    Participants will enjoy a leisurely short hike on the Womanspace paths looking for natural wonders along the route that "speak" to us (only things on the floor of the forest as we do not want to hurt "growing" things!) Then we'll go back to the Art Building and create a 3-D or 2-D assemblage piece combining our finds with a buffet of assemblage found objects (these are provided but participants are welcome and encouraged to bring along things to use and/or share) and art supplies (paint, wood for a base, etc.). Join us and we'll see what we can create with the help of Mother Nature on a lovely Spring day!

    Bring some flickering candlelight to your garden or patio and recycle those beautiful wine bottles you can't bring yourself to throw away! You will try your hand at using a bottle cutter to turn that wine bottle into a candle holder on a copper pole. You may bring some wine bottles in the color you wish to create with (bring a few, there may be breakage involved!) Or there will be some available at the class, all other supplies are also included. You may want to bring a pair of leather or gardening gloves to handle the glass.

        Facilitator: Susan Burton

        Inspired from a writing and       drawing technique called “Exquisite Corpse.” The technique was invented by Surrealists in 1925 and i

    s based on an old parlor game in which players write in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the writing, and then pass it to the next player for a further contribution.  Later the game was adapted to drawing and collage, producing a result similar to children's books in which the pages were cut into thirds, the top third pages showing the head of a person or animal, the middle third the torso, and the bottom third the legs, with children having the ability to "mix and match" by turning pages. An exquisite corpse mosaic is produced in three sections. Each section is completed with mosaic, then covered and the next section is done by a different person not knowing what the other has done.
