The Manual of Creative Thinking, targeted to craftsmen, apprentices and trainers of the craft sector and creative industries, has been published on the website of the project Handmade Creative Thinking (LLP Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation).

The Manual is the result of an adaptation of the innovative method “The Capture System” developed with children in the United Kingdom to an adult target of the creative industries and Vocational Training. The adaptation and development of the Manual has been made after two years of research and testing with the target groups in the three participating countries: Italy, United Kingdom and Malta.

This Manual, which stimulates the creation of new ideas and overcoming of mental blocks, is designed both as a guide for those who want to learn independently, and for those who want to practice exercises in a group (in a class or a team within a company).

The Manual is available in three languages (Italian, English and Maltese) on paper copies which could be taken from partners’ offices or in digital version which can be downloaded from the web site

The presentation of the Manual will be held at European level in a dissemination seminar on the 10th October in Bologna, and locally on the 22nd of October at the Tenth anniversary of CESIE, along with a session of Creative Thinking.

To request more information, to receive hard copies or to participate in the local seminar, please contact Angela Martinez: angela.martinez@cesie.org
