Lately I've been working with fabric & paint, and working on ideas, explorations, experiments for a new collection that is slowly coming to fruition.......
But most importantly I've been working on making mistakes, on pushing through the fear of not being enough, of not being "a proper artist" and all that silly chatter that we tell ourselves. Of just doing, just being, not over-thinking or constantly editing my ideas.
I've been working mentally as well as practically (& emotionally) on ways to spark new ideas, and ways to ignore the societal pressures of defining myself. •
Part of this is my own creative journey. Part of this is an outcome of sharing ideas, thoughts, concepts, possibilities with other creatives.
Part of this is working towards giving back in a way > finding ways to share with you to help you unlock the possibilities that we each all hold.
I am co-teaching a workshop, with @jo.olive.artist , that will be about some of these concepts and about a whole lot more. It's sorta hard to put into a small square everything this 2-day workshop will give.
We'll be doing Botanical Dyeing, Book Binding, Fabric Painting, Instinctual Mark-Making.... like poetry on paper & fabric. •
Early bird tickets end tonight for this workshop that will be held at Jo's beautiful studio. You can read about it on my blog, link in profile. (There's only a couple of tickets left for this special special workshop).
