Launch of Dinosaur Designs Atelier range of Queen B candles from Cate Burton at 1:41pm on 21 October
A creative collaborationis in some ways like giving birth (although the pain is rather more cerebral!)… you have to findthe right partner, with similar values. It's best if you each bring different, although compatible, strengths to the relationship. There's a process of getting to know one another and, if it is a good partnership, the alchemy where 1+1=3.
