Thinking Space is designed to mentor and substantiate your own practice via individual and group discussion. The aim is that you will return to your own workspaces empowered and with a renewed sense of self belief.

Michael Brennand-Wood regards courses as stalking horses for ideas. In general there’s often a core theme that we collectively address for example subtraction, re-mixing, surrealism and textiles, bespoke grounds. However, what can be endlessly fascinating on any workshop are the personal areas of research that participants bring to the group. The opportunity to share for a few days the creativity and problem-solving strategies that others employ. Collectively, many have recognised the need for a focused mentoring workshop as a forum to discuss individual work within a wider critical and supportive framework – this workshop aims to offer this opportunity. An opportunity to explore in greater depth the individual and group concerns that artists all face when trying to develop and present new work.
