We all had hands before the computer, yet with 27 bones our hands can work as mini computers! They are tools of consciousness. Come and enjoy the wonderful gift of writing in a mindful way by participating in a Calligraphy course. This course will be conducted over 10 weeks in the special space of the Design area in BFEI.
This course is geared to those participants who have done some Calligraphy in the past and wish to explore the essence of why Calligraphy was known through the ages as a spiritual skill, discovering inner calmness through an outward craft.
Calligraphy is about communication and connection; qualities that we all may have missed over the last few years! Connection with our tools, connecting with our creative selves and ultimately communicating it for ourselves and others to enjoy!
“Only you can be you
Only you can create what you will create
That is worth something
That is worth everything” (L.H.Pearce)
The course will be delivered by Siobhan Campbell..Siobhan has a keen passion to make Art and its skills accessible to as many people as possible. Calligraphy has been a lifelong passion and she believes the flow of ink mirrors the flow of life as the same elements are at play. Ether is the space where the nib meets the paper; air is the rhythm of the pen, fire is the shape of the letters, water the ink itself and paper represents the earth. “Calligraphy is a portal to the present moment”
In addition, students are reqiuired to purchase a personal kit at their own cost.
