An exhibition of mixed-media figures intuitively crafted by ‘The Circle of Creative Healing’. The ‘Nature Spririts’ are formed using driftwood, shells, beads, feathers, vintage fabrics, ribbons and sometimes items meaningful to their creator or intended recipient. Each has a hand-made clay, fabric or metal face which gives character and brings the figure to life. The figures all have a unique energy and a special message to pass on.
Art doll making links the realm of creativity, dreams, past memories and forgotten glimpses of our true nature. Our ancestors called them spirit dolls, spirit keepers and medicine dolls. They also help us connect to the earth and mother nature in a meaningful way. Many of the Nature Spirits in the exhibition are for sale or against a donation.
There will be a Nature Spirit Making workshop on Saturday 9th November from 10am-12 noon at Studio 38 Gallery. All materials provided and a charge of €15 per person is made from which a donation will be made to the NGO Kopin- Empowering Communities. Pre-booking is essential as places are limited.
The exhibition is open MON-SAT from 10am-2pm until Saturday 30th November
