Do you feel stuck, sad, judgemental or angry about your creative expression? Perhaps you feel all of this.
Take heart and come to Flow without Fear and be truly encouraged.
Acknowledging our fears and disappointment in ourselves is the backdrop to making free with lovely water-based paint, charcoal, ink, pastel, pencil and even collage. It’s astonishing what can appear when we trust what is ready to appear from our unconscious mind. In this winter session, we make gorgeous, joyful marks, mixing media and seeing what happens when we lose our wish for perfection.
We will be inspired by found interior objects such as patterned fabrics, flowers, ceramics and art books, seeing how we use our expressive marks to create this interior landscape. My tutoring approach is to react to you all individually, just as you are in your own creative expression, in that moment on that day.
I don’t have any expectations, therefore no judgement, just encouragement.
I know from experience it’s all about empowering you to express your own unique qualities.
“Just an incredible day. Iona was wonderful, so encouraging, accepting and willing to share herself and her process. This has been a very significant experience for me as I embark on the next stage of my life.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed this class. Felt freer than I have been in years. Fun and fulfilling…inspiring!”
An experienced art tutor of more than 10 years, I work with people of all ages and stages, from young children to older adults, many of whom feel grief and anxiety about repressing their innate creativity. I love to assist in the freeing of this creativity within. I combine my own self-employed working artist practice with teaching and leading out what is profound within us all. I am a trained therapeutic counsellor which means I extend empathy and compassion to those bravely showing their vulnerability. I know how it feels! I was the first artist in residence at Stirling Castle for Historic Environment Scotland and exhibited with several commercial galleries.
