'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 you rediscover the painting or knitting or instrument-playing or writing or (insert as needed) creative thing that made you happy in the past.
To make a 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;
'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!
