TAROT 101

We're looking forward to Cairo's very first TAROT 101 workshop, taught by professional Tarot reader Meagan Angus on Sunday, August 9th from 2-5pm. 

In this Tarot 101 class, we will be covering the basics of Tarot, including:

- An overview of the many types of decks available 
- How to choose a deck
- Superstitions and misunderstandings surrounding the Tarot
- Elements that can assist in readings (Crystals, plant helpers, colors etc)
- A brief discussion on the nature of symbolism
- An overview of common symbol sets used in most decks
- A focused look at The Minor Arcana suits
- The Major Arcana - The Good, The Bad, The Enlightened
- The Tarot in comparison to other popular magickal systems
- Common tarot spreads / and a simple cleansing and blessing  

An original workbook for students to take home that will facilitate creating a personal connection with your cards. If possible, please bring your own deck.
 

The modern Tarot is a highly refined set of symbols used by Witches, Magicians, Shamans, Seers, Mediums and Psychotherapists. Proving itself to countless generations as a valuable tool for insight and meditation, the Tarot is seeing a resurgence of interest in people who want an easy way to open a dialogue with their own subconscious, people looking for alternate methods of evoking powerful archetypes for change, and people wanting to open a door into their variant futures.
 

Meagan Angus has been reading Tarot professionally and privately for over 25 years. Self taught, she is influenced by Hermetic Magic, Kabbalah, and Jungian archetypal psychology. She is learning from the Tarot every day, and grateful for the conversation with The Universe. V.I.T.R.I.O.L.

SOLAR POWER // A Summer Yoga Workshop with CARAVAN AGE

Solar energies will be at their peak during this time surrounding the summer solstice, giving us a perfect opportunity to align with and harness that solar power through our yoga practice. As the halfway point during the year, it is also a time to check in with our intentions we may have set around the new year, evaluate what has manifested in our lives, and refine those intentions as we continue on our annual journey around the sun.

This mini yoga workshop and asana practice hosted by Cairo and Caravan Age will incorporate discussion, time for journaling and self-reflection, meditation and breathwork. We will learn and practice several variations on the classic sun salutation during the last hour of the workshop. The workshop is accessible to all levels of practitioner. No prior yoga experience is required.

Rena Luelle is a multi-faceted artist who creates under the name Caravan Age and is one half of the electronic duo Ecstatic Cosmic Union. She has been practicing yoga for eight years and recently completed a 200 hr teacher training program through Lotus Yoga in Columbia City. She currently teaches at Tiger Lily Yoga in Rainier Valley.

Bring a mat, water bottle, and a cushion or blanket to sit on. A workbook will be provided for journaling as well as a crystal and essential oil pairing to aid in your home practice. 

This workshop is $35. Space is limited- please register early to secure a spot. To register, sign up HERE.

Sandal Making Workshop with Rachel Corry

  • Cairo

On Sunday May 3rd learn to make your very own leather sandals with sandal making goddess Rachel Corry of Rachel Sees Snail Shoes (Portland, OR)! 

You’ll explore every step of the sandal-making process, starting off by customizing trusted patterns to suit your own feet and design preferences. Then you will cut and assemble natural vegetable tanned leather, paying close attention to fit. Next you will use shoe cement and brass nails to attach the layers to a foam-rubber sole that will mold beautifully to the curves of your feet over time. You'll leave the final class with your ready-to-wear sandals and they'll develop a darker patina as you wear them!

Simple sandal-making is a great way to get into DIY shoemaking of all kinds. After this workshop, you’ll be able to replicate the process at home, with only a few simple tools.

Workshop is $220, includes all materials on Sunday May 3rd from 12:30-6:30pm. 

You must register by April 19th to gain entry to this workshop. REGISTER HERE. Space is super limited so do not delay! :)

spring sandals

Rachel Corry has been hand-making leather sandals for her brand Rachel Sees Snail Shoes since 2010. She studied with two English shoemakers, Jeremy Atkinson and Sarah Juniper, and used their old world knowledge as a starting off point to developed her own techniques for sandal-crafting. She’s been teaching small groups to make their own footwear for 4 years now at inspiring spaces including Wildcraft Studio School and Gravel & Gold. Rachel’s sandals are designed to be modern and wearable. She loves to share the craft of simple shoemaking! www.rachelseessnailshoes.com

About Carly: Carly taught herself how to embroider in 2009 and has been developing this craft ever since. Her first introduction to embroidery was Sublime Stitching’s book Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart. This book introduced her to original and alternative forms of embroidery and taught her fundamental embroidery techniques. After a lot of practice, experimentation, trial and error, Carly has found her niche. Today, she creates original designs that are inspired by nature and the Pacific Northwest and she displays her finished work on wall hangings. She finds the art of embroidery endlessly creative, forgiving, rewarding, and so much fun! She is looking forward to leading this workshop and sharing her embroidery knowledge, techniques, and wisdom with those interested in learning this craft.

Tarot should be accessible. Magic is not a luxury; it's a necessity. Your subconscious will guide you toward the cards you need to see. A Tarot reader interprets the cards' images and explains their meaning in an empowering way. Relationships, career, big life changes: Tarot can help with all of it.

Emily Ann Pothast - Works on Paper

  • Cairo

Cairo will be hosting an exhibition of works on paper by Seattle musician and visual artist (and Cairo associate!) Emily Ann Pothast during the month of April. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 9 from 7 to 9 pm during the Capitol Hill Artwalk.

Before she became known as the frontwoman of the band Midday Veil, half of the installation-performance duo Hair and Space Museum and co-founder of the record label Translinguistic Other, Emily received an MFA in printmaking from the University of Washington.

Incorporating painting, drawing and collage into finely textured surfaces, Emily's works on paper reveal an interest in sacred geometry, metaphysics, and a host of visionary artists throughout history whose work encodes attempts to render elusive ideas like time, transcendence and eternity in two dimensions.


Emily has exhibited and performed at a number of local and national venues including Vignettes, Seattle University's Hedreen Gallery, Bumbershoot, and Family Business Gallery in New York.

IMG_1139.jpg


About Melissa: Melissa O’Boyle is a Seattle artist and designer currently working in the textile medium of macrame with designs inspired by nature and geometry.  She moved to the Northwest in 2010 having spent most of her life in Georgia.  Receiving a BFA in 2005 from University of Georgia, her focus was in traditional film photography.  Her experience varies from alternative forms of photography, photographic experimentation on fabric, pinhole photography,printmaking, paper-making, book arts, jewelry-making and metalwork.  She studied in Cortona, Italy in the summer of 2004 and has taken continuing education courses at Pratt Fine Art Center in the Central District of Seattle.  

Melissa was first introduced to macrame as a jewelry-making technique in the late 90’s.  Fifteen years later, as styles and trends re-enter modern culture, she has picked it up again on a much larger scale.  Melissa's work was on display in West Elm in the summer of 2014 as a featured local artist and was commissioned to make large wall hangings for both residential spaces and commercial spaces.  For Melissa, the creative process is a way to awaken the spirit and offer therapy from our busy day to day lives.  Macrame especially can provide an easy outlet and is meditative by nature. She wants to give individuals without formal training access to the joy of not only creating something beautiful and unique, but also a skill they can expand upon.
