Meeting Mythical Beasts - Drawing and Painting Studio

About Meeting Mythical Beasts - Drawing and Painting Studio

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.

About Margaret & Blair
The day will be led by Margaret Kerr and Blair Thomson. Margaret is a mindfulness teacher, counsellor and mountain leader working outdoors with groups regularly, with her own art practice working with trees, water and the land, and will lead us outside. Blair is an artist and meditator, a member of Glasgow Zen Group who studied Sho calligraphy and markmaking in Japan with Master Wakabayashi.

No previous experience of meditation, markmaking or calligraphy is needed and all materials are provided. There is a one hour lunch break – please bring your lunch or some to share. Waterproofs and walking boots or wellies are recommended.

Please contact us to book your place or for more info.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Meeting Mythical Beasts - Drawing and Painting Studio are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
