Join us as we celebrate LIFE in the face of death, inspired by traditional crafts from Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos. In this course, we use words and art to commemorate our loved ones with a variety of colorful, personalized projects.
Every winter is followed by spring. To shift, grow and move into new seasons we have to let go of our winter, become curious and open as we welcome the new and unknown territory. Let this project mirror the comforting welcome of nestedness and the soaring freedom of release as you transition into the spring.
Life is sometimes really hard, and sometimes painful...especially when we were once up and now we are down. We all fall. We just do. Sometimes we trip, sometimes we miss a step....sometimes we even get knocked down by something outside of ourselves. EVERYONE has fallen. There is a critical decision that must be made when we are down...one that no one can make for us, one that we MUST make for ourselves. We have to decide if we will stay down, or if we will get back up. This is one of the most important decisions we will ever make, and we have to make it many times over the course of our lives.
In this class, we start with an ugly, messy base and continue adding layers until we finish a beautiful mixed media collage. This mirrors the process of transforming devastating grief into hope and new life.
One of the coolest projects we've ever done!! In this course, Melody will teach you how to make a giant pair of wings from some little hardware pieces called wood joining biscuits.
Join us as we look for glimmers of hope during the darkness of a holiday season overshadowed by grief or loss. This course uses words and art to honor our memories while making plans to successfully navigate the looming holidays.
