Yesterday, tomorrow and Friday we have awsome costume workshops with Riitta Inkonen and Marie O'Connor!
These are super useful in terms of thinking and creating. Yesterday we went round the class and explained our primary needs and costume designs. It became obvious that thinking needed to extend past what things/doing you 'need' to WHY that is. For example, people said a primary need was their laptop, when really it's company, communication, information, comfort.
These two ladies give such good advice and input. I feel like we would improve as people if they were around more.
We did exercises like drawing ideas and connections from a word from our list of needs for five minutes solid, on paper stuck to the wall, fast. Or getting in groups and acting out a word, and the rest of the group had to guess what the word was.
