  • Workshop: Landscape Felt

    Date and time

    Saturday, June 10, 2017
    10 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

    Description

    Imagine painting with wool and other fibers. Join Lisa Rose and Gika Rector for an all day workshop, exploring the possibilities of creating imagery with fiber. Combining simple embroidery and three basic felting techniques—wet, nuno and needle—participants will create a small felted landscape, approximately 8 1/2” by 11”.

    No previous experience or talent necessary. We’ll provide all the necessary materials and tools. You bring your curiosity and perhaps a favorite landscape image for inspiration. (We’ll also provide some images and samples to get you started.)

    We will break for lunch. Please bring a lunch or plan to go out to pick up lunch.

    $90 per student, which includes teaching fee and all materials

  • Awareness Through Movement Workshop—Happy Feet

    Date and time

    Thursday, June 8, 2017
    10-11:30 a.m.

    Description

    Happy Feet! Boxed up in shoes for way too long, could your feet use a little TLC?feet

    Join Gika Rector for this Awareness Through Movement® workshop and move with strength and grace. Beginning with gentle, guided movements you’ll find more strength and power in your feet and legs than you might have thought possible.

    It seems counterintuitive in our hard-working culture that the easy way might be better, but in this case it really works. As a black belt in Judo, an athlete and a scientist, Moshe Feldenkrais (founder of the Feldenkrais Method®) understood how to develop strength, efficiency and elegance in human movement.

    Awareness Through Movement® lessons help you slow down and notice how your body gets things done. Bringing mindfulness to your movements, you will build strength, greater range of motion, and better balance. As Feldenkrais said, you will “Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy graceful.”

    Classes are suitable for almost all fitness levels. Willingness to lie on the floor, and an interest in moving more easily are really about all you need.
