Come and join The Creative Society Manchester to paint your appreciation the works of one of the worlds most prolific spiritual poets!

Jalāl al-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī (Persian: جلال‌الدین محمد رومی) more popularly known simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet, Islamic scholar and Sufi mystic originally from Khorasan in Greater Iran (Modern day Afghanistan)

As one of the most quoted people of all time, the influence of Rumi's' words transcend national borders, religion and ethnic divisions and time.

The experts at The Creative Society Manchester have created a workshop based on a mesmerising image of a whirling dervish, inspired by the quotes below.

The Mevlevis are also known as the “whirling dervishes” due to their famous practice of whirling as a form of dhikr (remembrance of God). Dervish is a common term for an initiate of the Sufi path.

“Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the world.” Rumi

“You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.” Rumi

“Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot. Seek the path that demands your whole being.” Rumi

You will be concentrating on colour, form and creating movement in your pieces and you'll take your own piece home at the end of the session to hang with pride. You'll enjoy plenty of guidance from your tutor, too, so no worries about getting stuck! There'll also be some relaxing Persian music, snacks and drinks to enjoy to complete this immersive experience.
