About the event
Our two facilitators will guide you through the session.
Monika Cilmi – Artist, author, creative healer at colouryourdream.co.uk.
Monika is a professional artist specializing in Asian art with a long experience teaching and working with origami. She use her creative skills and holistic knowledge to link art with mindfulness.
Origami is a Japanese word literally meaning “folding paper”. It is an ancient art form that only use one piece of colourful paper folded into many different shapes such as animals, flowers, containers and much more. They are little beautiful sculptures inspired by nature that symbolise transformation through folding into a three dimensional sculpture.
You will be embellishing your origami with a unique ‘’tangle’ which will be added before the paper is folded.
The drawing will follow a mindful drawing method called the Zentangle Method.
At its core, Zentangle® is a method of creating abstract art through structured patterns. It’s a simple yet powerful way to relax and focus. You only need three tools to start: a pencil, pen, and a piece of paper.
There’s no right or wrong in Zentangle; it’s all about embracing and incorporating any unintended marks into your creation. You will add some tangles to your paper before producing your origami sculpture. Your origami will be uniquely yours.
You will be guided by a Certified Zentangle Teacher from Element Box.
