Another chance to enjoy the Art and Prayer taster workshop earlier in the year, in case you missed it first time around!

This workshop combines practical artwork, image, music, word and silence: no artistic experience is needed. All are welcome … wherever you are on your spiritual and artistic journeys.

It is not about learning to draw or paint, but about how to use art as tool to listen and pray in a non-verbal way. Also, being artistic is not a restriction for these workshops!

Sharing reflections on the theme and the work of the session is encouraged, but no one will be forced to speak, if they that feels uncomfortable or inappropriate.

The workshop will take its starting point from the reading, Isaiah 43:1-5 – ‘I have called you by name’ – a passage that speaks of identity, vocation and journeying.

AN ART AND PRAYER WORKSHOP DAY LED BY CAROL MARPLES

What is an Art and Prayer workshop day and who is it for?

It combines practical artwork, image, music, silence and word. All are welcome and no artistic experience is needed.

The workshop is not about learning to draw or paint, but about exploring how to use art as tool to listen and pray in a non-verbal way.

During ‘Touch The Earth Lightly’ sharing reflections on the theme and the work of the day will be encouraged, but no one will be forced to speak if they feel uncomfortable.

The workshop will reflect how we are touched by Creation, celebrating this wonderful world that we have been gifted while noting the traces and marks our lives leave upon it for good or ill, something that is particularly important in this time of climate crisis.
