11-12 AUGUST

INUITIVE PAINTING WITH NATURAL MATERIALS

9 - 12 AM

JORD & BORD Ornahusen, Sweden (barn)

Together in this beautiful setting we will explore creativity with natural dyes made from plants and natural pigments on paper.

During the intensive weekend we will explore in depth how to access our creativity inspired by the beautiful surroundings, our own imagination as well as drawing from mindfulness practices. We will complete a series of various exercises in groups and individually to be able to access the more playful parst of our psyche and allow the creative flow to move through us. It will be fun and engaging. Practically the idea is to explore different ways of connecting to drawing and painting through gestural painting, quick sketches outdoors (weather permitting) and to explore the potential of natural colours such as mineral pigments and vegetable colours on paper. We will play mindfully for two mornings. We will offer some vegan snacks and refreshments. Our hosts are a wonderful vegetarian restaurant and there will be a chance to eat lunch there after the workshop and go for walks (price for restaurant not included).

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as experienced practicioners in the field of art.

4 MARCH

CREATIVE ALCHEMY:

EXPLORING SELF EXPRESSION THROUGH DRAWING

with Secret Yoga Club

3 to 6pm

Amhurst Road, East London

We’ll be working as individuals and groups to discover our own creative patterns and see how we can adapt these to explore and reflect on our inner emotions and experiences. Using a range of materials, we’ll develop our attention through intuitive drawing, Mandalas and collective expression.

This workshop is open to everyone, especially those who don’t consider themselves artists.
