Blossoming with Hope from our Hearts

Weekend Mosaic Workshops with Robin R James

NEW DATES: 8th-9th Aug 2020 / Sat-Sun 10am-4pm

As we slowly emerge from our inward looking, inward living circumstances, there is an opportunity to share our new-found knowledge. An opportunity to nurture grief, heal wounds, blossom, offer hope and to open our hearts through creativity. A colourful array of materials will help you focus, thrive, and express yourselves in a blossomy way.

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

£140 (£120 conc.) – We offer a special discounted fee, when booked together with the mosaic workshop below: £230 (£200).

To reserve a place, a non-returnable deposit of £30 is required. To book, please contact: 07762 704738, info@imagine-therapeutic-arts.co.uk, or follow this link

Due to the current government guidelines, requiring physical distancing, we need to limit the number of participants for any of our workshops. If you wish to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we can accommodate as many as manageable throughout our rooms, and if the weather is good in our beautiful courtyard.

Flowing Gently Down the Stream

NEW DATE: October 2020 / Sat-Sun 10am-4pm

Water can alter and permanently change the shape of the landscape surrounding us. Under stress situations and circumstances can change the shape of our inner world. The ebb and flow of life can be one of gentle gliding, non- resistance where one proceeds easily and smoothly, or it can be fast flowing, knocking us off balance. This will be a relaxed workshop where you can find an oasis of calm through the use of mosaic tesserae and coloured sands to help you go with the flow…

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

Structure and Chaos / new dates to be announced

This Workshop had to be postponed, due to Covid-19, please get in touch if you are interested.

Sat/Sun 10am-4pm

a two day workshop with Bristol artist Nick Moore

‘Painting is like a thundering collision of different worlds that are destined in and through conflict to create that new world called the work.’

Kandinsky

Nick presents a weekend workshop of drawing and painting to explore ideas of the apparently opposing forces of structure and chaos. It will be a broad based enquiry embracing the use of symmetry, form and uncertainty, geometry and gesture…

Through structured exercises, alongside time for individual working, we will explore the richness and versatility, depth and subtlety of the paradox that lies in the tensions between structure and chaos, while engaging in a variety of mark making techniques and materials. 

An illustrated talk will be given as part of our enquiry.

No previous artistic experience is required.

Cost: £130 (£115 conc.)

all materials and refreshments included

a summer workshop facilitated by John Playfoot

“I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self I had obtained what was for me the ultimate. Perhaps someone else knows more but not I.

C. G. Jung

There are almost endless manifestations of the mandala. In this workshop, we will focus on key elements that give the mandala a relevance to our own life experience. We will be working individually and in small groups using a variety of media including wax crayons, found objects and the technique of oil rubbing.

John Playfoot is a practising artist and art therapist. He also teaches and runs workshops. He has been researching mandalas and working therapeutically with them for a number of years.

Cost: £245 (£220 conc.)

all materials and refreshments included
