Artist-in-residence Kim Khaira spent part of the summer working alongside master dyer Arianne King Comer and walking the grounds with Native herbalist Angela Kingsawan. These interactions informed the next phase of her residency project at Lynden: harvesting plants from the grounds and developing the natural dyeing techniques used in this workshop. Her practical and artistic experiments with indigo, turmeric, goldenrod and other materials gathered at Lynden have elicited everything from poetic lamentations on natural fibers to a series of sample batik prints in a range of colors and a variety of saturations.

In this workshop, Khaira invites you to gather around the dye vat and create batik gifts for upcoming holidays unique to you, your family, and your culture.

Bring a lunch; complimentary herbal drinks provided.

About the Artist
Kim M Khaira is a community worker and artist based in Milwaukee from Penang, Malaysia, whose current work draws on the sense of home, creating home, and of making “sense” of the literal and abstract. She is exploring these themes in Pulang Balik: I Am Going Home Too, her residency project at Lynden.

fullmoonsoundbath

Fee: $15/ $10 members
Registration: Advance registration required. Register by phone at 414-446-8794.

The full moon is a time for releasing and cleansing. The light of the full moon illuminates any obstacles or interferences in our lives. Once we recognize our blocks, it becomes easier to let go of what didn’t serve us in the most recent lunar phase. It is an amazing time to reevaluate and recollect. 

Join Milwaukee’s own sound healer, Catherine Soteira (Cat Ries), initiated by Akhilanka of the Temple of Singing Bowls in Mysore, India, to celebrate the full moon with a healing sound bath. Sound baths are an ancient form of deep meditation; they include various ambient sounds playing in a space where you can hear and feel their vibrations.

The sound bath lasts approximately 45-60 minutes.

The soundbath will be indoors; please bring a yoga mat, blanket, or towel to rest on for the duration. All are welcome to come early and walk the labyrinth while it is still light.
