Breath and drawing workshop at Tramway, Glasgow
all drawings on this page created by participants
Tuesday 19 June 2018, 10.30am – 12noon
An opportunity to learn and experiment with some of the processes used in the development of the drawing pieces.
All materials are provided
Suitable for all
We will begin with a few simple and accessible breathing exercises drawn from Pranayama Yoga and Aikido ki-breath practices. The exercises connect us in a direct way to the rhythms and movements of our breathing breaths. I’ll introduce you to a range of experiments that I’ve been working with that have led to breath drawings. These include: setting up simple instructions that ‘follow’ the breath, such as In and out breath and 4 breath accumulations; translating the sound of breath phrases into graphic forms and tracing the outline of visible breath marks before their disappearance. There will also be the opportunity to test out a shared drawing with another person through synchronous breathing if you want.
