CREATIVE MINDFULNESS

WORKSHOPS FOR CALMNESS, CENTRING & PEACE
Session 1 Friday 14 September 10am-3pm
Session 2 Saturday 15 September 10–3pm
Who can attend?These workshops are for adults only and are not suitable for children to attend.  No previous art experience necessary.

What will we be creating?

In the Friday workshop, we will use the technique of Random Weaving to create big sculptural orbs that will be made from locally found natural materials, recycled materials and paper. This will then be followed by a Clay Sculpture workshop on Saturday morning, where participants will create small symbolic hanging sculptures from seeded clay.

 

On Saturday afternoon, we will finish off our pieces and then assemble our hanging artworks. The clay items will then be hung or placed in each of the woven orbs to create 5-8 big hanging pieces that will be part of a community artwork installation. We then finish with a 'hanging the art' ceremony, feedback and a plan for the artworks.

 

Throughout the workshops, participants will be guided to practice mindfulness as they create their artworks. They will initially work on pieces for the community artwork, but will also be given opportunity to create their own individual pieces, which they can take home. The workshops can be attended seperately, however we encourage people to attend both sessions where possible. Given availability, Friday workshop participants may be able to attend the Saturday afternoon session (for a donation), to finish off their art pieces and attend the ceremony.

 

Please note, these workshops are for adults only and are not suitable for children to attend.  No previous art experience necessary.

The Margaret River Community has experienced loss, stress and trauma in recent times and these workshops are designed by MR Uniting Church, Wildart Weaving and Tig-Le House to acknowledge that  in a creative, mindful and respectful way.
