“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Together with Nature we will explore the world of color.
In this time of the bountiful harvest we will experiment with all that Nature is giving us to create beautiful fluid color. Join Kati on October 26, 9 am - noon , in her outdoor studio space on the West side of Madison. She will share about our relationship to plants and art making as we explore the color giving plants that live all around us. We will process plant material and craft simple writing tools. Participants will leave with several colors of plant based ink, knowledge to repeat the process, and a writing tool.
3 hour workshop/ $35 - 55 sliding scale
Coyote Fire workshops and classes are offered on a sliding scale fee to reach wider audiences with varying income levels. Please select the price that is affordable to you. Find more information about how to select the fee that is right for you here.
“Printmaking like sex is not solely about reproduction.” - Unknown
Woodcutting is one of the oldest forms of artmaking, beginning in China in the 5th century. The Japanese later created sophisticated images in woodcut referred to ukiyo-e or “floating world.” Come learn more about this ancient tradition of art making.
We will cut or carve a design into wood and use ink to make prints on paper. We will craft a brayer (ink roller tool) from sticks and leather. In the final step, we will print our woodcuts on paper.
You will need to bring a design that you are interested in carving. Carving tools will be supplied.

“We now know enough to know that we will never know everything. This is why we need art: it teaches us how to live with mystery…When we venture beyond the edge of our knowledge, all we have is art.” – Jonah Lehrer, Proust Was a Neuroscientist
The Women’s Monthly Hand Making Circle is a series of workshops that are designed to use the healing power of hand making to bring women together as they establish shared experiences with each other.
This friendly environment fosters a feeling of community, remembering, and belonging. Hand making happens in nature within a shelter warmed by a wood stove (on cold days when the wood stove will not be enough to keep our fingers warm, we will venture into a home setting with fireplace). All supplies will be provided and music will play (dancing is welcome)!
Let’s explore the mystery of creativity among our Sisters!
