Bill Forchion will facilitate two workshops at the New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA) spring workshop weekend Sunday, April 23, 2017. The first workshop: "Mask making 101: Face Casting" will have Bill paired with Kali Quinn to pass on the skill and technique of making a face cast for use in the mask making process. Students will leave the workshop with the face casts they have made. For the second workshop Bill will be teaming up with Billy Higgins for "Creating space for creative genius". Creating space for creative genius is a workshop designed to access new ways to tap into the creative genius in all of us. Workshop participants will leave with practical tools and technique for the creative process. Refining and attuning our ability
to create with genius is a trainable skill set, moving the seeds of
creative work that makes an impact from lucky phenomenon into regular
practice. For more information on the workshops check out the NECCA website.
