think I was doing that. “What?!” I said. “I’ve written books, I’ve got a podcast, I give talks on the world’s stages, I write for everybody from the Guardian to Crafts Magazine – what more can I do?!” I responded, slightly affronted.

“Oh, you’re inspiring them, for sure,” he said. “But what about the educate and empower part? What about the ‘how’?”

He was right of course and in that moment Making Design Circular was born.

I have since interviewed hundreds of designers, makers, artists and craftspeople about their sustainability journeys and beta-tested everything in the membership, short courses and 1:1 nature-informed coaching offer with brave souls who saw me embark on my own “progress over perfection” journey.

I have seen first-hand the transformation this work has had for those who have joined so far – and I want that for you too.

What’s included

1
3 x videos that were recorded with a live audience to give you a sense of energy and camaraderie

Exercises that will help you decide where to invest your energy and resources for the year ahead – and what to let go of
3

4
Worksheets that, once completed, you will pin up above your workstation to keep you motivated throughout the year
5
Access to a private online community to share your progress, ask questions and connect with likeminded souls

Dive into any course. If at any point before completion you feel it's not teaching you anything new or it's not relevant to your world, hit the brakes.
Reach out to us before you finish the course. That's crucial. If you complete it, we'll take it as a nod that you found value in our content.
We'll refund every single penny. No hard feelings. No lengthy processes. Just straight talk and fair play.


Note: Under the UK Consumer Contracts Regulations, you (as a consumer) have the right to cancel a course within 14 days. This right applies regardless of whether the course will be taken online or in person. However, this assumes that you have not accessed the course material on the course website. Our policy offers more than this…a full refund at any point before completing the course.

Frequently Asked Questions

All the course materials hosted on a platform called Circle, so you can find everything in one place and track your progress as you move through the content. You will receive immediate access as well as a series of reminders by email to keep you on track. (You can cancel or reset these at anytime.)

The exact content varies by course, but most include a series of videos and workbooks, a ‘Read/Watch/Listen’ list for those who want to dive deeper and email reminders to keep you on track.

If you take any of my self-paced courses, you will also become eligible for my *free* quarterly “Ask Me Anything” sessions via Zoom so can get clarification or dig deeper on any part of the course.

Again, it varies by course so check the fact box at the top left of this page. Most videos are 30–90 minutes long and you can usually do the exercises as you watch. Some courses include additional homework or “challenges” which you might want to dedicate more time to – but you can do everything at your own pace.

You have access to all the course materials as long as the course exists, so you can work through at your own pace and revisit as many times as you need to.

This is an online self-paced course so you can work at your own pace, around other commitments and from any time zone. You will be invited to live quarterly Q&As via Zoom where you can bring any questions.

All videos are captioned and written transcripts and audio-only versions are provided. If there’s anything else I can do to make the course more accessible, please just ask and I will always do my best.

If you are in the UK, we have to charge you VAT. If you are not in the UK and outside the EU, we will not charge you VAT. If you are in the EU, we have to charge VAT unless you provide a VAT number, in which case we don’t. Simple, huh?! But don’t worry – our payment system will work all of this out for as you add your address details. (If you’re having any trouble entering your VAT number, make sure the two-letter prefix, e.g. DK for Denmark) matches the country you’ve entered in your address. Give us a shout if you’re having any trouble and we’ll get you sorted.

Nope! By popular demand, we have moved away from Facebook and now use Circle for hosting all the course materials as well as the community aspect.

A comments thread on each video enables you to share learnings and “aha” moments, ask questions and connect with likeminded souls on the same journey

You can ask questions on the comments thread on each video – I check in most days so will respond as quickly as I can.

Having taken this course, you will become eligible for my *free* quarterly “Ask Me Anything” sessions via Zoom so can get clarification or dig deeper on any part of the course.

And if you’re stick stuck and need a quick response, you can always shoot me an email. 

Again, it depends on the course, so check the details in the fact box at the top right of this page, but most of the higher-priced courses have some sort of payment plan. 

**Include Daniel’s refund copy**

Email me and I’ll be happy to answer it!
