A group of women ready to express themselves creatively gathered on Saturday, May 14, 2016 in Studio One Eleven, in the heart of the Santa Barbara, Ca Funk Zone.
Here's a 2mn slideshow of the workshop. Enjoy!
I had been prepping up for this workshop for several weeks and the morning of, the elevated energy was palpable as each student walked in... and also quite audible as Krishna Das was belting out his devotion to the God of Love :) I led everyone through a short inner journey of connecting with their personal heart essence, as we united into the One Heart of our focused intention to make Beauty and have fun together.
And that is just what we did! The atmosphere was joyous and a real sense of community prevailed as the ladies exchanged inspiration and the found objects we were using to hand print on fabrics. Some created scarves, others wall hangings, skirts and curtains. All dove straight into the creative process, guided by their heart and flowing with the curiosity of discovering what would appear on the fabric. We had decided to let go of any attachment to outcome and to allow ourselves to receive the guidance of our muse, from moment to moment.
The result was simply beautiful! Each student created 2-3 pieces, each different, and all very harmonious to the eye. The patterns were diverse and revealed the unique expression of each personality. At the beginning of the workshop, I had briefly spoken about Sacred Geometry, pointing to the poster that I had drawn of the basic shapes of nature, and some of the ladies drew inspiration from it, creating spirals, and Vesica Piscis.
I am delighted at both the finished pieces and the wonderful time we had together. I am receiving very positive and happy feedback about the event, and so the next one is already in the works. Stay tuned and sign up for email updates to be informed first!
