Eyglo reviewed: Alchemy of Pigment and Pattern at SAOG Studios

"I loved this course! The tempo was good and there was a good balance between pigment and pattern. The teaching comes from deep wisdom and knowledge. SAOG Studios is 360 degree impressions of beauty and mystic knowledge - very stimulating. You create a soft atmosphere and are very good listeners and teachers. A great week that brought many elements of life into one."

Katie reviewed: Alchemy of Pigment and Pattern at SAOG Studios

"It has been such an amazing week! I have learnt so many things about colour and the alchemical process. I so enjoyed the geometry meditations at the beginning of each day. Both Daniel and David added intriguing stories, poems and information that made the course so unique. I'd recommend to anyone!"

David J Lilly reviewed: Weaving the cosmos: sacred geometry and hexagonal weave basketry

"An interesting day that took us to places we had not suspected we'd go. Richie and I agreed it was a fun experience, we made some lovely connections with other participants, and we were both (eventually) happy with what we created."
