Pandemic Passings: a Work & Play Shop

Pandemic Passings: a Work & Play Shop

Work & Play Shop exploring passings experienced during the pandemic. Come tell your story through the arts.

For over a year and a half, every one of us has been affected by the Covid 19 Pandemic. Daily elements of our lives have been altered, if not disrupted, and each of us has experienced the passing of someone or something. There have been tragedies and losses, as well as silver linings: Unexpected self-discoveries and achievements.

During our virtual time together, we will explore the landscape of our Covid time, individually and collectively. Simple, if not easy, questions will be asked and the responses may be written, drawn, painted, danced, sung, spoken...the expressive medium is up to you. You will be invited to share your story, though you, of course, may choose to keep it to yourself. Listening will be as important as speaking.

Passing Project Co-Founder Tracy Penfield has been facilitating group sessions since the 1980’s, in a variety of media and venues. The Pandemic offered her the opportunity to learn how to engage the Zoom platform for groups, as well as sessions for individuals. If you have questions or concerns about Zoom, or the content of the sessions, please email Tracy for assistance:

Botanical Dyes in the Garden Workshop

Botanical Dyes in the Garden Workshop

Late summer and early autumn offer an abundance of pigment-rich plants that can be used to dye fabric. This workshop will take place in artist Emma Percy's garden, where we will harvest and work with homegrown dye plants, including marigolds, purple basil, diablo cosmos, sunflowers, and mint. We’ll walk through the step-by-step process of preparing the fibers and fabric, extracting color and creating a dye bath, and imparting color onto fabric using a few different techniques.

Some fabric will be provided, but folks are encouraged to bring their own small textiles to dye (nothing larger than a shirt please!) as long as they are made from 100% or close to 100% cotton, linen, hemp, silk, wool, rayon, or other naturally-derived fiber.

The cost of this workshop is $20 per person. Since it is taking place at Emma's home in Waltham, VT, the address will be shared privately with participants after they sign up.
We'll be outdoors so dress for the weather. Masks required for not-fully-vaccinated people while we are outside, and required for everyone if they need to go inside to use the restroom.

Sign up here:
