Community Art Making: Amulet Pouch Making Workshop

Event date: 
Sunday, June 9, 2024 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Come out to Community Art Making at Charis! This new monthly event is a free and open-ended creative kickback for our community, hosted by local trans and disabled artists Barry Lee and Noah Grigni. This is a safe and accessible space for collective healing through art, welcoming all skill levels, all art forms, and all ages. Art supplies will be provided potluck-style; we will share what we have, and we invite you to do the same! The events are on the second Sunday of each month. This space is free and open to the public, with suggested donations to Atlanta Solidarity Fund and/or Charis Circle. This program takes place in person at Charis Books and More, 184 S Candler Street, Decatur, GA 30030. No reservation or ticket required. Masks are required inside the store. 

This amulet pouch workshop will be facilitated by community art-making regular Lisa. Since ancient times people around the world have carried their most tender keepsakes in pouches near to their heart. There is no time like this distressing present to remember what tethers you to this beautiful planet, what keeps you fighting or brings you joy. Little to no sewing experience is required. Bring your fabric scraps, old jeans, or whatever you might want to repurpose, or bring nothing at all! We’ll have supplies for you to use and can teach sewing basics.

This event is free and open to all people, especially to those who have no income or low income right now, but we encourage and appreciate a solidarity donation in support of the work of Charis Circle, our programming non-profit. Charis Circle's mission is to foster sustainable feminist communities, work for social justice, and encourage the expression of diverse and marginalized voices. https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/CharisCircle?code=chariscirclepage
