Igniting Your Imagination

This fun and interactive workshop on creative thinking enables you to rekindle your childhood imagination and appreciate the power of your imagination. You will learn how to use your imagination to visualise new possibilities for yourself and your future, how to apply it to aid your memory, and how being creative and imaginative can help you come up with novel ideas.

Who is this course for

This workshop is for anyone who wants to exercise their creative thinking and particularly their imagination and curiosity. We are born into this world curious and in awe of it - this will help you reconnect with this way of thinking and learn ways to deepen your curiosity and stretch your imagination. These are great skills for writers, artists, would-be entrepreneurs and just about anybody.

If English isn't your first language, then you will need a good standard of spoken English to participate in fully in the activities.

What does this course cover

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:
- Use some techniques to ignite your curiosity and imagination;
- Understand the benefits of being imaginative such as having greater empathy and a more vivid memory;
- Be able to look at things and see more opportunity and possibility in them.

What will it be like

There will be a range of individual, pair and group work through the workshop. It will be fairly fast-paced and will be both interactive and participatory. You will experiment with different ways to spark your imagination and curiosity. The aim is to learn while also having fun.

What else do you need to buy or do

If you want to, you can bring something to make notes on but you will get handouts and materials.

The class will start on time so please be punctual!

It is always nice to bring some quality chocolate for the tutor.
