Intro
During one week in January 2015 the participants of the Who Cares? Workshop in Thailand went on a mission to destroy and create, under the lead of German artist Tabea Reulecke.
 
Reflections by participants after  Tabea Reulecke: Who Cares? workshop at Atelier Rudee

"When I learned that Tabea Reulecke was going to give a workshop in January 2015, in Bangkok, I told myself that I must join this workshop.  I was not mistaken to make that decision. This workshop gave me so many levels of understanding of my craft. The exercises we did in the first part of the workshop give me an opportunity to explore different possibilities in the making, and to remind us that there is always more than one way to make things. We should not limit the possibilities. The second part of the workshop reminded me to always be in touch to our feelings, and to fulfill my role of a maker and a part of the world community, by being responsible to myself and to the world. Seven days of workshop flew by fast, but left us with a possibility to keep growing."

"This workshop is about to know more myself through the time I've played with the materials. I've learned that the step of thinking is very important, first i have spread thoughts in my mind that struck me to creating something, then Tabea helping me to clear the mind from the familiar thinking and let me explore new way with my first simple topic 'Time Machine', I've enjoyed creating with new materials and develop the thought step by step. When the finish pieces came out, my spread concept and story just fit with the necklace I've created."

"The first part was an introduction with exercises that at the schuster-nicole-schuster-nicole-beginning-2016-2016 didn't make senses for us, but once finished, we share our results, and we learn about each other how different we are! Different views from the same thing, in my opinion it means everybody has something to tell. The later part of the workshop referred to the subject “Who Cares?”, and the question was, “What is important to you?” We were five participants, and what is important to each one of us is so different. Go deep inside ourselves and try to express our ideas through materials, try to find our personal way to work, share our ideas and put them on the table as our colleges could gave an opinion which  could be very useful. Tabea knows how to guide us on our own way to develop the project. This project could be a seed for us, a new way to work."
