Crafting Memory Workshop
Mondays, from 7PM-8PM
January 31, February 7, February 14, 2022
To register for the sessions contact Northlea United Church.
The workbook includes a link to the Zoom meeting, an outline of the session, a list of materials and links to more resources and ideas.
Mixed Media Art
Each week I will share a few simple art techniques and participants will be invited to work alongside at home — using the same methods or working in your own way. However you choose to create is up to you! We will use a variety of mixed media methods including collage, scrapbooking, water colour, and rubber stamps. Have a look at this Pinterest Board for more mixed media ideas.
A starter kit will be available for purchase and can be picked up at the church in the new year.
You don’t need to be an experienced artist to participate and you can go at your own pace. Feel welcome to come and explore and experiment to see if this is a practice that speaks for you.

Crafting Memory is my own personal art-based practice that I have created to curate my own journey with grief and loss. It’s my way to intentionally make room for grief in my life and to explore some of the corners of my grieving through where the art takes me. It’s a spiritual practice, a soul project, a journey of the heart, and for me, a testimony that the lives of those who have gone before us continue to intertwine with our own.
