There are currently no studio workshops booked for 2018, but a few other opportunities locally & around the country…
18 September: Weave or Stitch a Prayer: A Creative Quiet Day at Sacrista Prebend, Southwell
Psalm 91 tells us that “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” As autumn approaches, come and spend some time resting & creatively exploring our natural dwelling place with God.
Using a series of textile art pieces, we will consider & reflect on different ways of looking at how as Christians we might “dwell”. This will include exploring “Seven Sacred Spaces” that may strengthen & help us to nurture a balanced lifestyle, providing a rhythm to our Christian lives & supporting us as we attempt to stand up & be counted. Then, using an array of fabrics, threads & stitch, there will be opportunity to either stitch or weave to consider & reflect prayerfully on what we have heard. You will be encouraged to draw closer to God as you use colours & textures to pray. We will concentrate on the process, allowing us to draw closer to God rather than on a finished, polished product. The day will be experiential, with input, space for reflection and gentle guidance in practical exploration of techniques. All workshop materials will be provided
