New Dark Mountain site launches today

Have a look at the new DM site, it is great to see the new home for our friends looking so beautiful. I was a bit surprised quite how much of my artwork, images, materials and even my face is all over it, so if you haven’t overloaded already… go and enjoy the website, full of beautiful images and food for thought.

Also have just been sent some lovely pictures from the participants in the May course in Ireland, and I will post a few here soon, the first is below.

Me ‘at work’, drawing on the last day of Wild Twins. Not a Dark Mountain course per se…

 

 

Wild Twins head home

Thanks to all who came and made this course so great. There’ll be much more on this website soon, but for now here’s a few pictures. Paul’s Wyrd School is launched, and Wild Twins was everything we’d hoped for and more, as the folks who attended brought so much expertise, enthusiasm and openness. Paul brought his wild writing, and I brought a very large bag of rocks and feathers… and we worked all week in a light-filled room 12 feet from the edge of the ocean, pulling apart our old notions, listening to the land and water speak, watching the sea otters watch us back, and responding freshly with our materials of earth.

Go to Paulkingsnorth.net/course for more details, price and venue. We’ll be out in nature and waist deep in story, myth, beauty and radical connection to the land. Artists will respond to writers and vice versa. Image and text will re-join as they should, twins who are too often split apart in the world of adult books. This course will suit any one who writes, paints or draws, at what ever level, who sincerely wants to reconnect to land, wild nature (inner and outer) and to the deep red thread of story in their work.
