When we hear the word "metamorphosis," we imagine, hidden within a cocoon, a caterpillar slowly growing wings and transforming into a butterfly.
Or, perhaps you know what actually happens in that chrysalis: The caterpillar completely dissolves, becoming a primordial soup in which Imaginal Discs that hold DNA float. Out of this will come the butterfly. The caterpillar was necessary. But it is gone and the metamorphosis is underway.
Do you find yourself in a profoundly metamorphic moment, your old ways dissolving into a primordial soup of possibility? If so, this workshop will help you make the most of the opportunities present in this metamorphic moment through exercises using simple materials, memories, words and dreams. These exercises will help you connect to your unconscious, to what your body knows.
In this workshop, you will learn to trust the process as the way to bring your work into being - not as a premeditated and preconfigured vision manifested - but as something that manifests through doing and ritual.
There will be pre-session assignments, 1 eight-hour virtual live class session via Zoom, and 1 four-hour follow up session.
This is a class about the creative process. We will not be teaching any glass techniques.
A desktop or laptop computer with strong, reliable internet access is required. A tablet may work, but phones are not recommended. A web camera is essential as it is important that everyone be able to connect visually during this workshop.
Prerequisites: All levels are welcome!
