Workshop type: Hands-on
What more fitting archetype to invite into our studios than Venus, goddess of love and beauty? But what if she enters the process too soon, when we’re in the middle of a mess? What if she’s in a “mood” that makes her impatient, fastidious or in some way detrimental to our creative process?
Join us as we explore different ways of working with this powerful archetype’s many contradictory moods. Bring paper and a pen and be ready to have some serious, purposeful fun!
