Create Your Own Oracle Cards
taught by Lesley Patterson-Marx
Oracle cards are cards with images that help in connecting you to your intuition and inner wisdom. In this guided weekend-long workshop, participants will have the opportunity to follow creative prompts to produce their own unique deck of 20 or more oracle cards. In a nurturing, supportive atmosphere, students of all levels can explore personal imagery through mixed media techniques as they design their cards. Artist Lesley Patterson-Marx will share demonstrations on relief stamp making, image transfer techniques, mixed media collage, and more. Other helpful information will be covered to aid in developing your images, including color symbolism, as well as plant and animal symbols throughout many cultures. Students will even make their own paper box in which to contain their divinatory delights! They will also have the opportunity to begin the process of developing a guide book for their deck that can be continued and finished at home.
Bring your favorite magazines for collage, and other paper ephemera such as photographs, your old paintings or drawings to cut up, markers, colored pencils, paints, favorite paintbrushes, and any other materials you can think of that you’d like to play with. Bring supplies and collected imagery that you’re ready to part with for our classroom “flea market” table.
