I teach workshops in hand-papermaking, natural dyeing, bookbinding, printmaking, and cordage-making to public and private groups of all ages. These workshops can take place indoors or out, last anywhere from 1-4 hours, and can potentially accommodate as many as 25 people. Please get in touch with me if you’d like me to lead a workshop at your organization, school, event, or for a private group, and we can discuss the best way to go about it!
I also teach workshops about ecological identity and cultivating a sense of citizenship within the ecosystem community. These workshops involve group and individual visual ideation and mapping, reflective writing, and discussions between pairs and small groups in response to a series of thought-provoking questions. It can be adapted for a public event with folks who don’t necessarily know each other, or as a strategic planning opportunity for a small community of people working together towards a goal. Please contact me if this sounds like an event you’d like to host, and we can talk about what your group or event is about and how this workshop can best facilitate growth for the folks participating.
I have several years of experience in identifying and working with wild plants in the Northeastern United States for food, medicine, and creative purposes, and have led a few plant walks to introduce others to our amazing plant neighbors. If you’d like to host a plant walk at your event or organization, or if you just want to spend some time getting to know the plants around your area, I’d be happy to work with you!
