"Shrine to the Seasons”

Be part of creating a Shrine to the Seasons with Union Chapel, a collaborative contemporary icon for the 21st century. Following the traditional use of eclectic materials in creating icons, we will be exploring mixed media and collage, egg tempera, watercolour, pure pigment, acrylic paint, gilding, colour theory and glazing.

Every second Wednesday of the month artist Joanna McCormick has been running art drop in sessions in the morning at Union Chapel for the Church's Open Wednesdays.

Many wonderful artworks have been created by participants of all ages and abilities, lots of cakes and biscuits have been eaten and many cups of tea and coffee have been consumed.

Everyone has brought their unique gifts and input to the project, and we now have a collection of fabulous work. The sessions are lively and fun, with a different theme to explore each month and a wide variety of art materials to try out and experiment with.

The project is being expanded this year, with the goal of creating a series of contemporary modern icons for an exhibition at Cass Art project space in 2018 (tbc), and for permanent display at the chapel.

Come and join us on a Wednesday!
