LIVE PAINTING SESSIONS / THE NEW CO-CREATION SESSIONS

Our sessions are evolving! We all felt that it might be exciting to also embrace other materials, to interweave our multiple talents, disciplines and projects – so beginning this week – every Wednesday at 11 am and 4 pm Rome, Italy time, we’ll be opening up also to sewing, music, writing, and any other practise that will fit into our Jitsi meeting room! See/ hear/ feel you there.

LOVE AND BEAUTY TO YOU TODAY AND ALWAYS!
