Growing Wings Project

Argh – we want creativity in our lives, but creativity can so easily get pushed to the fringes of busy lives. Even if we put time aside, a sort of paralysis can strike – What to focus on? What’s my concept? Where’s the muse? Too often we are left with a bundle of half completed projects and a mountain of insecurity – Is this good enough?

So we’ve decided to take the pressure off. Give ourselves a year of exploring with low expectations of the results, share and support each other and chuckle over the results and throw in some much needed deadlines to squash that inner-critic paralysis and procrastination.

For our 12-step program we’re going to undertake a different (simple) creative challenge each month. We’ve devised the first three months and we’ll wait for suggestions (or the muse) to choose the last nine.

Here’s our plan

July: Write a poem or story

August:  Take a photo a day, starting at 8am, and then 30 minutes later each day for the month.

September: Working with wool

October:  Black and white photography

November: Interview a creative person and create a project inspired by the interview.

We’d love you to join us and share your work

Katie and Sophie
