Sacred Knot Workshop // Knot Sequence with Lise Silva on Saturday July 28th

When : Saturday July 28th, 2018 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Where : Cameron Mark’s Studio in Santa Cruz

Details : 4 hours, $185 all materials & booklet included

Description : Workshop will include creating a sequence of personally chosen knots called "Temple Cords" for your space.

Knotting connects us to the past and grounds us in the present, using hand and mind in skillful play like an active meditation.  The limitless possibilities of a single cord, connecting and intertwining, was thought by our ancestors to explain the workings of the cosmos and activate the powers of the subconscious.  From the manifestation powers of Chinese knots to the metaphysical principles in Celtic designs, craftsmen and women from around the world communicated systems of belief through knots.  By expressing our dreams through a system of symbols, knots also propel us into the future.  

Knotted wallhangings are a way to bring the meanings of specific knots into your space, as many ancient cultures believed knots could help us to remember and manifest.  As "priest cords" defined spiritual goals in a vertical sequence of knots attached to a monk's robe, temple cords are a sequence of sacred knots defining your goals to hang in your home.  In this 4hour workshop you will learn about basic knotting technique, how to make ancient knots from around the world and their meanings, beading cord and tassel construction, and create a wallhanging for your home based on a sequence of knots that express your dreams and desires.  You will be designing your own wallhanging to reflect your life journey using a simple guide and in-class instruction.  Included in this course is cotton rope, brass charms, beads, yarn tassels in several colors for you to add to your piece.  You will also take home a booklet to inspire future creations.    

Materials included in the course: 

50 feet of cotton rope
Small brass charms 
A knotting board
An instructional booklet guiding you through 12 knots and inspiring future projects
A sheet of graphing paper for note taking and design planning
Cardboard sizer for tassel-making

Materials for the student to bring:

Pen or Pencil

Yoga mat or cushion for sitting  

(Optional!  Many people find it more comfortable to work with this large quantity of rope, sitting on the floor)

About Lise:

Lise Silva Gomes is an artist based in Oakland, CA.  She explores the power of symbols through her work with Sacred Knots creating fiber jewelry and wallhangings with handmade cord entwined in knot designs that serve as a metaphor for life experiences, dreams, and deep desires.  Her collaborative jewelry designs with metal worker and Spirit Speak tarot creator Mary Elizabeth Evans, called In The House of Lovers, is a ceremonial collection of Artwear where they experiment with innovative design and mythic iconography.  As an extension of Lise's exploration in symbology, meditation and visualization are a tool in her creative process. She leads guided meditations as a tool for manifestation, lucid dreaming, mental/emotional balance, creativity and relaxation.

Sandal Workshop with Stace Fulwiler!! April 28th (sold out!!) & April 29th (sold out!!)

***Deadline to sign up is April 20***

Our Saturday sandal making workshop sold out quickly so we decided to add another date!

Saturday April 28th: Sold Out!!
Sunday April 29th: Sign up here !!

From Stace:

I'm very excited to teach sandal making in Santa Cruz. a place that boasts year-round sandal-wearing weather!  Join me at Cameron Marks for a day of sandal making!  The workshop will be held down the street from Cameron Marks in their beautiful, inspiring studio.  Light snacks and tea will be served. 

In this one day workshop I will walk you through making your very own pair of handmade leather sandals.  No experience is necessary, and both men & women are welcome.  You will learn the entire process of sandal making over the course of the day, using your own feet to determine fit, style and color.  Classes are limited to 7 people to allow for plenty of individual assistance.  All the tools and supplies are provided, and you'll have many different leather colors to choose from.  You will choose from three styles: a toe ring sandal, a sandal that buckles at the ankle, or a two-strap slide sandal.  The strap width, leather colors, and strap placement is all up to you.  View photos of past workshops and student's sandals here.

Making sandals entirely from leather, including the soles and heels, is a traditional way of shoemaking that has been practiced for centuries.  And in my opinion, they are also the most comfortable, beautiful and durable!  In the process of making your sandals, you will also learn basic leather-working techniques and become familiar with shoemaking tools. You will leave with your very own pair of self-made sandals and a list of shoemaking supply resources in California. Bring a friend or family member and enjoy a day of working with your hands to craft a pair of sandals you will wear for years to come.

Details:

Workshop fee: $250, includes all tools, supplies, leather, light snacks and drinks

When: Sunday April 29, 2018 from 11am-5pm (some sandal makers might finish a little earlier or a little later)  We will take 30 min for a lunch break; you can either pack a lunch or grab takeout nearby

What to Bring: Working hands and outfits! Bring snacks and a water bottle.  We will also work outside briefly when using the sandal glue, so bring a sun hat or sunscreen if you'd like protection.  If you would like to use the belt sander to finish your sandals, bring a dust mask (not necessary, I can finish your sandals if you prefer)
