WORKSHOP – BOOSTING CREATIVITY: CREATIVE TROUBLESHOOTING

Dawn Oakford will lead this Workshop in exploring imaginative, innovative and inspired ways of continuing to work with clay.

During the course of this one-day, hands-on workshop, participants will explore several strategies to keep their creative juices flowing through group discussions and practical exercises. They will be encouraged to think differently about the techniques that they use, the possibilities of working with others, and how to best convey the concepts that motivate and inspire them. It is also hoped that those taking part will gain more confidence in their abilities to work in a much more intuitive way with clay.

Another outcome of this session may well be the formation of small support and/or working groups to help each other prepare for upcoming exhibitions, resolve production impasses and organize professional development events.

Those taking part are asked to think about & if possible bring along an example of their work or a prototype that they’d like to develop or resolve.

PROGRAM FOR THE DAY

  • Introductions
  • Discussion & listing of individuals’ “creative stalemates”.   Possible approaches will be discussed towards the end of the session.

  • LUNCH – Please bring along a plate to share.  Tea, coffee and juice will be provided.
