Meditation Panels - Instructor:  Judy Martin
3 days      $150      Wed Aug 22 to Fri Aug 24
   This workshop introduces the archetypal symbols and shapes used around the world and across time.  These first shapes connect us without words to our spiritual need for ritual and are the inspirational basis for original and personally scaled meditation panels.  Hands on instruction in Judy’s improvisational methods of working over foundation cloth in combination with traditional hand stitched construction methods and hand embroidery will start participants on a project that will continue to nurture the maker over a period of months.
   This is a quiet workshop.  We will be guided by our sense of touch.  It is inspired by the successful Manitoulin Community Circle Project in which over 100 women made several hand-stitched meditation panels for the local community during four years of weekly meetings.
     
   Judy’s website further describes her workshop, Judith Martin textile artist The artist and Judy’s Journal.
