Magic of Making

Season 2

The Magic of Making

What is it that grounds us in the creative process? Why do most of us feel happier when we reconnect with our roots as Makers, if only very occasionally and even if the results are seemingly poor?

The intrinsic joy of making and the magical pull of the inanimate, in the form of Art are themes we aim to encourage students and visiting public to explore in this current season of exhibitions, lectures and workshops, in ‘The Magic of Making’.
