Spring Newsletter for 2020! New Year Greetings from Magenta Arts

It was so good to be back in the studio again after the Christmas break and get the Jotul stove going and the paints out for a Holy Nights theme.
It brought to mind the seeds deep in the earth being stirred into germinating by the stars power!
So now I am planning a new season of workshops, following the cycle of the year and beginning with Epiphany! A wonderful word with many pictures and themes associated with it, the Magi and their gifts, the Baptism inthe Jordan and the search of Everyman and woman for their path towards fulfilment.
Here to follow will be some dates and themes for upcoming workshops in 2020
All on Wednesday Morning, 10.00 to 12.30. £20.00 per session

22nd January The Star of Epiphany

29thJanuary The Dreaming Earth

5th February. Candlemas or The Celtic Imbolc

Positive Births

To scan or not to scan?
This is what Germany has just passed:

Germany has passed a new law, for the protection of babies in utero, FORBIDDING pregnancy scans unless there is a REAL medical need for it.

Here is their reasoning for this law (translated):

"The high intensity of ultrasound necessary for these images carries a potential risk for the unborn child, particularly as the absorption of these in the bone is significantly increased during early development of the osseous tissue.

Furthermore, no reliable studies evaluating the consequences of this application exist.

Therefore the practice of using ultrasound scans for non-medical use - for example just to obtain a picture of the foetus - without a medical need having been established, is prohibited."

„Die für die Bildgebung notwendigen hohen Ultraschallintensitäten sind mit einem potenziellen Risiko für das Ungeborene verbunden, insbesondere da mit Beginn der Knochenbildung wesentlich mehr Schallenergie am Knochen absorbiert wird. Darüber hinaus fehlen verlässliche Untersuchungen über die Folgen dieser Anwendung [...]. Daher werden Ultraschallanwendungen zu einem nichtmedizinischen Zweck, wie z.B. zur reinen Bildgebung am Fötus („Babykino“), ohne dass eine ärztliche Indikation gestellt wurde, untersagt […].“
