Event Details

Creating sacred art: a practical workshop

You are warmly invited to join Rev. Fay Barratt here at the Monastery, Manchester, for another practical and yet profound guided exploration into sacred art. This is very much a hands-on workshop. You will be creating your own sacred art.

The monthly sessions begin at 10.30am until 12.45pm, giving enough time for creating and sharing our creations. You can do the whole series from January to December or try a one off session. Classes are suitable for all abilities – beginners to professionals.

Bring forth what longs to come through you. Discover the unique sacred artist within. Connect with the universal creative force. Access the flow of life through spiritual practices. Experiment and make mistakes – often the best work arises out of a ‘mistake’. Learn practical skills to communicate visually. Try out different materials (All materials provided).

Who will teach me?

Rev Fay, who leads our monthly One Spirit Service, as well as being a vastly experienced artist and teacher, will support your individual expression of the sacred through the visual arts, working with a variety of media over the weeks including pastel, paint collage and clay.
