Breathing the Land is an opportunity to join a small group in an experiential research project focusing on deepening our relationship to the landscape we inhabit. This 7 week art practice will incorporate a range of modalities including meditation, walking, observation, drawing, painting and assemblage. We will make use of materials from the landscape to respond to country, drawing with local ochres, dyeing paper with local botanicals, fuelling our visual responses with local research. The course will combine time out in the landscape with time spent in the Laneway Studio and participants will be encouraged to work expansively with nature over the duration of the course to refine ideas and bring them to resolution.

Course testimonials:

  • Sharing time with people, learning new and interesting things
  • Virginia is a grounded, gentle, experienced, knowledgable and inspiring teacher who focuses on process rather than outcome which I loved. Our group of ladies were wonderful. I felt at ease and started to become more confident working in new ways, with new techniques and materials. It was transformational to work actually in the environment itself but it was also great to have the studio space.
  • Virginia is a wealth of knowledge, showing us how to see our surroundings from yet another perspective and to create. The peace of the studio is a welcome relief from a busy life.
