I Wonder What Would Happen If I...
A two- to three-day workshop
Perfect for a retreat setting
Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
You are working on your beadwork and all is going along as expected when a
thought crosses your mind: "I wonder what would happen if I.....?" You try
to imagine how your idea might pan out. After all, the idea was good
enough to cross your mind but you can't picture the results. Usually you
don't try your idea as you can't predict the result in your mind's eye,
and another possibility drifts from consciousness. Does this sound like
you? If so, you have a lot of company. You rarely take the time to explore
an idea when you can't "pre-imagine" the outcome. You can't pre-imagine
the idea because you haven't tried it. Quite a "catch 22," isn't it?
NanC Meinhardt's workshop is a chance to spend three days within that very
haunting question, "I Wonder What Would Happen If I....." This workshop is
designed to explore where your beadwork goes when expectations are laid
aside, chances are taken and possibilities are found. NanC will begin the
workshop by providing a beading assignment. Over the next three days, your
beadwork will evolve each time NanC asks you to respond to many variations
of "I wonder what would happen if I.....?" Neither she nor you will know
the results of these challenges until you try them. You may be surprised
the way your beadwork evolves, you may find out you like some of the
ideas, you may find out that others do not work for you. Three days to
discover that exploration dedicated to the musings of your mind is a
project within itself.
Remember the last time that time flew and you had no idea where it went?
Well, here is another opportunity to lose yourself in "creative time."
Come join us and find out "what would happen if I....." together.
