Bursting Through Creative Block

with author illustrator Jane Porter

1 October 2022

13:00 – 17:00

Every creative person sometimes goes through ‘stuck’ periods – times when the work doesn’t flow, when you feel bereft of ideas, or don’t know where to start. Whether you’re an artist, illustrator, writer or musician, blocked patches are a natural part of the creative cycle, and part of what recharges you for the creative bursts to come. However these times can also be demoralising, particularly if they seem to have been going on for a while.

Join author and illustrator Jane Porter online on Saturday 1st October from 1-5pm BST for an afternoon of playful exercises designed to get your creative juices flowing again and put the fun back in to your work. We’ll also be looking at ways to keep things creative going forward.

You’ll be sent a list of materials to have handy two weeks before the event.
