Making Your Own Sketchbook Or Journal

Handmade Sketchbooks Poster

Joel & Tati are “artivists” (artist + activists) who believe that certain changes do not come from leaders, but surface from collaboration, dialogue and social exchange. For some years the duo have travelled with a project called Permact (www.facebook.com/Permact) offering workshops like this so as to give the opportunity for people to rethink about consumerism and waste.

In this workshop participants will use a variety of repurposed and recycled materials to make their own sketchbook or journal.

Mandala Therapy, A Creative Meditation Workshop

Mandala Workshop

Tatiana is an artist whose experience with different kinds of therapy has led her to the simple approach of using some time each day for creative activity. She believes that creating mandalas is one of the best ways to free your mind and get in contact more deeply with yourself.

By painting and drawing mandalas in this workshop you will learn to interpret the basic elements of a mandala and how to use it as a tool for self-knowledge. 

All materials will be provided.

Transforming Our Trash

We understand we are responsible for the reality we live in; therefore, we must work hard to go further towards a more sustainable society, in harmony with nature.

A CREATIVE RECYCLING WORKSHOP

Joel & Tati are “artivists” (artist + activists) who believe that certain changes do not come from leaders, but surface from collaboration, dialogue and social exchange. For some years the duo have travelled with a project called Permact (www.facebook.com/Permact) offering workshops like this so as to give the opportunity for people to rethink about consumerism and waste.

Transforming Our Trash

Join Tatiana & Joel to learn various ways to reuse some of the solid residues generated in our homes to create many different objects. Examples will be provided of the many options we have to increase the impact created from the trash that we generate in our daily lives.

This is also an opportunity to talk about and learn how to reduce our consumerism and waste to become more conscious consumers.

Each participant will exercise their creativity to create useful and/or beautiful objects from the so-called trash instead of simply wasting it.
