    Julia Cameron first published her bestselling book, The Artist’s Way over twenty years ago. In it, she shares her approach to developing creativity which is based on the principles that we are all creative beings, that our creative yearnings come from a divine source and that people become creative by allowing themselves to become creative. Her approach has helped many people to overcome their blockages, improve their creativity and develop their creative practice.

    In this taster workshop, you will be introduced to Julia Cameron’s two basic tools for creativity recovery – morning pages and the artist’s date. You will also undertake exercises to help develop your creativity.
