Imagination club founders: Andy Whittle and Jeffrey Baumgartner

About the Imagination Club

The Imagination Club was started off by Andy Whittle and Jeffrey Baumgartner so long ago, they are not exactly sure when it started, but they think it might have been in 2007. Or maybe earlier. At the time, both were involved in training and facilitation to some extent and used the new Imagination Club as a platform for trying out their techniques. They also invited friends to use the club for the same purpose. Our initial audience was friends and friends of friends.

 Soon, friends were telling friends and the club grew and grew. Nevertheless, the basic concept of a short, experimental, 90 minute workshop on Wednesday evenings has not changed.

Occasionally, Andy and Jeffrey play with other ideas like Serious Waffle Sessions, walks and social meet ups. You can learn more about our activities on the What We Do page or, better still, you can scroll down the page and subscribe to our mailing list to ensure you are invited to all of our activities!
