Looking for sacred in everyday life? This workshop is for you. We will be looking for the joy in small everyday things. It’s a little more than just creating a piece of kichie art, its’s way to share your own sacred story in dimensional form.
We will spend time to journey, write, sketch, collect and treasure hunt for sacred objects to help create each component. Each item or part that we create will have special meaning that lends itself to tell your own story in 3-D form within the shrine.
Activate your imagination and vision of your life into a 3 dimensional sacred shrine. Tell a story through your shrine, what it represents to you and what you want to gain. We’ll look in depth about our life stories and the path ways that have led us to where we are now. We’ll spend some time writing and sharing our stories (optional), to create your crafted shrines of inspiration using some of mine or your favorite papers, cloth, found objects, junk drawer finds, shells, stones, feathers, charms, things picked up on a special trip, old clothing scraps that remind you of the good ol’ days or your favorite grandmothers handkerchief. The list of supplies is endless. Lisa will share her technical skills and odd sense of humor to help you see yourself in a new light.
Lisa will provide:
Tobacco boxes and other odd containers, odds and ends, cloth feathers, papers and cloth
Scissors, glue/epoxy, needle and thread,
Students can bring their sacred objects, cloth, cards, photos, that are special to place within their shrines.
