Walking the creative path
An on-going group with Sophie Waterhouse
Whether you write, paint, sing, take photographs, are someone who dreams of creating a beautiful garden or planning a new adventure, the creative path is one that presents particular challenges as well as joys.
Working on a creative project often confronts us with our inner critic. How do you maintain enthusiasm and persevere creatively when part of you casts doubt on your abilities? External criticism and rejection can also stop us in our tracks. How do you support yourself emotionally and practically in a culture in which creativity is not always valued unless accompanied by fame and fortune, rewards which, if achieved, then bring their own complications?
This group offers a regular forum for exploring creativity and finding support in being creative. Group work provides an opportunity for sharing experience with others, overcoming isolation and getting useful, constructive feedback.
The group meets at Spectrum six Tuesday evenings per term from 7pm to 9:30pm. The dates for the autumn term are Tuesdays 27th September, 18th October, 1st, 15th and 29th November and 13th December 2016.
I ask that you commit to a minimum of two terms.
The fee for the group is £225 per term.
Please call me on 07877 453477 for more information and to reserve a place. There will be a maximum of eight participants in the group.
