Using the philosophy and inspired by Jalyn’s Seeding Lab, participants are invited to activate their senses and explore from ‘nothing’, with nobody knowing where or what our union of ideas will lead to. Seeding Lab is a common space and time for curious minds to generate fresh ideas and forms; to express their innermost voices.. We invite all curious minds – anyone who has the desire to break away from routine and try something new – to join us on this journey of discovery. Please note: You should wear comfortable clothing on all sessions as we’ll be moving around quite a bit. Participants are responsible for your own pacing of the physical movements during the workshop – listen to your body. Places are limited, with priority given to registrations. More information to be announced soon. DAY 2 is FREE and open to the public.
