Native American Medicine Wheel and Shields

Please note, NEW DATE: 26th-28th August 2022

Fri 7.30-9pm, Sat & Sun 9.30am-5pm

a weekend workshop facilitated by John Playfoot

The Native American shield was more than just a protection. It was a powerful statement of identity, dreams, and visions. In contrast, the Medicine Wheel, an archetype found in many cultures, connects us to something greater than ourselves, bringing orientation and centring. Working with nature and art, and through the creation of our own individual shield, we will explore these two archetypes. 

No previous artistic experience is required. All materials will be supplied.

John Playfoot is a practising art therapist and artist, he has been researching mandalas, working therapeutically with them and running workshops on the theme for a number of years.

The illustrated presentation on the theme, on Friday evening, is open to the public.
£160 (£140 conc.) for the workshop, incl. the talk
£10 for the talk only

To reserve a place, a non-returnable deposit of £30 is required. To book, please contact: 07762 704738,, or follow this link
