Collective Becoming
Thursday, January 16, 2020, 9 am-2 pm
Ages: 6-15
Fee: $45/$35 members

Registration is closed.

What stories, questions, and connections can emerge from a shared activity like cooking a meal or sewing together? Taking a lead from artist Lee Mingwei, and his Dining and Mending projects, we will design spaces for collective interactions. Outside, we will share favorite recipes and design a meal of local food that we’ll cook over a fire. In the studio, we’ll trade ripped or damaged clothing with a mending partner. As we mend these articles of clothing, we’ll learn about ourselves and each other by sharing stories about the clothes and how they were damaged.

Free to members and dogs, or with admission to the sculpture garden.

Bring your canine friends for an afternoon of romping in the garden. In the winter, cross-country skiers and snowshoers also welcome, and in the warmer months, we encourage picnicking.

January 19, 2020 - 12:30pm - 2:30pm

with Sue Pezanoski Browne & Katie Hobday

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.

Sue Pezanoski Browne and Katie Hobday, Lynden’s teachers-in-residence, invite you to participate in the Sound Tree Project, the focus of their collaborative artist residency. Working in a grove of trees on the Lynden grounds, Pezanoski Browne and Hobday are constructing an environment filled with clay chimes that they make and fill with personal narratives. This exploration of art, nature, memory, and materials is informed by their thinking about movement and migration—about life as movement interspersed with pauses of various lengths.

zouzschool01

Fee: $65/ $55 members per session (all materials for making 12-20 incense pieces included)
Registration: Space is limited; advance registration required. Register online or by phone at 414-446-8794. Registration for the January 19 session is now by phone only.

Learn the basics of making your own natural incense. This workshop introduces a Japanese style of incense-making using traditional materials. Mike Paré, drawing from the history of incense, introduces students to a variety of aromatic herbs, spices, tree resins, and powders; discusses the philosophy of fragrance formation; and teaches participants to roll cones or joss sticks. Each participant will finish the workshop with 12-20 pieces of incense. Additional incense materials will be available for purchase.

The workshop consists of three parts:
Part 1: Incense Burning
Participants are introduced to historical and cultural aspects of incense. They will get acquainted with incense materials by burning them with charcoal and a censer. Creative and interactive exercises will involve incense burning and sampling ingredients such as frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, patchouli, sage, and a dozen others.
Part 2: Formulation
We discuss philosophies of fragrance formulation and combination. Participants choose from the selection of prepared incense materials to create their own blend. Only organic or wildcrafted materials are used.
Part 3: Hand Rolling Incense
Participants mix and shape their blend into a burnable form by hand rolling cones or joss sticks. Drying and storage of incense will be discussed.

NOTE: Rolled incense takes up to 48 hours to dry completely. Participants are encouraged to bring a small, airtight plastic container to transport the finished incense.

About the Artist
Mike Paré is the founder of Zouz Incense - a natural incense company. Paré has a background in visual art, education, and anthropology. He lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

What better way to experience Lynden in the winter than by lantern light? Join Jeremy Stepien in the art studio beginning at 3 pm for this popular annual family workshop to make a lantern (or bring your own). Visitors of all ages can enjoy designing and decorating lanterns made from recycled jars and tea light candles. Embellishments include tissue paper collage, punched-tin lids, and reeds and wires (for handles). Make your own or work together to create a lantern for your group.

At 5 pm we embark on a lantern-lit walk through the garden. We'll stroll through Lynden's back acres, introducing you to the mysteries and unique features of outdoor life after dark. We'll end with a bonfire and hot cider.

The garden will open at 10 am as usual; the walk will begin at 5 pm.

IMGP6349


Fee: $110/$99 members (all materials included)
Registration:Advance registration required. Register by phone at 414-446-8794.

Participants will produce a series of pendants by collaging materials and covering them in resin. First, you’ll make a mini-collage by choosing from a large selection of decorative papers, photos, and small objects--charms, beads, shells, etc.—and arranging them in a diminutive pendant tray. Then the tray will be filled with clear resin and will harden into a unique pendant. The possibilities are endless! Learn how to prep and reduce bubble formation to get lovely results and expect to bring home at least four pendants by the end of the day. Students are encouraged to bring their own materials and mementos, or collect items on Lynden’s grounds, if desired. No experience required, and all materials supplied. Bring a bag lunch and beverages, and dress for the weather if you would like to do some outdoor collecting.

Note: Students will need to bring boxes or containers to carry their pendants home. You will be transporting curing resin which needs to stay flat and be protected from dust. Low, even boxes with lids (plastic or cardboard shoe boxes, takeout food containers, clamshell containers, Tupperware, etc.). Your pieces will need to be taped down and put in a flat part of the car, such as the back floor.
