My name is Gill Sakakini, I am a mixed media artist living and working in the UK. My work also takes me to Canada and the US where I am a faculty member of the Grunewald Guild in Washington State.
I lecture, lead study days, quiet days, and workshops from a Christian perspective, and I enjoy working alongside people of all faiths and none to explore the relationship between the Christian faith and the visual arts.
Please take a few moments to browse my website.

The Rhythm and Soul of the Book
I will be guiding a retreat at The Penhurst Retreat Centre located near Battle, East Sussex, England in September 2016. This prayerful and creative retreat offers a unique opportunity to practice "fixed-hour prayer" alone and in community using the liturgies of the divine office through the making of a personal prayer book. You will receive individual guidance in the creation of your Book of Hours which will be inspired by the beauty of the surrounding area and may reflect your particular interests.
Friday 30th September to Sunday 2nd October at The Penhurst Retreat Centre, nr Battle, East Sussex, England TN33 9QP
