As far back as the 4th century B.C., the connection between “divine” inspiration and altered mental state had already been made, prompting Plato to expound in the dialogue the Phaedrus: “Madness, provided it comes as the gift of heaven, is the channel by which we receive the greatest blessings… Madness comes from God, whereas sober sense is merely human.”
Tuesday evenings 6pm – 9 pm, May 6th, 13th, 20nd, & 27th, let’s get together in the Echo Lake studio space to sew… well, to sew whatever you’d like. My friend Susan calls this sort of gathering a “stitch and bitch”, I hope not. Yet it is my intention that we can share what’s in our hearts & minds. Have fun, be social and create!
Bring whatever you are currently working on. Bring whatever you’ve been meaning to work on. Bring your ideas & choose from the many materials available in the studio. Come empty handed & empty headed, be inspired. CREATE!
Do you need new leather pouches for your herbs, Tarot cards or Ruins? Maybe a Possible Bag to carry all your possibilities here and there? A drum bag perhaps? Any sort of leather crafting can be done in a single session or over the course of several.
Or is it a rattle that is needed at this time? At your leisure craft any sort of rattle in as many sessions as you’d like. Choose from rawhide, turtle shells, gourds or deer toes.
What about feather cases? You know they need protection too!
The possibilities are endless.
