Fundraiser Workshop

Saturday, February 15, 2014

9-12 noon

Pacific Room at the Presidio

Event Recap

Participants took creative, unique, and experimental time out to express what they held dear in a fun, easy and memorable way. We used recycled plastic bottles as the base. Then we applied a variety of art materials such as twigs, feathers, wire and lace to the bases.

Hearts can hold messages, intentions, wishes and other important pieces inside, while the exterior is covered with various papers.

Participants were guided every step of the way. After the class, we evaluated our Healing Hearts and spoke about the creative process.
