Likrat Shabbat is a series of open ended, process-oriented art activities which start with kavanah (intention) and grow towards mindfulness, joy and connection. Each workshop will dedicate time and space to let go, slow down, and welcome in a restorative Shabbat. Through the ritual of making, we connect mind, body and spirit, the benefits of which we continue to enjoy beyond the workshop.
July 20: Suminigashi Paper Marbling: In floating black ink on water’s surface, we will delve into Shabbat’s themes of light and dark. The Suminigashi technique of paper marbling is a quiet, meditative process influenced by the subtlest movements of air whose results, when printed on paper, reveals a complex universe of organic curves and lines reminiscent of topographical maps and tree rings.
