During the course of work, you may want to receive appropriate and helpful feedback. This is an area of much difficulty. Artists may be wary of exposing their work to others because they have in the past received destructive or irrelevant comments, or suggestions that slowed (or worse, derailed) valuable work.
One technique proven over time to have positive results is the Critical Response Process developed by Liz Lerman. The archetypal Process is a 60 to 90 minute session where the artist assembles an audience who will experience the work in progress. There is then a structured sequence of interactions between artist and audience, moderated by a facilitator for optimum results. I can help you organize and execute a critical response session.
