SCRAP Workshop: Making

If you are interested in
working more deeply with images and the imagination, this collage workshop is
for you! Please join artist and
author Janell Moon for an afternoon rich with discovery and learning.
In this workshop you will be using cardboard or any flat
backing for the "dream body" and papers, fabric and found items to
glue on this surface. You will
learn how to unify a collage so it is fun to do, work as a piece of art
stretch your imagination. In
addition, guided by Janell, you will learn how the objects and images
choose have meaning-making potential for you. You can bring images that
want to make central to a dream or find something at SCRAP that
you. You will leave with as many as three collages with flat surfaces or
for shadow boxes.
is the author of ten books of poetry and spiritual nonfiction.
a trained hypnotherapist and uses collage work for both meditation and
channel for creativity. Janell
runs a dream group and The Making Dreams Collage Workshop is a variation
of this, giving participants an opportunity to chose images and later,
wish, write about what they have made and how it relates to their lives.

SCRAP Workshop: Jewelry
Saturday April 24, 1p-4p
Presenter: Cynthia Eagleton
Join artist Cynthia
Eagleton to learn how to use scrap wood, nails and hooks to create beautiful
jewelry boards. Cynthia's jewelry
boards are beautiful, useful objects created from recycled materials. When complete, these jewelry boards are
one of a kind gift to give, or artwork for you to use for your own jewelry
organization. You'll use
paint, paper and odds and ends from SCRAP. This workshop engages, what Cynthia refers to as the "two
eyes of art", vision and craft. You will leave this workshop with a great gift
for Mother's Day and have fun turning junk into beauty and creating
organization out of chaos!
Cynthia is an artist who
has worked in film, video, collage, paint, jewelry, assembly,
writing, and performance. She has taught art, writing, ESL, movement, and
Parent Ed to folks age 1 to 92. In addition to being an artist, Cynthia's
life as a single parent has sharpened her appreciation for the marriage of form
and function. An object that both makes her life easier and
soothes or stimulates her spirit makes her happy. Jewelry boards are
an example of this. Cynthia says,
"My life, both creatively and professionally, has been water poured in
and out a series of vessels. The form has varied but the spirit remains
the same. I'm interested in themes of healing, beauty, and pattern, and
for me, these three things are somehow all the same."
