Learn the alchemy and processes involved in making your own set of watercolour and gouache paints. The roots, berries and minerals that we will be precipitating, grinding and binding, all have layered correspondences that link to the planetary archetypes.
Using compasses and straight-edge we will create mandalas that also resonate with the planetary patterns.
The symbolism and character of colour in different traditions will be explored as we apply our paints to patterns to reveal works of dazzling beauty to adorn the home and nourish the soul.

What's included in the price?

All materials included.
Local organic cooked lunches and accommodation can be booked directly with Emerson College - please get in touch for more details.

Wonderful week of exploring ancient techniques and creating from the earth. Loved exploring the planetary connections through the patterns and colours. I came away with a freshly discovered love of compass and ruler - a huge change from my recent work!

Absolutely delighted with the experience and the results. So looking forward to joining more courses with Daniel and the Sacred Art of Geometry.


great, maybe could have got a bit more covered/done - starting times stretched somewhat, but then again that is part of the charm!
Daniel was an excellent host, very generous providing coffee and healthy nibbles.
lovely location.
great to get back to the 'old way' of doing things i.e properly.
