Illuminated Paper Vessels with Carol Marie Vossler
July 17, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This workshop will teach the history of paper lanterns, papermaking, types of paper and how lanterns are still used today. Participants will learn the basic techniques of building an armature, folding and then adhering  paper onto the armature. These hand-crafted lanterns will adorn all year long. Safe to use indoors or outside (weather permitting)! All paper, lights, armature materials and stamp making tools will be provided.

Introduction to Watercolor with Lauren Walker
July 24, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM 

Learn various techniques of watercolor painting, including transparent and opaque washes and painting wet-on-wet. This workshop will explore painting everyday objects using these methods, and participants will create an abstract or non-objective painting inspired by music!

Sound Bath with Andrea Lisette Villiere
August 7, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM 

Immerse yourself in the healing vibrations of multiple gongs, Tibetan, quartz crystal and alchemy singing bowls. The hypnotic drone of the Shruti, chimes, the drum, and more! Sound baths create the space for self-healing and transformation. The resonance of the instruments is not just an auditory experience – it’s like receiving a full body sound massage. The healing harmonics work to realign your entire system – a restorative bath of sound!

Participants should bring a yoga mat, blankets, or sleeping bag and a pillow with you. Eye masks are an optional benefit to add to the sensory experience.
