Embodying Nature - Intuitive Painting & Meditation Course

Tuesday 10 September - Tuesday 1 October
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The classes combine intuitive painting, meditation, and writing. They provide a safe and positive space for free expression, with the aim to develop an intuitive approach to the creative process. Art is used as a tool for pure self-expression, healing, and transformation.

Participants have the chance to work on any subject, emotion or thought they wish to explore through the process. However, a general theme is always provided. A short guided meditation opens and closes the practice and helps to relax the mind and the body.

The four weeks course will focus on the connection with nature and will use the four elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air) to journey through different aspects of the Self. When we embody nature we are free to be who we are and can connect with the deepest and sacred part of ourselves. Through guided imagery, intuitive painting, and freewriting we will gently explore our lives, creating the space to let go of the old and welcome the new.

All the materials will be provided: acrylic paints, paper, paintbrushes, aprons, towels, sponges etc.

Everyone is welcome and no experience in painting or meditation is required.

Creative Meditation Classes

Thursday 19 September - Thursday 10 October
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Through guided visualisation and some creative practice, we will embrace the present moment allowing mind, body, and spirit to come into a restful state of pure alignment. The classes offer a creative approach to meditation and can include the use of different art materials. Everyone is welcome and no experience is required!

Each week we will explore a different theme and will experiment with some art material! We will start with a gentle guided meditation to connect with our creative energy, to let go of our day and relax. Then we will move into our art practice where you will have the chance to explore any feeling, situation or thought that is there for you on the day. We will close our class with another short meditation to resettle ourselves and get ready to move back into the outside world.

Expect drawing, stone painting, clay modeling, collage and much more!

Informed by a collective of memories from one family home, my practice is an exploration of how I can translate specific personal moments through the process of painting.

“Memories of pleasure, pain, sadness and joy, are the common thread that unites all human beings. Memories are our existence, and art is their system of replication.” (Farr 2012)

A chosen memory is always the stimulus. Developing shapes and forms from initial drawings, my paintings reflect the sensations felt while unpacking the memory, through a specific texture, a precise colour or a particular noise. The drawings vary from memory to memory; sometimes they require a different type of mark or restraint for me to develop the outcome. Shape is an extremely important element in my work. I believe that developing specific shapes, relating to individual objects and spaces (which are often suppressed beneath layers in the painting) harmonises with the mysterious workings of our minds.

MYO Cloth Sanitary Pad - Join the Zero Waste Revolution

Saturday 21 September
10:30 am - 12:30 pm

What are DIY Reusable Cloth Sanitary Pads?
They’re an eco-friendly alternative to single-use sanitary pads. You can make a pad that suits you best. From regular monthly ones, panty liners as back up for your moon cup, post partum or stress incontinence pads or night pads. They’re wonderfully soft, made to measure and best of all, washable, ready for using again and again, month after month, year after year. Perfect for reducing health risks, reducing your plastic use, saving money and diverting from landfill.

What will I do at this class?
Soak up the knowledge and have fun sewing our fabulous tried and tested pad design from textiles you probably already have at home. We’ve done all the research, testing and hard work so you don’t have to. What shape? Which fabrics are best? What size? How many layers? Best care options? By the end of the class you’ll take home your very own made-to-measure pad and the skills to make many more plus the knowledge to look after them.

Why take this class?
It’s empowering! Get in control of what goes next to your skin, ditch the plastic and become a more conscious consumer.
It’s healthier, you’ll be reducing your exposure to synthetic fibres, dioxins, wood pulp that’s bleached in chlorine dioxide, leaching plastics, sodium polyacrylate crystals, artificial fragrances, adhesives and chemical gels. Reducing your risk of yeast infections, toxic shock syndrome, ovarian and cervical cancer and contact dermatitis. Many users even report reduced menstrual cramps.
It saves you money, around £13/month.

Yes, it’s a small step towards reducing your impact on the planet but each step adds up to a big impact. Us girls use 12-17,000 hygiene products in our lifetime, some are incinerated, most go to landfill and some are flushed- around 700,000 panty liners, 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million sanitary towels in the UK every single day!
It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.
They make great eco gifts!

The afternoon will begin with a talk from Lewis and a discussion of his work to date. From here, he’ll teach a series of basic techniques which will be practised before we begin our final collages. All levels of experience are welcome and we’ll be teaching a range of different techniques and approaches to collage making. Refreshments will be provided in the afternoon and all materials required are included. All profits raised from this event will support the next boom project, which will use filmmaking to give a voice to overlooked and underrepresented young people in Berlin.
