    Encountering important transitions & loss through Image Making

 Creating spaces of memory and meaning

 Dr Hayley Berman

“Life is but a day;
A fragile dew-drop on its perilous way
From a tree’s summit.”
                      John Keats

In this retreat, we will journey to a place of coming closer to making loss matter through image making, in the studio and in nature. You may choose to explore losses of loved ones, disappointments, loss of identity, home, relationship. This may include the loss of a meaningful alive connection with yourself and others. We will engage between the threshold of saying goodbye and new beginnings.

With an expanded vocabulary of art materials, found objects, words and silence, we will gently allow the materials, the group, the landscape and the unconscious to lead the process.

Meditation, nature and creativity will be woven together attuning to an inner stillness and abundance of being.

Please bring a significant object that holds a meaning for you.

It would be useful to also bring any other found objects or scraps : copies of photographs,  different textures / fabric / shells / coloured paper / bottle tops / old jewellery or similar
