Each of the six Saturdays in Lent we’ll be conducting a hybrid version of quiet days and Liturgical Arts. Our schedule is as follows:
March 5th we will be painting bowls for use at the Lenten Soup suppers. YES ! Food safe bowls ! We’ll provide the bisque fired bowls and underglazes. David Wilson will perform the final firing for us.
March 12th we will stitch finger labyrinths using cloth, burlap or fabric. Finger labyrinths, like full sized walking labyrinths, are a tool for meditation.
March 19 Joy Jennings will lead us in a beginners’ class in Iconography. Icon painting follows a set of rules and utilizes special painting techniques and materials.
March 26 we will make Anglican Rosaries, learn the significance of each part and learn the proper techniques for praying with a rosary.
April 2 we will decorate Pyzanky Eggs! Decorated with carefully applied wax and dyed similar to batik fabric these eggs were not meant to be hidden !
April 9th we’ll construct water color mosaics utilizing collage techniques.
Our choice of projects has been made to blend with quiet, meditative prayer time; creating with intention.
We invite adult members and friends of our parish to join us beginning Saturday, March 5th, from 10am – 2pm, for one or all 6 of the inaugural Lenten Art days. Please note, one does not have to attend all 6 workshops to participate. Attend 1 or 2 workshops. We’re happy to have you ! We ask that reservation be made so that we can secure enough supplies for everyone. Cost for each workshop is a suggested donation of $15 each or $75 for all 6.
