Why is creativity important?
Creativity is an essential human quality, one of the things that sets us apart from most animals, and yet it is a quality that too many of us do not believe we possess. We all have it but we do not all use it. People who are in touch with their creativity are more positive, better problem solvers and are more innovative. They are also better team members.
Jo Aylwin offers team building creative workshops to help your team connect to their creativity.
What the workshops do:
The creative workshop will help people to re-connect with their creativity by making a piece of art. The group will work together with different materials, finding solutions to enable them to produce a collage made from recycled materials. Participants will be taken through a series of simple steps to enable them to do this. The outcome cannot be predicted other than to say that it will always be surprising and that it will always be positive.
The workshops are designed for groups who know each other as work colleagues and who are not generally working in what is considered a creative industry.
Workshops run between 10am and 4pm, with a break for lunch. A typical day is:
10am – assemble together. Introductions and an outline of what will happen
10.30 – brief introduction to “collage”
10.45 – exploration of materials
12.15 – re-group to discuss exploration
12.45 – lunch break
1.30 - group session to create collage
3.45 - re-group to discuss creation
4.pm - close
Costs depend on group size and where the workshop is carried out. Minimum fee is £250 which normally covers up to 10 participants, without room hire or lunch.
If your team will submit their piece to Blooming Art 2017, there will be a 50% reduction in the workshop fee.
Blooming Art is a free art competition open to people who live or work in Farnham and is part of Farnham in Bloom. Participants are challenged to make a collage and this year the theme is “Cycle”, with participants being encouraged to use recycled materials. Entries have to be submitted in June and there will be an exhibition of entries at the Maltings, Farnham, in July.
