Do you have a visual art project or practice that you want to stretch a little further? Are you beginning a project and want to participate in a supportive ‘sounding board’ environment with other creative thinkers and makers? Do you get stuck developing your work?


In this lively, ideas-based workshop you will build your repertoire of creative problem solving techniques to develop ideas for your project/practice over a period of three sessions. Feedback frameworks will be provided to help you develop and analyse your ideas and to practice your evaluation skills in a friendly, supportive and engaging environment.


Participants need to bring recent work/s (digital or analogue) with them at each session.

Comments from participants in idea development workshops Deborah delivered earlier this year:


  • I enjoyed Deborah’s ease at which she facilitated the workshop, made it easy to interact, relax and participate.

  • Making thinking fun!

  • Wonderful, non-threatening approach.

  • Good mix of activities, interactive and thought provoking.

  • I think it’s a fantastic idea/opportunity to help develop intellectually my practice, after leaving art school this sort of thing is really hard to do/find. More please!

  • Objectives were clear. Encouraged me to consolidate ideas and direction. I like the interactions, appreciate the honesty and humour.

  • Fast paced, dynamic presentation of exercises that stimulate critical process in forwarding ideas. A series of exercises that get you thinking creatively about my practice.

  • Highly personable, relaxed but highly professional. Created an environment that felt safe/comfortable yet challenging.
