Sunday 12th May 2019, 10.30am -
In this workshop we will first spend time exploring stories and images of mythical beasts and dragons in Eastern and Western traditions.
From here we will move into a meditative journey – using imagination and visualisation we will capture some of the shapes and textures of these intriguing creatures. We will also collect textures outdoors from the woodland surrounding the workshop space.
Once we have caught some glimpses, we will work with paint, pencils, ink, clay and other materials to create our own collection of fantastical beings.
