Here is the latest news on Solstice/
We have another FREE workshop this Saturday the 6th 9:30- 11:00 at the Goodman Community Center. Demo. of mask making! Hands-on cardboard sculpture!
I had a meeting with Betty from Starkweather creek about Solstice/ Procession of the Species. A few things are now set:
Day of solstice puppet and maskmaking ( with Meghan from Absolutely Art providing art supplies and helpers) beginning at 2 pm.
The will begin at 6 pm
The bonfire will be at 9 (or dusk)
Here's where we're at with Procession:
Large puppets made and in progress:
deer with flowering antlers
and many other small scale masks of all kinds of creatures...
This Saturday the 6th from 9:30- 11:00 am at the Goodman center we will work on some clay sculpture masks. I will demonstrate making a clay model and covering it with paper mache to make a mask. I am going to be making one of Charles Darwin!
We talked about having a reprise from last year of a horn dance or some other musical component. The procession to the bonfire site also needs some structure or narrative- we discussed starting at the waters edge... ideas? We would love to have anyone else jump in with concepts... Feel free to post comments on the blog!
