Creating Community One Workshop At A Time: Exploring Tucson With Creative Tribe Workshop

Community building is essential for any blogger, entrepreneur, or creative.  Community building gives the chance explore ideas, learn new skills, and socialize to better creative goals and pursuits.  One way to build community is through workshops.


The Tucson creative community is thriving.  It has provided an opportunity to get to know other like-minded people as well as discover other organically grown businesses/creatives that offer a unique flair.  Creating Community One Workshop At A Time is just a part of the goal of Theresa Delaney’s Creative Tribe Workshop.


Meeting new people and hands-on learning

Being a Midwest transplant, it’s a great introduction into what Tucson has to offer those who wish to learn from one another.  What I needed was to find my local tribe!

“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.” – Seth Godin

(Previously, I was asked my a member of the local Rising Tide Society’s Tuesdays Together event, here in Tucson.  I was introduced to other ladies who aspired to make their creative dreams and businesses come to life by creating community.  To learn more about Rising Tide Society and Tuesdays Together click here).

Fast forward a few months and returning from a trip home,  I came back to Arizona eager to get involved in the creative community.

Enter Tucson-based, Creative Tribe Workshop (@creativetribeworkshop).  Creative Tribe Workshop hosted a floral crown and braid bar along with Belle Starr Salon (@bellestarrsalon), Best Buds Botanical (@bestbudsbotanical), and accentuated with the lovely handpainted signs by Ashley of Modern Aquarian Lettering (@modernaquarian_lettering).  

It was a perfect way to celebrate the last Saturday of September!

So What Is Creative Tribe Workshop?  

A visit to, you’ll find “Creative Tribe Workshop is a series of opportunities to turn strangers into friends, pick up new skills and share in the joy of creative expression.”  



Workshops bringing the creative community together

It’s founder and host, Theresa Delaney, was welcoming and encouraging, enjoying watching the group of ladies create their floral crowns and get their hair braided.   

Give a girl bunches of flowers, hair styling, food and a garden party and what do you get? Creative Tribe Workshop and a great time!

Creatives pour their heart and soul into building their blogs and businesses. A few hours spent mingling, learning how to turn lush flowers into a crown, as well as meeting other creative-inspired souls was a perfect way to kick off a weekend!


     “Flowers make me irrationally happy.” – Alexa Von Tobel


           “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”  -Henri Matisse


There is nothing like a table full of flowers surrounded by women making floral crowns.

Thank you, Creative Tribe Workshop, Belle Starr Salon, and Best Buds Botanicals for creating a great event in Tucson!
