'TAW - An Introduction' Workshop details
'What's it all about?'
In this one-day workshop, we'll take a first step into Julia Cameron's 'The Artist's Way', the well-loved and long-established program of self-care and recovery.
‘How can it help me?'
The workshop has three aims:
To help us make a teensy bit of space for ourselves so we can forget about life for a while;
To see that creativity need not be 'perfect' or demanding, expensive or extraordinary. It's not a luxury solely for the educated or elite, it's for everyone;
To rediscover the painting or knitting or instrument-playing or writing or (insert as needed) creative thing that made you happy in the past.
'What's involved in the workshop?'
We'll touch on four of the main principles this 12-week program examines, and talk a little about how they appear in real life. We'll use fun and easy crafts to show that even a tiny bit of creativity stretches time, allowing us forget about life for an hour or a day, and maybe even cope with life a bit better. No skills required!
'Who's this for?'
Anyone who wants to reclaim a little space for themselves, creative or otherwise! All adults are welcome, whatever your age or your past, occupation, or experience. Most of us are extremely busy and could do with a few easy tools to get away from it all;
Anyone who wants to do the full 12-week program (I'll be running that from January 2019), this workshop can help you decide if you want to proceed;
Anyone who wants to actively pursue a creative business or career, consider this workshop a safe first step.
No need to buy the book (the book is necessary only if you do The Artist's Way 12-week program), but if you have it at home and want to bring it in, feel free.
The Artist's Way - An Introduction is an adults-only workshop.
Important! Please bring a packed lunch for our 45-minute lunch break.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
