It’s spring and the birds are busy building their nests and singing their hearts out for the sheer joy of it. In this fun workshop you too can celebrate the arrival of warmer weather and happy thoughts by collaging and “weaving” your very own nest of dreams.

We will start with a short, guided meditation to set intentions for the warmer seasons ahead, then intuitively paint and collage a cheery background of sky and tree branches on a small canvas. Next, using textural scraps such as torn paper, wool, fabric, etc. we will layer and weave these together in creative ways to make a “nest” for your intentions to incubate in. You will even have an opportunity to try a little needle felting to make your “eggs”.

Collage is a wonderful art form that doesn’t require any art skills or experience to enjoy its relaxing and intuitive creative process. All materials are supplied but if you have some interesting scraps of wool and material, meaningful words, or images that you wish to incorporate you are encouraged to bring them along.

Whether you simply want to create a sacred space for your dreams to come to you or add a few “eggs” to your nest, the collaged image you end up with will be a tangible reflection of what you are currently nurturing and want to see grow and develop. What better way to welcome spring and sing your heart out, just like the birds!

This is an in-person workshop and limited to only 5 participants so you get lots of one-on-one attention.
