I started teaching my creative subconscious collage workshop in 2000.
Goodness, that's 19 years ago now.
I developed the workshop based on a book, but really my workshop structure was based on words. Each word, as a prompt of sorts, would/could have it's own meaning. That meaning shifted depending on the person.
Later, in collage circle I used words as themes for the month and/or as ways to open and close a session. Just like the book I originally resourced, I found a third party source of wisdom to inspire my facilitation. This had me not making things up as I go. This kept the process of sorts grounded.
Speaking of process. It is absolutely uncanny to me how after all this time that a prompt will yield collage work that has profound insight into a particular theme or person.
All I can really add to that thought is what makes this type of collage work so so very interesting and successful over and over is trusting this process.
Below are 5 collages I just made.
For the sake of privacy I am shifting the word prompts up a bit. The words below share the same meaning:
( that's me!!)
From the making of these collages other words found me:
Those additional words also fit into the theme.
I think the collages speak for themselves.
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
