Temporary & Enduring Emotion

If you’re going to be a designer you’re going to need to bring some big dreams to work. You’re going to need enough momentum to set the world alight with your own creative truth.


Two decades ago Amanda Henderson formed Gloss Creative as a creative platform for experimentation and exploration. What ensued has been the endless rewarding creation of ephemeral installations, put up, pulled down, each one leaving an enduring mark on its audience in a way that only a thunderbolt of visual emotion can.

In this live Masterclass we will learn the following valuable lessons:


  1. Creative Vision. 
    What is it, how to get it, how to keep it and then renew it all over again and again.

  2. Creative process. 
    What you think about you bring about.

  3. Creative vulnerability and confidence.
    Learn why you need it and how to talk to you ego. Brene Brown doesn’t have all the scoop on this one, I have so many stories to share on this topic.

  4. Managing your creative power.
    Your powers are made up of creativity and business acumen. Learn how to ‘punch above your weight’ on every project.

  5. Say no to free pitching and mean it. 
    Getting real. How to get work, when to pitch, when not to pitch and generally how to ask the hard questions without cringing on the inside.

About Amanda &
Gloss Creative

Amanda Henderson has defied categorisation providing creative direction and concept development to fashion and luxury markets. Amanda is a master of brand expression, creating temporary scenography of enduring emotion. 


Through Gloss Creative as her prolific creative platform she founded in 2000, Amanda designs and executes exquisite projects, every installation breaking new ground. Gloss Creative elevates brands through creative renewal and specialise in the creation of highly emotive set and event design, runways, retail installations and temporary marquees. 


Awarded by her peers nationally, Amanda is widely recognised as a design leader who has furthered the scope of visual merchandising beyond the retail world, her visionary expressions inspiring a new generation of designers to create temporary visual emotion across multiple design platforms.  

Amanda learned early on that she could make audiences fall in love with environments simply by making them feel and experience something, memories that lasted long after the physical immersion had gone. It crystallized her long held belief that your business plan is to harness your unbridled creative force and that creative renewal is your most powerful weapon overtime. Amanda shares with us everything she has experienced and know to be true in both the creative and business reality of running a small but powerful design company.
