One-day Workshop: “Art and Life: Where they Intersect”
How does making art generate new ideas? During this one-day workshop
Chris Staley will share a myriad of techniques he uses while making pots.
In the spirit of open interaction, he will also share insights on different ways we can approach the creative process.

How do we learn to notice what we notice?
How can questions become the answers?
Can we teach ourselves to be more creative?
How do we embrace the notion of chance?

These questions and more will be addressed during this one-day workshop. Chris will also give a slide talk titled “Art and Life: Where they Intersect.”
