An exhibition of figures intuitively crafted by ‘The Circle of Creative Healing’ –
between 2nd and 30th November 2019 NOW EXTENDED UNTIL 14th DECEMBER
Upstairs at Studio 38, Triq is-Suq (off St George’s Square), Victoria, Gozo – Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 10am – 2pm
A group of artists and others started to get together around six months ago to explore the relationship between art, nature, healing and intention. Through allowing space to reveal connections and wisdom these nature spirits emerged. They are formed using driftwood, shells, beads, feathers, vintage fabrics, ribbons and sometimes items which are particularly meaningful to their creator or intended recipient. Each has a hand-made clay, fabric or metal face which gives character to the figure and brings it to life. The nature spirits all have a unique energy and a special message to pass on.
Art Doll making links the realm of creativity, dream, past memories and forgotten glimpses of our true nature. Our ancestors called them spirit dolls, spirit keepers and medicine dolls. Following the tradition of indigenous cultures and tribal women’s gatherings we can connect to the earth and spirit in a truly creative and meaningful way.
There will be an informal Nature Spirit Making Workshop on Saturday 9th November from 10am-noon at Studio 38 where participants can create their own nature spirit. All materials provided and cost is €15 per person. Places are limited so pre-booking essential. During gallery opening hours members of the circle may be demonstrating the process of nature spirit making.
A percentage of sales and donations from the exhibition will go to support the work of Kopin.
