This workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to become a bit more creative this year but feels stuck in a rut and in need of inspiration! To find hope and satisfaction in the process and the making. A positive, motivational gathering-for all levels and abilities-where we encourage each other to go forward and recover our crafty mojo!
Kath will bring inspiration from books such as 'Steal like an Artist' by Austin Kleon and 'Craftfulness' by Davidson and Tahsin. We will talk about what holds us back from making things and how good it is for us when we get going.
Together we will have a go at some creative journaling, painting, modelling and lettering. We will use play dough, paint and other medium in playful ways. The idea is to enjoy the process and to come way invigorated and ready to approach 2019 with 'Craftful' motivation!
