It’s a magical talent that suddenly appears out of the blue. A lightning bolt. That only comes to a very few chosen ones.
Like it couldn’t happen to you.
Well that’s a myth.
The truth is that creativity is a muscle. It needs to be exercised. It needs to be fed. Every. Single. Day.
It needs to try a million and one “meh” ideas before focusing in on the one really fantastic and brilliant one that makes you feel like you have super powers and keeps you up at night. It’s learning how to recognize the idea that should be followed and how to take it down the path that turns it into your next favourite finished object.
Creativity is not just for making beautiful things. It’s about solving problems by looking at them from different angles…perfect skills for fixing your knitting errors or finding solutions for running out of yarn, modifying patterns, adjusting for gauge and so much more. It’s about learning to truly understand how stitch patterns work and how to adapt them. It’s about gaining colour confidence and learning to trust your instincts.
It’s about learning what makes you stop yourself from trying new ideas and skills, and giving you skills to take your ideas to the next level.
When asked what former students most wanted to learn from me, the most common answer is always “I want to understand what happens in your brain.”
Well now you can. Come take the workshop on March 28, and see what’s inside your brain too:
