Workshop – Creative Practice

Developed over a number of years working in creative development, Creative practice looks in detail at the specific stages of • Creative process. • Preparation •Origination• Organisation • Manifestation • Reflection

Each of these stages have exercises and games that help participants improve their ability to develop truly authentic work. Workshops both disclose the theory and practice of creativity but also help each participant go deeper and wider into their personal creative journeys.

David’s approach to creativity, whether you are a storyteller, a painter, actor or chef, we become creative through relationships – relationships with each other, the world around us and ourselves. The process that will be explored will give the participants practical skills and tools to deepen their own practice in a secure and enjoyable way.
