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.
This workshop is now SOLD OUT.

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.

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! :)
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.

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.

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.
