About the Workshop

Have you ever gone for a walk and come back to your work with the answer to a problem?

Refresh and reset your busy overstressed mind with some creative production. Short exercises and games using materials from the Scrap Exchange and ARTpost will be the vehicle for making without expectation. Open to all levels from “I wish I was creative” to arts professional.
