Sunday, March 31 from 1pm to 3pm
NEW! Art talks and workshops that promote personal and community health and wellness.
The Green Thread • Medicine circles and planting as therapy with expert Cheryl Cohan.
This event is SOLD OUT!
The "green thread" is the essential plant-person connection. In this workshop you'll learn about the healing and creative components of plants. Discover how to use plants, colour, and design to enhance mindfulness through hands-on, sensory-based actions. The Green Thead combines awareness of patterns, colour, beauty, and the innate collective wisdom of plants and people.
Cheryl Cohan, BA, HT, MMFT, is an anthropologist, therapist, horticultural therapist, and environmental land steward. She operates from a biopsychosocialspiritual perspective with reverance for nature and the innate wisdom of both plants and people to effect healing, both personally and globally.
This workshop is presented as part of the lead-up to Art in Bloom 2019. Co-sponsored by the History Department at the University of Winnipeg, with generous support from the H. Sanford Riley Fellowship in Canadian History.
