Advent Workshop


Art is about using the physical substances of paint, paper, clay to encapsulate something more than just the physical. This reflective workshop will open up the invitation to explore more deeply the mystery of the Incarnation (‘God-Spirit’ embodied in human form) through the medium of art-making.

The day will include some brief inputs, space for making, reflecting and gentle sharing. All materials will be provided with guidance and demonstrations on how to work playfully and creatively with them.

We will enter into the gift and mystery of the Advent season through creative exploration and response, working with the everyday object of the bowl.

Beginning with wondering about what a bowl means/symbolizes for us; exploring work of artists who have drawn inspiration from the simple form of vessels and bowls; leading into time for our own creative investigation, exploration and response; and, drawing the workshop to a close with space to share what has emerged and spoken through this time to play, make and respond.

No prior experience needed just curiosity and an openness to explore!
