I have never done illumination before
Not to worry. I have been teaching newbies for many years and will be with you every step of the way. Most people are very surprised at what they can achieve in their first illumination lesson.

I believe that keeping this beautiful art form alive is very important, so I want to teach you and help perpetuate this time honoured tradition. I also see how illumination can be used to help you. As a gentle, meditative practice; it calms the mind and helps you to focus. In a busy, digital world… it is important to take time out for yourself, make something tangible and connect to your inner creativity. Most of all, the act of creating the beauty for yourself, helps to restore your own inner balance.
