About this workshop:
Using pure play, guided creativity exercises and exploring our connection to nature, students will strengthen and deepen their individual and unique sense of design.
Through direct experience with new and different materials, (including, but not limited to: fabric, paper, wax, string, ink and a few surprises) students will sharpen their perceptions and give their senses a spa treatment!
Balancing both spontaneity and intention; chosing the right self-assessments, and learning from collaborations, will lead to clarity, new directions and inspirations This workshop is designed to take you down a new path to more original work.
