Big Brush Mind

With Barbara Bash

July 20 - 22, 2018

Program is fully booked

A three day immersion into the world of brush and ink.

We will explore the ancient Chinese principles of heaven, earth and human in the making of a brushstroke – first with small brushes to ground and connect, then with large brushes and buckets of ink, creating spontaneous marks while held in ritual. The world of pictograms, responding and mapping a moment, being in improvised dialogue with our life will all be investigated.

An interest in visual language and movement is the only prerequisite. For more information check out this video of the Big Brush practice.

If you would like to arrive the evening of the 19th and stay overnight please contact [email protected].

Please note: There is a $25 materials fee that will be collected at registration.
