Bring along anything you want to work on, whether it is drawing, painting, stone mandalas, prayer flag, paper weaving, textile mosaics, collages or anything else. Or if you’re looking for inspiration, perhaps have a range of materials handy and see what happens.

20.00: Landscapes, Seascapes & Views with Graham Mummery - Zoom

This workshop is aimed at writers of all levels writing experience from beginner to advanced. 

We often comment in this group on the scenery on Skyros Island. For example, sunsets from the bar at Atsitsa. Watching the sunrise at Skyros town from the site of the old temple of Apollo there is also quite an experience! Or maybe there is the view of the Parthenon when staying in Athens. 

Using examples from published poetry as models, and maybe the odd photograph, we will look at how to write about them and others. There will be an opportunity to write something for yourself and the possibility of sharing this in the friendly environment of the group. See you there.

Graham Mummery is a published poet. His collection Meeting My inners (Pindrop) appeared in 2015. More recently a longer poem by him was in the book “The Light of Ishtar” published in the USA. More >>

09.30: Saturday Cafe with Paula Bishop - Zoom
Drop in with your morning coffee for a catch up and a check in! Maybe want to stay connected while others are offline and elsewhere or want to see what plans people have over the summer. More

11.00: Peace Education with Wallee McDonnell - Zoom
The purpose of the Peace education Programme is to provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about their own inner resourses - such as Inner Strength, Choice, Appreciation, Self Awareness, Hope and explore the possibility of inner peace. 

The course empowers individuals to reach their own understanding, there are no right or wrong answers it's simply about your own personal self- discovery. It is non- religious and non political.

The course content will consist of a number short video clips exploring the theme, after each video or groups of video there is a period of reflection in which you're invited to share your thoughts on what you just heard or write them down in the chat section or alternatively you can just sit quietly and listen to others sharing. More >>
