The Invisible Made Visible
4th December 2021 to 18th December 2021
During a series of three, weekly (one-hour), Saturday online workshops, artist, Alex Roberts will join Fr. Tony Parsons to share how making, viewing, and experiencing works of art can offer pause for personal reflection. Using examples of site-specific works (Hope, Cleanse, Reveal, 2017) Alex previously made for an exhibition at St. Paul’s Cathedral London, the artist will provide insights into what she observed, proposed, created, and acknowledged from the exhibition experience. Alongside delivering some practical tips on how to allow your subjects of interests choose you, spurring you to get drawing, painting, building and doodling! Fostering a reflective dialogue through making.
Letting Teresa Speak
January 2022 to February 2022
The course will explore the main themes of Teresa’s life and spiritual teaching. By allowing Teresa to speak to us through her own words, it will provide participants with an insight into her character, her concerns, and the central themes of her mystical theology. While each week will consider a different aspect of Teresa’s life and thought, it is anticipated that themes will re-emerge and develop over the course of the sessions, so that a holistic view of the saint emerges.
