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.
6:00 pm - 7:00 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.

Join boom saloon on Sunday the 22nd of September for a very special collage making workshop, as part of the Edinburgh International Magazine Festival.
We’ll be joining forces with hand cut collage artist Lewis Burden to teach the basics of collage making – covering everything Lewis wishes he’d known from day one alongside a wealth of handy tips and tricks. The workshop will also touch on one of the publishing industry’s biggest issues: waste. We’re delighted to collaborate with Magfest to utilise a selection of Scotland’s finest magazines as source material, showcasing their potential for creating lasting works of art to cherish forever.
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.
Please note, this workshop will involve the use of sharp implements; by attending you accept all risks associated with their use.
