SPECIAL WORKSHOP BY Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang 王筱雯

ATTENTION: crocheters, knitters, sewers, weavers, and all DIY/crafting extraordinaire!

ALL AGES WELCOME: Younger children can do braiding and with a parent’s assistance, can be easily involved in the process.

Red Room currently has a supply of fabrics and as an upcycling initiative One Brown Planet will be running a series of DIY sessions to make rag rugs from them to donate to the homeless people of Taipei. These sessions will be run concurrently with the Open Studio at the Red Room.

Share your skills with everyone in these sessions. We are open to all suggestions of the best method of making a Rag Rug, and also other ideas of upcycling scrap materials.

Even if you don’t know how to sew/crochet/weave/braid, come join us anyway and learn from your new friends! Then take home these valuable skills to upcycle your old sheets and t-shirt to make them into something else you can use in your own home.

BYO: crochet hooks, knitting needles, sewing needles, scissors, whatever your choice of tools!

———————————————————————

If you won’t be working on something and just want to hangout, please feel free! But we would like to remind you to respect those practicing/working on their art form.

This is a free event – for you, by you. Which means that the bar and cash register will be closed – so please bring some beverages and snacks to share. Sharing is caring!

Please inbox us to ask if you are uncertain about how appropriate the art form/materials you’d be bringing would be suitable for the shared space. Of course, power tools are discouraged (safety + noise), and fire is not allowed on the premises (sorry, metal-workers!).

Hope to see you there!
Love, Red Room

片片關懷 朵朵愛 關愛藝術文創課程
「惻隱之心,人皆有之。」儒家代表人孟子闡述了人性向善的觀點,不只是自我的修養,更深入到人性的開端──內心。我們相信人心為善,人人心中都充滿了愛,人人都想對社會上其他的弱勢族群或是幼小動物表達關懷,但常常認為自己勢單力薄,無法造就影響力,這個念頭總是與自己的惻隱之心拔河,往往讓人裹足不前,不知如何著手。
愛,就從自己開始。
關愛藝術文創工作室將開啟一堂讓關懷種籽發芽的互動課程,藉由導師的引導,讓關懷的種籽,深深重在你我的心田,再灌入滿滿、滿滿的愛,讓心底的那顆種籽發芽、茁壯,讓自我本身充滿無限的愛與關懷,透過繪畫,透過新詩創作,去感染周遭的每一個人。相信在這樣的體驗之後,每個人都可以是愛的導師,再也不害怕付出關懷,身體力行實踐關愛的行動。
這套關懷種籽發芽互動課程包含:
1. 關懷互動。
2. 啟發瑜珈。(這是一套簡單的瑜珈,不需準備瑜珈墊。)
3. 冥想與觀想。(甦醒自我本身的惻隱之心,提升自我感受,刺激內在創造力。)
4. 繪畫、新詩創作 。(創作現場將有live band為您演奏音樂,為您的創作注入生命力。)
日期:104年12月27日
時間:下午2點至5點
地點:台北TAF空總創新基地 (台北市建國南路一段177 號)
費用:個人NT: 200元
家庭NT: 500元
我們歡迎各界人士參與活動,不論是個人、攜伴、好友同行或是全家一起,都可以來報名。15歲以下兒童需由成人陪同。
當日完成的作品將可參與「片片關懷、朵朵愛 愛心英語新詩大募集」以及「片片關懷、朵朵愛 愛心彩繪大募集」慈善募款文創活動,入選的彩繪作品將晉級慈善募款拍賣會。本日活動所收取的費用將用於支付場地費用、繪畫用具,以及所供應的下午點心。
關愛藝術文創團隊歡迎您的參與,並感謝您的支持
