Workshops and conferences are such fantastic ways to enrich your art making. You leave brimming with new ideas to try, and these ideas can then morph with your own way of working and take you in a whole new direction.

In today’s post, Tracy Gamble explains how after a week-long surface symposium, she blended two artists’ techniques to take her own work in a new direction.

At one end of the spectrum, design is a process that is part of what we all do in the studio when planning to make new work. We think up ideas, define the concepts that are important, sketch pieces (in our heads, out of clay on paper, on a computer) that fit our chosen criteria, then refine the forms. During this process, in addition to considering form, we consider use, context, and audience, as well as the right tools (whether familiar or new) for the job.–Jessica Knapp, editor.
