Descriptions of some of the formal workshops:

Personal Toolmaking  Tools are simply devices for directing energy.  I suspect that we all have enough hammers, screwdrivers, knives, spoons and spatulas.  There are still many needs we have as humans for which special “tools” might help.  This 90-minute workshop  introduces the history of tools and tool making from ancient and pre-historical times through the present. It touches on mythology, alchemy, fetishes and wands.  We actually make a few personal tools.

Woodland Trading Cards.  These small cards, the size of a playing card, are actually small collages.  For ours, we use mostly found materials and make our cards around the themes of family, loss, hope and growth.  You will make about 5 cards in this 90-minute workshop.  Please bring some extra family snapshots which you can transform and some of those useless pieces of paper (receipts, old licenses, appointment reminders) that we stick in our top dresser drawers.              

Introduction to Alchemy.  For centuries, alchemy was the united study of science and spirituality.  Its deep rich history still holds clues and directions for modern man.  A 60-minute visual talk.                                   

Make a Little Chair: In 2 1/2 -hours, Daniel Mack guides you through the technical and design steps of constructing a small 12” “trophy” chair from willow branches.  This project has all the agony and ecstasy of building larger rustic work. Bring  pruning clippers, an electric drill and work gloves
