Join us for a fun and playful workshop to revive your creative confidence in 2021. Using found objects at home, we will tap into your inner craft maker to discuss how we can create within limitations. Amanda will discuss how we can utilize limitations as artists and entrepreneurs and navigate anxieties and negative self-talk when creating. You do not have to be a ‘crafty’ person to participate.
YOU WILL LEARN
- Limitations are opportunities for creative thinking and expression
- Counter your negative self-talk
- Gain creative agility and confidence with new materials
- How being resourceful is an opportunity for creativity
- You are not alone in trying something new and a community of other creators looking to revive their creative resilience.
