Lovely to see everyone again today. This week we focussed on automatic drawing, originally used by the surrealists to help access the subconscious. We had some good chats in between the extended periods of intense focus where some wonderful drawings were created.
Our next letter is here ready to deliver to Trecarrel on Thursday.
