WORKSHOPS FOR ADULTS

https://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/calendar/aroma-arts-spring-2020

Learn the basics of making your own natural incense. This workshop introduces a Japanese style of incense-making using traditional materials. Artist Mike Paré, founder of Zouz Incense, a natural incense company, draws from the history of incense to introduce students to a variety of aromatic herbs, spices, tree resins, and powders; discusses the philosophy of fragrance formation; and teaches participants to roll cones or joss sticks. Each participant will finish the workshop with 12-20 pieces of incense.
RESIN PENDANTS: A JEWELRY WORKSHOP WITH LESLIE PERRINO
Sunday, January 26, 2020 – 10 am-4 pm
Fee: $110/$99 members
More information and to register: https://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/calendar/resin-pendants-jan-2020

Participants will produce a series of pendants by collaging materials and covering them in resin. First, you’ll make a mini-collage by choosing from a large selection of decorative papers, photos, and small objects–charms, beads, shells, etc.—and arranging them in a diminutive pendant tray. Then the tray will be filled with clear resin and will harden into a unique pendant. The possibilities are endless! Learn how to prep and reduce bubble formation to get lovely results and expect to bring home at least four pendants by the end of the day. Students are encouraged to bring their own materials and mementos, or collect items on Lynden’s grounds, if desired. No experience required, and all materials supplied. Bring a bag lunch and beverages, and dress for the weather if you would like to do some outdoor collecting.

What stories, questions, and connections can emerge from a shared activity like cooking a meal or sewing together? Taking a lead from artist Lee Mingwei, and his Dining and Mending projects, we will design spaces for collective interactions. Outside, we will share favorite recipes and design a meal of local food that we’ll cook over a fire. In the studio, we’ll trade ripped or damaged clothing with a mending partner. As we mend these articles of clothing, we’ll learn about ourselves and each other by sharing stories about the clothes and how they were damaged. Ages 6-15.

Sue Pezanoski Browne and Katie Hobday, Lynden’s teachers-in-residence, invite you to participate in the Sound Tree Project, the focus of their collaborative artist residency. Working in a grove of trees on the Lynden grounds, Pezanoski Browne and Hobday are constructing an environment filled with clay chimes that they make and fill with personal narratives. This exploration of art, nature, memory, and materials is informed by their thinking about movement and migration—about life as movement interspersed with pauses of various lengths.
