Christmas Mindful Marbling

What you'll do

It's so hectic at Christmas, as an artist & meditator I created this experience is an antidote to the seasonal stresses. I guide my guests towards the calm beauty of serendipity, surrendering to life's present moment & moving into the psychological wellbeing of the creative "flow state" via the ancient mediative art of Japanese ink marbling.

Not only will my guests leave the workshop relaxed & with a new creative skill set they can then replicate at home, but will also have prints & their own ceramic tree decoration to take home.

The experience starts with a warming cup of camomile tea & a brief history of marbling. After which I guide my guests through a group meditation specially designed to enhance our feeling of wellbeing & prepare us to enter the relaxing flow state of creativity.
Following on from the mediation is a practical demonstration of all the marbling techniques. Guests are then invited to experiment in the relaxed supportive environment of my home to create individual works of marbling art using all materials supplied.
When guests are ready I teach how to transfer the creations onto paper & ceramic. Enabling guests to create unique individual prints to take home and display, along with a marbled ceramic Christmas tree decoration for your christmas tree.

I'm a surface designer and have also been practicing meditation for over a decade. I studied at Glasgow School of Art and came across the art of Japanese marbling after moving to beautiful Brighton. I instantly fell in love with this relaxing ancient technique. It perfectly merges art and crafts with the mediative practice of mindfulness.

Lisa was an amazing host and teacher. The meditation at the start really helped settle into a relaxed zone. Learning the marbling technique was a great experience in collaboration and following the movement of the water. Would highly recommend it!

Wonderful experience for a mother daughter bonding weekend. Loved everything, really calm, enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommend to others. Refreshments, light meditation starter, creative marbling, finishing with your own prints to take home, what's not to love. Thank you so much Lisa Xxx

Lisa was warm and inviting. My family and I felt instantly at ease in her presence. We started with a warm cup of tea and a beautiful guided mediation that was personalised just at the right level for my husband children who haven't experienced mediation before. We then played with the wonderful technique of Japanese marbling. As complete novices to this, Lisa was a great teacher and guide, we came away with some fantastic art that we are very proud of. As my boys are teenagers I struggle to find things we can do as a family, but this experience was perfect and we all absolutely loved it.
