Connecting creatively is fundamental to the making process whether this is with materials or people to create ideas, art, communicate, learn, share, experience…….There is a great article in The Guardian by Ruth Potts – The Great British Make Off, which has inspired my post today.
“The maker begins by connecting with the material, through engagement they enter into a relationship with it experiencing a sense of flow beyond that, the maker remakes themselves. We come to know ourselves better through the process of collaboration with material”
Silver Smith – Mona Nasseri
