Often in the creative process people get lost in the overabundance of choices and possibilities. This 5-day workshop challenges participants to play freely, while learning tools to structure their process and navigate the uncertainties toward a desired result.

Participants will engage a single material throughout the workshop, and will be encouraged to experiment, play and engage with this material in a hands-on manner.

While this workshop is specifically oriented to those in the creative and design professions, the idea of structuring creativity can be applied broadly in all fields where being comfortable with uncertainty is useful.

Objectives and Expected Outcomes:
