Creativity is not just about making art/music/movement/food etc.
It is about the ability to make something out of what you have, not making excuses that you can’t because you don’t have the time/materials/studio.
I had a very real test of this recently. I went away without my two trusted companions, my dog and my journal. This really had me in a tailspin, I ALWAYS have my sketchbook with me, it’s where I go when I feel shaky, and I was pretty shaky.
It’s funny how it goes though, instead of obsessing over what I didn’t have, I became open to other possibilities.
The creative goddess was smiling. I found a stack of books left for folk to enjoy, this, by the way, is in a tiny village in rural France, not the most likely places for creative scavenging.
Using just this book, scissors and a crusty old glue stick I found I immersed in a creative frenzy.
These images are the results.
Workshop details coming soon
