Come Sit With Me on My Mourning Bench

Come & share your thoughts about Death & Life, Decay & Transience, Cemeteries & Art on Saturday October 22nd from 1:00 – 3:00pm.  We’ll be working with Artist Maria Gaudin who has focused her art on themes of death & decay in nature & human life. The group will have the opportunity to share thoughts about death from our different cultural perspectives.  Then Maria will guide the group in using mixed media and wood to create  a “mourning bench” – for the Night of All Souls at Mountain View Cemetery on October 29th.  This workshop is intended for teens & adults from all different cultural backgrounds. Contact for more info.  The afternoon will begin with tea, refreshments & time to share experiences.  Thanks to Vancouver Foundation & Neighbourhood Small Grants for providing funds to run these workshops at no charge.
