Tea, Leaves and Sandwich Magic workshop:
Let’s share tea, make “sandwiches” and create magic together. By collaborating with nature and natural processes we will cook up some sensual “sandwiches.” Our ingredients will include leaves, seeds, blossoms, silk, silk organza, wool felt, tea, tea bag papers, rusty washers and hot press watercolor paper. Our endeavors will result in delicious materials with which we will assemble small journals, amulets, small mixed media collages and beeswax luminaries.
