Mindful Offerings

Anni Schwabe
9:00 - 4:30
Monday & Tuesday Oct 18/19

[back to quicklinks]
$ 330  

We will be using only elements from the Earth (gypsum, clay, rust, metal, wood and tea bags to name a few) to create our own ‘Offerings’ wall hanging.

We will learn to make 3-D items out of plaster wrap. In my samples, a moon, a leaf, a boat, a platter, a medallion, a door that opens and other elements are all 3-D items we will make in this class. Day two will consist of adhering our elements onto the cured panels, painting/staining and arranging panels into a wall hanging.

We all need to become more ‘mindful’ when it comes to the environment that naturally surrounds us. I have devoted over twenty-five years (and counting) to conservation and it is with this mindset that I created this class.
Bring your own mindful ideas but leave your carbon footprint at home.
