Janina works with reclaimed materials: old magazines; out-of-date calendars; wood found in the street; things rejected or considered of no use are her starting point.

This, for her, is an act of Creative Redemption. She likes to think the same of those things in our lives we might otherwise believe have no value or worth: Reframe to Reclaim.


“When it is not possible to pray, we can always briefly look at an icon which is so intimately linked with the experience of love”, Father Henri Nouwen

An opportunity to create your own icon for personal use or to give as a gift to someone you love. Materials provided. You may like to bring some items of your own to incorporate: photos, pictures, lace, sequins etc
