Spirit Boat Making Workshops:
Boats are easy to make. You are guided step by step in an open ended process that invites healing and self expression.
Make art and surprise yourself in a supportive and grounded environment.
All Materials Supplied - No previous experience is necessary.
The three dimensional boats are made of plastic water bottles cut apart and re-connected. This shell is covered with stained tracing paper, glued down with gel medium and resembles an animal skin. Once the skin is on, the form can be pierced, tied, wrapped and decorated with personal items or various materials. Paper bags are also used to make canoes or kayaks.
