The very first CreativeMornings/Portland hosted the absolutely wonderful Kate Bingaman Burt.

Kate brings to life the idea of Automated Directives in projects, establishing rules to guide creativity, through her lovely work from drawing all of her credit card statements until the debt was paid to whimsical drawings of her daily purchases. She offers up her story, process, tips and the work of others, encouraging us to get out there and make.

The event was generously hosted by Ziba and sponsored by Scout Books and Museum of Contemporary Craft. Many thanks to Paul Searle for shooting and editing this video.
