1000 Faces of the Feminine
This workshop is nourishment for the participants' personal relationship with the sacred feminine and feminine archetypes, through ritual and creativity.
We will explore the questions:
- - what myth are you living with?
- what archetype do you feel present in your life?
- Which would you like to evoke?
You will make your own little goddess or talisman. She will be stitched and painted and adorned.
Participants are invited to bring any items they might want to include - this can be special fabric, jewellery, shells, beads, feathers, buttons, ribbon, small stones, crystals, or even secret things to be hidden inside the doll.
This workshop will be the culmination of three months exploration of female archetypes and is an opportunity to craft a personal memento of your journey. No experience is needed / all materials are provided.
