Creative Play Workshop


Creative Play Workshops are guided and hosted creative play sessions for professionals and for various groups.

At the moment I have two sets of workshops:

1. Candy Play Workshop
Candy Play Workshop is a visual design play point for adults. It offers chance to play, illustrate and experiment with exciting and colorful candy and other haptic materials. Workshop includes also ministudios where outcomes of play can be photographed by phone. Candy Play gives new creative tools to create multisensory experiences and illustrations. This workshop is suitable for events also.


2. Creative Play Workshop
Creative Play Workshop is a guided and hosted visual play session for adults. During the workshops you can play with graphics, colors, shapes and multisensory materials. Workshop gives a chance to create something unexpected and to make creative experiments.


Workshop consist of three play stations: 1. Ink Play, where you are able to study different mark making methods with acrylic paint and paper, 2. Candy Play, where you can observe shapes and colors and make compositions out of candy and other haptic materials and 3. System Play, where you can create, build and design something new out of common materials from everyday life. This workshop works best for 3-15 participants at a time.


On request I also develop and host workshops for finding new creative methods in creative processes. All workshops are easy to scale for different enviroments and participants.


Play is a key to new things and thoughts. I think play should be seen as an important part of any design process or system related to human centric user experiences. Play has a great impact on your brain and it helps open doors you didn't know existed. Creative Play Workshops encourage people to discover those doors.


Play strengthens intuition. Together play and intuition are a powerful tool for making discoveries and finding inspiration. We play to learn.


Play has no rules or goals and therefore there's no fear of failure. Play itself is enough. Play can offer a great way to ease one's mind. Creative Play Workshop gives you a chance to create something unexpected, to be able to experiment, to be inspired and to be led by curiosity. To have fun!
