Drawing Spirituality with Celtic Knots
April 21, 2012
This is a hands-on workshop about a design that has captured the religious imagination of humanity since 6000 B.C.E. and has decorated Gospel manuscripts and Christian churches from 400 C.E. to the present day.
Anyone who can draw a dot and a line has already learned the basic key to drawing knotwork. The authentic method of drawing them is surprisingly simple and accessible. Absolutely no “artistic” experience or special aptitude is necessary.
The workshop will teach you how to draw knots, and will open you to an appreciation of their meanings and use as spiritual meditations that are easy, playful, and thoughtful.
Led by the Rev. Brian Dench, author of the The Knotty Book, and a graphic designer and former president of the Calligraphic Arts Guild of Toronto. Begins 9:30 am with gathering for coffee; ends 3:30. Fee: $25 ($15 for Associates and Oblates) if you bring a bag lunch. A hot meal is an additional $15.
