You guys when I was invited to be a guest teacher on the year long course “Art Walk Alchemy” with the 2019 theme of “Totems and Talismans” how could I resist! I mean the thought of it made me swoon!
We all want to create from our soul, things that are special to us, give meaning to our lives…make each moment special. To me that is what totems and talismans are all about 🙂 They are symbols of the things we hold dear and the beliefs we uphold. For me the spirit world embodies all those things.
This is a year long course that is all about those ideas, objects, and emblems that represent something significant in our lives. You get 24 lessons (plus several bonus lessons!) that incorporate literal or metaphoric representations in the form of assemblages; journaling; jewelry; masks; watercolor, pastel, and acrylic painting; mono-printing; explosion boxes; collages; spirit dolls; and mixed media.
The lessons will be taught by 24 stellar working artists whose art you know and love. This course is suitable for all artistic levels so don’t be shy about joining us. Scroll on down to see who all these artists are 🙂
In my lesson we will create a gorgeous “sacred earth bowl”. Your bowl will encapsulate the spirit of mother earth and the faery realm, or as I like to call it the “otherworld”. We will use air drying clay, recycled copper wire, scraps of sari silk and small glass and metal beads to embellish our piece. The colours will be those of the earth elements, fire, water, air, you choose what resonates with you.
This lovely bowl was created with the water and earth elements as the basis. She is my prototype for the course, the bowl I will film for my lesson will be almost identical, I’ll probably choose different colours and beads, but this is the bowl style I will be demonstrating.
To celebrate this wonderful theme of Totems and Talismans I am giving away this gorgeous bowl! Simply scroll to the bottom to find out how to enter 🙂
