Description

Drawing on the success of her breakout book Conscious Creativity, artist Philippa Stanton brings her exciting and inspiring ideas to this practical workbook.

Acknowledging the power of chance and experimentation, this is a safe space in which to scribble, sketch, tear, scratch, fold, weave – anything that Philippa’s playful prompts inspire you to do. There are no rules here: choose an activity at the back of the book or start at the beginning; pick an exercise on light and shadow, paint your own colour chart or build a collage of found items, whatever makes your creative juices flow.

Packed with simple suggestions to open our eyes to the beauty of ordinary things, this workbook draws on themes including randomness, colour, texture and the senses to encourage us to connect with things we might not normally notice. Breathtaking original photography acts as a catalyst to inspire us to take a chance with new ideas, follow up coincidences and find new ways of expressing our creativity.

Conscious Creativity: The Workbook is a liberating place to be random, get things wrong and make a beautiful mess.
