Inks and Ochres: An introduction to foraged colour
"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."
"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!"
"I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful day yesterday . It was really enjoyable, and I love my basket and ball!
It was great to meet you and learn more about sacred geometry.
It was a very welcoming and relaxing environment and the other students were all lovely.
Thank you again"
"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."
