The following flexible learning process  facilitated by Concettina is encouraged during the workshops:  Inspiration is presented, explore, create, make and reflect individually and/or as a small group or a larger group.  We conclude with a formal reflection time.  Scores are left in the classes but printed words will be given out where necessary.
