Art Residency Participation

Dear precious woman,

after the successful completion of the first Yoniverse and overwhelming positive feedback from participating women and exhibition visitors I like to invite you to become visible and discover your own power in this process.

If you identify as female I would like to invite you to participate in this unique and powerful piece of work in the time between 4th – 24th September 2018. In this time I will provide slots of individual sessions averaging 2,5 hours for a woman to pose their yoni/vulva for being painted in the medium of watercolour.

Kids Sewing Course

Wednesday 5 September
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

This is a 4-week after-school sewing course to teach your child to use a sewing machine, safely and confidently. And they will make some easy sewing projects.

At age 8-12, children have the mental capacity to learn the basic concepts and sufficient manual dexterity to operate a sewing machine. It’s actually the perfect age at which to learn. Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.
