Press Play for Creatives in Craft and Design

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

21 Sep 2021 to 12 Oct 2021 Once Only Event

Australian Design Centre has joined forces with MakeShift to present online workshops that give creatives practical and playful skills that can be used every day to improve or maintain their mental health and self-care.

This four-part series explores the challenges we face, tools that can be used to support us through them, and how to foster our mental wellbeing on a day-to-day basis, as well as get playful with a different creative practice, led by an artist facilitator as part of each session.

Each workshop is 90 minutes and delivered online to be accessible to participants around Australia.

Workshops are hosted Tuesdays 12pm-1.30pm (AEDT):

• Session 1: Michele Elliot, Slow Stitching / Micro Practices for Wellbeing [Tues 21 Sept]
• Session 2: Helena Fox, Creative Writing / The Inner Critic [Tues 28 Sept]
• Session 3: Sally Ann Conwell, Illustrator and Painter / Creative Safety [Tues 5 Oct]
• Session 4: Mel Young, Creative Journaling / Radical Self Care [Tues 12 Oct]

The Press Play participation fee is normally AUD400 and Australian Design Centre has subsidised this to make the workshop more accessible and affordable for the craft and design community.

When: 21 September – 12 October, Tuesdays 12 -1.30pm
Tickets: AUD110 – each participant receives a materials pack before the program with a writing notebook, stitching kid, journal and pens, poscas, pencils.
