Wild Art-Making

With Rain Black

August 10, 2024

As artists, we can learn so much from the brilliant colors, textures, and patterns of the forest. Often though we don’t work directly with what the wild offers us. Follow forager and artist, Rain Black (fae/he) for a retreat on wild art-making to deepen your connection to the land and your creativity.

During this retreat, we will work through two different art-making techniques using plants and mushrooms from the surrounding woods and trails. Foraging is often food-based, but nature is also an excellent source for art making. You’ll learn practical skills and approaches you can take with you.

Mixing historical and modern protocols, together we will create unique and meaningful pieces of art to commemorate the retreat. The retreat will include plenty of time for reflection and connection with each other and the world around us.

Lunch will be provided.
