Join us on a journey as you dive deep into the spiritual depths and technical intricacies of sacred geometry drawing, guided by professional artist and author, Stephanie June Ellis.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This 3 hour class is a practical and theory-based Introduction to Geometry and Sacred Art around the world exploring our relationship with nature, the cosmos, human creativity and potential.
Together we will draw upon Archetypal Forms. The Circle, Spiral, Triangle and Square channelling their mystical qualities and profound nature.
Geometry occurs in the art and crafts of cultures throughout human history, directly inspired by the rhythms and structures of life itself. Its principles are beyond time and place.
In this workshop participants will investigate principles of symmetry and tessellation. These universal principles govern growth and structure and are found in both crystalline and botanical nature.
We will discuss geometry in symbology and the planetary movements, the platonic solids theorised upon by Plato, Leonardo Divinci and Joseph Kepler and examine the key family of natural proportions.
No skills are required
Open to entry level and advanced geometers
All materials are provided
Limited to 8 people
