This week Melody Vaughan has been busy on Instagram posting a host of information about Coaching and Mentoring in a Craft Context. Today she’s shared some info about the work that Ruth Singer and myself are doing in this area.
I worked with Melody in 2019 on a practice review of my own work, supported by a Jerwood Bursary. Those conversations sparked a shift in my work that is still ongoing. It really highlighted the value of creating a thinking space within my making practice. At that point I was about 7 years post art school and it was the ideal time to ask myself if the direction the work was heading was what I wanted.
You can read Melody’s Blog here. She produces some wonderful resources for makers which I highly recommend.
