See you there!
If you're in Guelph this Sunday, consider stopping in at the Bookshelf at 2 PM to hear Anna Bowen perform poetry from ReMediate. Anna will share the stage with Kate Cayley, who is launching her book "When This World Comes to an End", and writer Claire Tacon.
Please join me and 5 other storytellers from different mediums at Silence (46 Essex) for "Storytelling & Cultural Narratives." We'll be talking about how we can use stories to challenge dominant cultural narratives. The event is free and starts at 7 PM. Please visit the Facebook page for details.
This workshop is an Inner Transition event as part of Guelph's 2014 Resilience Festival. The full list of workshops is at guelphresiliencefestival.ca.
Here's my new website! Please have a look, let me know what you think, and feel free to share or link back. Thanks to Kimm Khagram for getting this online.
ReMediate requires the following materials:
A kiddie pool to be filled with paper pulp. It must be over 3X3 feet; square shaped with a lid would be ideal.
Paper to pulp and use in the quilt. Shredded or not. can shred in presence of person donating if they wish to ensure confidentiality. Loose leaf 8.5x11 printer paper- white or colours, separated if possible. No cardboard or newspaper please. Construction and coloured tissue paper okay too.
Cotton or wool embroidery thread. Any colour. No polyester please (doesn't biodegrade as quickly).
Curved quilting or tapestry needles.
1/2 inch plywood to make drying racks for the paper quilt squares. Offcuts at least 36 inches long will work.
One last request:
Indoor space for paper making in adverse weather conditions. An unused corner of a basement or garage in Eden Mills / Guelph would be wonderful.
Please contact me if you are able to donate any of these. Thanks for supporting ReMediate!
