Part of: Educating Creatively Conference

Past event

Presenters: Clive Holtham & Monica Biagioli

In almost every area of life, whether in the arts or workplaces or homes, we all develop knowledge and insights which are private to ourselves as individuals. But even for our own private purposes it is important to be able to develop these mental ideas, and make them tangible. This is most usually done through writing and drawing. Much modern research is devoted to methods that can improve mental ideas being made physical, in coming to life. This session, which requires no expert skill, will:

Firstly, involve participants making (from one piece of paper) a folded leaflet,
Secondly, being provided with prompts to make some of their own ideas come to life.
Finally, being guided on how to keep using this method in a wide variety of ways.
