Crafting a Sustainable Creative Practice: Workshop with Melody Vaughan
February 18 @ 10:00 - 13:00
In this practical workshop Melody will lead you through the process of auditing your creative practice – looking at how sustainable your work is (for you) and the impact it has on other people and the planet. This will help you work out what a sustainable practice means to you, to identify the areas you’d like to work on, and the steps you can take now to develop a responsible making practice.
Suitable for all contemporary craft makers, or those with a keen interest in a sustainable arts practice, the workshop includes refreshments and a sit down lunch.
“I really appreciated the space to be with my peers and colleagues in a supportive way. I took away a sense that we are all just trying our best in a slightly out-dated and imperfect system, which I believe is where your strength is Melody; you are pioneering and leading the discourse in openness and sharing the reality of making, not the fantasy, and I really see that from this space you are enabling us all to redefine the craft space on our terms, by just being really honest about needs and a good dose of reality checking. ” Imogen DiSapia, weaver
