A day away from habitual and ‘normal’ work patterns, experimenting with materials and techniques most of us probably haven’t tried, getting our hands dirty, playing, but also working – challenging our ways of seeing, our powers of perception, our ideas about creativity, and our translation of what we think we’re seeing into objects, portraits and purely visual forms.
If you’re managing a team, of disparate personalities who need to work together collaboratively, this will put them through their paces and change the dynamics.
If you’re in a team, and you feel the way you work together could be so much better, then this will definitely help (and it’s fun!).
There are 3 ‘workouts’, each lasting 75 minutes. If we’re a large group, we’ll split into smaller groups. The groups rotate through the workouts, with relaxing breaks for coffee-lunch-tea and hopefully lively, informal discussions between each session:
The participants come away with; their shoebox, 5 clay portraits of themselves, an imaginary self-portrait and, if we’ve done our jobs right, a different way of seeing the things around them, and of seeing other people and themselves – both literally and also on a deeper, more profound level.
As their manager, you get a team with fresh perspectives and an experience which helps shift blocked or limited thinking.
Contact Michelle to book a 30 minute initial consultation about the workout days.
