An afternoon workshop with Tom Bree, 28 October 14.00-17.00.
Tom Bree is a geometer-artist, teacher and writer. He specialises in geometry as a practical art as well as a vehicle for contemplating spiritual and philosophical ideas. These two aspects of geometry are united within the teaching, whereby the participants could be said to be drawing philosophy as well as contemplating reality through pattern making. The afternoon will start with an introductory slideshow, followed by a practical drawing session dealing with geometry as a sacred art and symbolic system.
Tom completed his M. A. at Prince's School of Traditional Arts in 2003 where he studied Geometry under Professor Keith Critchlow. He has since been teaching geometry and lecturing for various institutes, and organisations such as the Prince's School of Traditional Arts and the Temenos Academy, the Prince's Teaching Institute, the Chalice Well Trust, the Educational Renaissance Trust, Art in Action and the Diocese of Bath & Wells. He also teaches privately as well as running his own self-organised teaching projects. Tom has been researching the underlying geometric design of medieval Gothic cathedrals for several years and is currently writing a book on the subject.
Entrance £12.00 to include refreshments, and all equipment and paper supplied.
