The Lanna Cotta Method is a style of workshop/meeting that involves a structure. Check-ins, biographical facts about a related artist and contextual notes about their work as relating to the exercise, the exercise, reflections, and closing time.
I imagine each facilitator has their own ideas about how to present these structural elements to fit their purpose and their participants. When I run the exercises, I generally use a ten minute timer unless the exercise calls for carving the time I want to spend certain parts.
I have made a youtube video demonstrating the way I execute this kind of workshop/meeting, using Zoom and google slides. Click here.
“I’m confused. Is it called Lanna Cotta or Webinara and why does it have a name?” A bit of history of Lanna Cotta. In March 2020, the world changed. I lost my two part-time jobs. To stay active, I created a creative exercise group. My original idea was to name the cohorts. I imagined so much interest that we would have small groups. Now, it’s more of a drop-in scenario. I have also changed the name from Webinara to Lanna Cotta to be more google-able. Webinara, was taken by another company. I was inspired to make a name that was similar in that it had an Italian food-dish and a computer-related pun (think: LAN– local area network– a cotta, like panna cotta, the delicious dessert).
