Friday 10 a.m.
Medicine Wheel with Cathy Young
We will build a Medicine Wheel in the tradition of Native Americans and in the process learn its meaning and purpose. Medicine Wheels help draw good energy to the festival and help protect it. Constructing a Medicine Wheel helps people get in touch and tune with nature. We'll collectively build ours on festival grounds as part of the opening activities for LEAF 2017. No supplies needed.
Friday noon-5 p.m.
Foundations of Stone Sculpture with Dean Reganess
Learn the techniques to begin the art of stone sculpture. There is no set project, the workshop develops organically, everyone learning and creating at their own pace and style.
Friday 1-3 p.m.
Plarn Please with Jan Shapland
Learn how to up-cycle used plastic bags into plarn. Plarn can be used in the same way as yarn. I will also have samples of crocheted plarn mats and baskets. This is an open attendance workshop -- you are welcome to come by anytime during the session to participate. Plastic bags will be provided, but feel free to bring your own to repurpose!
Friday 3-4 p.m.
