Being Creative: Tools in how to maintain creativity and overcome blocks

Do you ever have those times when creativity seems to have left the room? The muse is on holidays and the blank paper/canvas/screen in front of you becomes a daunting prospect? If so, then this workshop is for you. 

The workshop offers highly practical methods, tips, and techniques that support creativity. It emphasises discipline and commitment to ongoing learning and focuses on both Process and Structure in the act of creating. Miriam Logan facilitates participants through the following aspects of her creative empowerment course which she has adapted from her practice as both an artist and an empowerment trainer.
