THE 'NATURAL HISTORY' WORKSHOP

We invite you to dive into your imagination during this three-day Mini Makerie, under the guidance of the extraordinary Ann Wood, to create and document an imagined 'Natural History,' the title of this wonderful workshop. We will look for inspiration at the intersection of history, poetry and nature, working collaboratively, as well as individually, to create and photograph a collection of specimens. We’ll use textiles, paper, found objects and a variety of other tools, techniques, and special materials and inspiration that Ann will bring. You'll be guided through improvisational (and fun) exercises designed to spark you creatively, help you dig deeply into your imagination, and generate brand new beautiful ideas. It’s a  spontaneous, “yes and” way of working – each action builds on the previous – you work with what shows up. It’s less about finished works and more about making connections and recognizing serendipity and happy accidents when they show up. We will pull ideas and details from our experiments as a starting point for designing and making our plants and creatures. Are you curious, adventurous & love being creative? This just might be for you.

VENUE

The workshop will be held at a private, cozy artist’s studio {At Hand Studio} in the heart of Boulder, lending itself to a most intimate experience. Complete with a warm cup of tea and a cozy fireplace in case of a chilly day, this studio will be home to this immersive, creativity filled weekend.

EATS

Our lunches will feature a different favorite eatery each day, celebrating local and organic wherever possible. We will also have our favorite selections of tea and healthy treats throughout the day too and can accommodate any special dietary needs.
