What you'll do

You will find me in a Renaissance costume at the entrance of the building where my art atelier is situated, I will guide you to my art atelier where the experience will take place. I will offer a few sealed individual appetizers and juice/water and you will tap into the atmosphere of Renaissance Italy when the first deck of tarot cards was painted.

I will show and explain to you the imagery on my self-created Major Arcana Deck, having my ink artwork on it.

I'll explain to you the structure of the deck and you will learn how the 78 card divination deck has developed from the initial playing cards. The Marseille Deck seems to have its origin in the imagery of the first Italian Tarots. You will learn the difference between different tarot schools.

Than we will start our journey into the Major Arcana! I will teach you a few simple spreads with the basic meanings of the 22 cards with a printed instruction, and a clear system of applying the meanings to all kind of questions.

And finally I will give you readings on your questions.
We will close by a final chin-chin. And you will get a tiny artistic souvenir from me.
Other things to note
You don't need to have any previous experince in drawing or tarot readings, the entire event is fun and entertainment.

My name is Darya and I am a Visionary Artist & a Tarot Advisor.
My personal journey brought me through the path of imagery to intuitive card reading.
I am offering Tarot readings since 2010. The magic of the Tarot doesn’t end for me during the card reading, it flows into my artwork, revealing new layers of meaning and feeling!
I am a professional artist, the author of my own Major Arcana Deck which was presented in 2012 in Pesaro (PU), Italy, during a personal art exhibition. The inspiration for this deck came after my Merkabah initiation with Drunvalo Melchizedek in Sedona, AZ.
Since 2016 I live and work in Bologna having my atelier in the most beautiful and esoteric square – The Seven Churches Square. I have studied tarology in one of the best Russian Tarot Schools.
I integrate Indigenous, Italian and Russian wisdom in my work.

I had a great time learning about tarot reading and talking to a real artist! The experience was very fulfilling and wish to be able to participate in other similar activities with Darya since she was a great teacher.

Must-do in Bologna! We loved meeting Darya. She is so talented — both artistically and with her tarot readings. Her readings amazed us. She was so spot-on and now, weeks later, I keep finding myself thinking of what we discussed. Darya also surprised us with a gift - original watercolor paintings of Bologna, and I just got mine framed. I will treasure it and also remember some of the words of wisdom that came through the tarot readings when I look at it. Thanks Darya!

This was a truly unique experience in Darya's home studio, decorated with her art, right on a picturesque square in Bologna. She knows a lot about tarot and gave a very insightful reading, and we got to take away a pack of her own take on the major arcana. It was a very entertaining evening, and she spent more than the scheduled time with us. She is a very thoughtful and interesting person, and I'd highly recommend this for anyone interested in Italian tarot history.
