Here we go – despite Sinikka’s falling ill, the workshop takes place more or less as planned.
We started out by a walk in the garden park in Ytterjärna, stopping by the different characteristic spaces – or ‘rooms’, even; the hilltop, the little islets in the system of ponds, the seashore and the rosegarden… finally ending up in Almandinen music room for tea and talk.
And then some basic colour exercises: collective painting with crayons on paper, where the materials and creative process itself play the leading part – and our different temperaments disclose themselves.
To finish, one participant suggested that we improvise singing in a similar way. And so we did.
I really look forward to see where the group will take this workshop…
