About the Event
Inspired by Liz Marchi's artwork and our own experiences in nature, we will create something magical with raw materials from nature! This workshop will give us a moment to reflect on our experiences being in nature, to notice the beautiful balance, symmetry, patterns and colors all around us in the natural world, and to transform our observations into inspiration for creative time together. We will be using sticks, rocks, leaves, organic materials like twine, and more!
This workshop series builds on the exhibtion, Sacred Circle: The Work and Words of my Mother, curated by Michaela Marchi. Michaela Marchi is a multi-ethnic educator, singer/songwriter and a stage IV colon cancer survivor living with Lynch Syndrome, a hereditary genetic condition that puts one at high risk for multiple cancers. Besides being a long-awaited tribute to her late mother, this exhibition is the first chapter of her exploration and understanding of what it means to be the first in three generations on both sides of her family to survive a cancer diagnosis. She recognizes the importance of ethnic identity, creative endeavor, and a profound connection to nature as foundational tools in the process of self-healing and achieving a sense of wholeness and wellbeing. Her primary interest is to promote intergenerational healing and support others in becoming self-advocates when it comes to cancer detection, care and treatment.
All materials provided. Open to makers of all ages.
