Join artist in residence Jenna Knapp and poet KP Kaszubowski for their second interactive poetry workshop at the garden following this fall's first iteration of Actively Missing You. Together, we will continue to honor and celebrate the life of the Norway maple that long provided shade and shelter at the top of the hill overlooking the labyrinth.

February invites us to hibernate in our safe spaces, nestle into home and sink into being with ourselves as we allow quiet and slow change to take place through the darkest season, curious as to who we will be when we emerge from the winter with more light and warmth. In this second iteration of Actively Missing You we will continue to explore themes of grief, change and loss, but this time through the lens of transformation and personal evolution: shedding layers to make room for new growth in anticipation of spring.

During the workshop, we will discuss the labyrinth's history, silently walk its winding path, and use poetry prompts to generate more written material. There will be time to share and reflect together as a group, and you'll have the option to contribute your writing to be engraved into the logs at a later date, allowing the Norway maple's history to live on.

Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of writing experience. We will spend time outdoors in the labyrinth and inside in the studio. Wear comfortable clothes for the winter weather, and bring your own writing materials, beverages, and snacks for the afternoon.
