The momentum for the year is picking up and time to begin our 2019 workshop series. I have lots of ideas to share with you. We are starting the year with Creative Journaling which has been my sacred space to soothe my heart after the loss of Shadow. My painting and drawing skills are at zero! However, the world of mixed media art and scrapbooking has me creating pieces of art for my journal.
Totally absorbing, creative, mindfulness meditation – so therapeutic and healing. Full details follow.
Our other workshop is Bead, Macrame, Knot Beading Day learning simple macrame techniques to fashion your own pieces of jewellery. More sacred space :). There will be a Sunday Meditation with essential oils, crystals, pranayama and yoga nidra coming soon too. Sign up for the newsletters, or follow us on Instagram or Facebook.
whisperedweaves.com is the sister website to Whispered Secrets Yoga and currently is to promote my jewellery items. I have decided to use it as a forum to post all those extra things we do in class and workshops. I will still use it as a platform for the jewellery but will post the crystal grids, oracle layouts and essential oils that we have worked with in some of the sessions. This will then be your resource for crystals, spreads and essential oils that we may have used in class along with any additional info that we may not have had time to touch on.
I’ll reconfigure the whole design of the site over the coming weeks but all the info will be part of the blog – so easy to find. If you click onto the site you will be able to click follow at the bottom of the page so that new posts will always be emailed to you. This will be great for those of you that can’t make these classes, or miss a session.
Junk Journal Workshop
Sunday 24 February
10.00 – 4.00pm
Join me in a day of Creative Journaling where you can bring in your stash of photos, notes, beautiful cards and mementos that may currently be hiding in a draw and create your unique, special personal ‘Junk’ Journal.
Maybe you have an old book with beautiful binding that you can recover, recycle and fill with all those special things you already have and still have space to add your 2019 notes, quotes, pictures, recipes and treasured moments. I will have books to pull apart for your creative journey if you need.
This could be your visual 2019 diary, travel journal, poetry, art journal, or vision diary for all those things you love.
We will play with different techniques: add pockets, vintage look, collage, paint, smudge, cut and paste. Where the mistakes become beautiful. This is your personal journey and there are no mistakes. I supply all the art materials, beautiful papers, ephemera and ideas to inspire.
I have lots of journals which are full of quotes and notes that I have jotted down from books that I am reading. From now on my journals will be full of colour as I embellish with paints, inks, stencils, decoupage and mementos. It’s a wonderful healing and therapeutic process – I love it!!
Plus it is excellent way to reuse, recycle envelopes, cardboard packaging, magazines – everything has the potential to become something beautiful and memorable.
Sharing the journey is always so much fun too – so I decided that this should be our first workshop of the year. Creating a journal for the year ahead. More workshops will follow with different projects and techniques to inspire new ways to add to your journal.
Space is limited to 5 people – so please book early: firstname.lastname@example.org or text/phone me (Annie) 021 379 286. And as with all our day workshops please bring a plate for a shared lunch on the day.
I am sooooo excited for this one….. let’s make 2019 truely creative for the whole year!
