Transformative Fiber Arts 7/8 - 7/12

Art Therapy Through Symbolic Expression with Patsy Rausch and Dr. Michelle Tichy.

This workshop encourages conversations about cultural relationships related to fabrics and materials that are significant to individual narratives. The sessions support emotional exploration with community dialog, creative expression, and celebrated risk. Incorporating cotton fabric, plant fibers, pigment, and natural dyes in 2D and 3D designs, the materials are broken down to a pulp, slurried in vats, and then pulled to form sheets of handmade paper. Over the event, attendees will learn the fundamentals of hand papermaking and engage in the opportunity to share personal narratives in a safe space, prompting a visual voice of truth.

Participant experience level: all levels; beginners encouraged.
