“Women have wrapped our-selves in shawls and wisdom since our feet touched the earth, expressing our innate sense of creativity.” –Ardath Finnbogason-Hill
Feelings and Fibres … is a four part, eight hour workshop for women who have a basic understanding of knitting (knit & purl only!) and who would enjoy exploring the creative process through the use of colour, texture, fibre, nature and story. The workshop provides a “centre-ing” to self-retreat and sacred space for the creative process to evolve. Women wanting to reconnect with, or rediscover, their unique creativity will experience the freedom of artistic expression in the creation of a knitted “Wisdom Wrap”, “Wall Shawl”, Brighid’s Cloak or ritual garment, without the use of a pattern. See the attached brochure for more details!
Ardath Finnbogason-Hill: Ardath’s knitted garments are fanciful and mysteriously beautiful. The imagery of art has been influenced by her Icelandic heritage, her readings, travels, her women’s circles and her own spiritual journey. Ardath’s creations have been displayed at numerous art shows. Her commissioned pieces are seen in several countries. One highlight was the creation of a Wrap entitled Fire, Ice and Mother Sea for the first woman to become President of Iceland. In her imagery, there has been a consistent message of empowerment, guidance and reassurance.
