19 Dec Intuitive Sculpture: A Sacred Soul Tool Sound Activation
For thousands of years people have worn, carried and used objects for protection, luck, celebration and ritual. These objects have been found, altered, crafted, inscribed and blessed. What gives these creations meaning is the intent and belief of the human maker and user – that we are all creative, magical beings. Intuition is the artist’s most valuable tool when creating any object – it is a direct connection to Spirit. The urgency to unfold ideas from an uninhibited place happens through spontaneous discovering and inventing of materials and methods. In this workshop Mary will guide you through a sound-led activation where she will bring everyone through a meditative journey. She will then guide you in conceptualizing and creating your own intuitive sculpture that can be used as a protection amulet, a talisman or a ceremonial object for your sacred space. Let yourself be inspired by Spirit and the magic of Earth through inner exploration and tangible creation of your Sacred Soul Tool. We will use various modes of fiber-based techniques (knotting, wrapping, stitching and weaving) utilizing natural ethically-sourced materials from our Earth (driftwood, stones, leather, silk, wool, feathers, yarn, rope, horsehair and seashells) to create an amulet for protection – a talisman used in your own personal rituals to manifest soul expansion and power. A wide variety of materials will be provided to work with. Please feel free to bring any meaningful objects or materials that you might like to incorporate into your sculpture.
Intuitive Sculpture: A Sacred Soul Tool Sound Activation will be offered by Mary Grisey
