2018 UK Conference


2018 Conference of the Anthroposophical Art Association

August 31st to September 2nd at Glasshouse College, Stourbridge, hosted kindly by the Ruskin Mill Trust.

This conference will be open to anyone with an interest in exploring colour as a spiritual phenomena. We will try to gain a sense of where colour comes from , how it works, and what it is, by looking out into in the world aroud us and in to our human sense perceptons. We willl explore a number of different spectra, with a view to understanding the forces that work within different colour sequences and we will, above all, play with colour in a variety of media including pigments, light and glass.

The conference will be led by a number of artistists and scientists from the UK and abroad all of whom have been researching this question over many years, and this will be an opportunity to not only hear the fruits of their research, but to work alongside them in a series of taster workshops, each designed to provide a practical point of entry into the science, philosophy and spirit of colour.

Proposed workshops include:
Veil Painting
Molten Glass
Stained Glass
Lazure Techniques
Earth Pigments
Sculpting Colour
Natural Dying
Sunrise and Sunset Work

... with more to come. All in the context of the unique exhibition of light experiments from Switzerland, “experienceCOLOUR” see..  for more details
