I am so pleased having the opportunity to present this project with Mary-Lynne. It is something new in the New Year that adds to the factor FUN and JOY in your life.
In a series of 4 workshops (one 3 hour workshop per week) you create your own Tarot deck.
It is however not compulsory to attend all workshops!
Absolutely NO ARTISTIC SKILLS NEEDED.
Paint your own Tarot in a spirit of openness, innocence and playfulness, whatever your level of artistic ability or skill.
You will create your own symbolic language in terms of imagery, shapes and colours so that the card that you have drawn takes on a deeper significance for you.
You will draw a major Tarot card from an existing deck and take a bit of time to contemplate its meaning and relevance to you. Then, after some research, you can have fun designing your own version of it in a way that makes its message even more meaningful and specific to you. You can be sure that the card you have drawn from the deck has come to you for a reason. By thinking about how to picture it you will understand it more deeply.
We will work with a variety of mixed media, including paint, pencil, collage, ink, roller, stencils, stamps, and more to create our own, ‘enlarged’ cards that you can scale down later to a conventional playing card size if you want.
*The Tarot is a pictorial representation of universal truths, presented in a sequence that mirrors the way wisdom evolves and develops through the experiences that we have in life. It draws on symbols to convey its messages. In earlier times, when most people were illiterate, symbols were universally understood and used to convey these truths. Today many of these symbols mean little or nothing to us. This is a chance to create your own unique symbolism.*
Workshops are held at The Holistic Age Studio in Limassol
