Tsutefude -Message Brush Workshop with Yuki Aoba san
10am - 12pm

Tsutefude is a unique way to paint messages from the heart.
By using a calligraphy pen-brush, you can make a postcard of a short message or symbol so that it can show your heart and thoughts in such a powerful and positive way.
Come along and meet the artist Yuki Aoba on her first trip to England.  She’ll introduce this new creative style and you can make a postcard of your message. 
We have a choice of dates and locations and all materials are provided
Sat 12th May 10 am -12 pm Widcombe Social Club, Bath, BA2 6AA 
Sun 13th May 10 am - 12:30 pm & 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm Stanton House Hotel, Swindon, SN6 7SD 
Tues 15th May 1:30 - 3:30 pm Rodborough Community Hall, Stroud, GL5 3TZ

Yuki has founded the Tsutefude Foundation, of which there are over 150 Tsutefude members and 17 senior masters, who teach the technique across Japan. 
She began the technique when she suffered from bad handwriting as a child. When traditional Japanese calligraphy didn't help her writing style, she designed her own letters and alphabet. The designs and postcards she created delighted the people who received them as they created intimacy and transferred the message much better than normal handwriting.  
In Japan, Yuki decided to teach this method of design and called it Tsutefude – meaning ‘message brushing’.  
Social Dreaming 2
10am - 4:30pm

Welcome to our second Social Dreaming event in the beautiful setting of the Holburne Museum. Historically in many cultures across the world people  have engaged in the practice of sharing dreams to explore what the dreams have to offer the group. In Western culture we seem to have lost the space to receive these wisdoms.  
In Social Dreaming participants are invited to share any dreams, recent or past . The dreams and free associations to them then form the Social Dreaming Matrix. The aim is to explore and reflect on the Matrix to discover the connections that emerge between the dreams and our social selves. No previous experience is necessary.
We look forward to co-creating this event with you.
Lunch is included in the ticket price.

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
18th April - 13th June

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
