Arnolfini - est 1961

In this workshop, participants are invited to explore the meditative technique of veil painting.

The method of painting with thinned down layers (veils) of watercolour, promotes patience for reflection and patience in doing. As each veil dries and another is applied, light and dark emerges. This technique moves the focus away from form and into colour, light and dark. The workshop will begin with a brief tour of Journey of the Mind, currently showing throughout Arnolfini’s second floor. As we move in to the Reading Room we will continue themes concerning body and mind, to share a space painting in veils.

Led by Ruth Wylde, Arnolfini placement from the MA in Curating, UWE Bristol. To book a place, please email
