Join us for this special Studio Earth art workshop with artist Randy Taylor and create a 'healing book' dedicated to planet earth.

The Otami People of Mexico have healers called curanderos, that create healing books. These accordion fold books are made out of amate, pounded bark paper, filled with cutouts that represent healing rituals. We will brainstorm ideas of things that we can do to assist in the healing of planet earth, create symbolic cutouts and attach the cutouts to an accordion book. The healing book will be comprised of paper cutouts of wishes and actions to assist the planet in its health.

After a group discussion where ideas will be shared, we will create an accordion fold book for healing our planet. The pages will be comprised of paper cutouts depicting images of healing thoughts, prayers and blessings to go out to our planet Earth.

    Summer Speaker Series: The First Jews in Georgia

    Ann Woolner, journalist and author, traces Georgia’s first Jews from the torture chambers of the Portuguese Inquisition through escape to London and then onto a forbidden voyage to Savannah. Unexpected and unwanted, 41 Jews landed in the infant colony 1733 in the midst of a deadly epidemic there — seemingly quelled by one of their own, a Portuguese-born doctor. His curative treatments brought respect and equal treatment for Jewish settlers. When the Revolution came, these families fought as patriots, ran supplies and helped finance the war.

    Studio Earth: Mother Earth Figurines

    Workshop supplies can be recycled materials and found objects, large fabric scraps, ribbon, string, and newspaper to create a Mother Earthfigurine. No sewing is required. Start with rolled up newspaper to be the support for the figure. Then add layers of materials, attaching them with string or yarn. Arms are made using more fabric and string. How Mother Earth’s clothing evolves depends on what fabrics and materials are selected. Add a scarf, a hat and a piece of found jewelry as a final embellishment. The completed Mother Earth can be a 3-D folk art work of art to enjoy at home, as a reminder to appreciate and care for our world.
