What is a Shadow Mask

 

The creation of the shadow mask is about revealing hidden and denied aspects of your self through the mask making. These hidden parts can range in expression from sorrow to anger, weakness to strength, joy to depression and all shades in between.

 

The basic concept is built upon Jungian concept of the shadow present in all of us. In owning our shadow self, we discover healthier avenues for negotiating conflict, new dimensions of compassion, and greater understanding of our deep interconnectedness. 

 

We can’t change anything we don’t know about. And we certainly can’t change other people. So we learn to be aware of our total self, the dark and the light and then at the same time choose to make more conscious choices about our own behaviour.

 

 

The mask is made using simple sculpting techniques and materials with newspaper, cardboard paper-mache wire, acrylic paint and mixed media.

Pay What You Can

A visual textured storytelling workshop for adults and children from age 9 and up

 

Using sticks, yarns and other textiles, this workshop invites you to create a personal story stick woven with reflections, memories, and intentions for your life.  

 

Participants usually spend about 15 to 40 minutes to wind a stick with the materials and will have the opportunity to share their story. This workshop is accessible for all abilities and results in a beautiful art piece. 

 

Materials provided. You can also bring your own stick , up to 12 inches long.

"Our stories illustrate our inherent connectedness with others. In the life story of each person is a reflection of another’s life story. In some mysterious, amazing way our stories and our lives are all tied together.”  Quote from Robert Atkinson
