Instructor: Heidi Smith, Director, Center for Grief Education and Support.

Throughout history cultures have used masks for multiple reasons including war, religion and theater. Oftentimes masks have been worn as protection or to hide what is underneath. In grief, it is easy to wear a mask to cover our emotions or to protect ourselves from others who are well intending, but do not understand all that grief encompasses.

Through this two-hour mask making workshop we will discuss various aspects of grief including changes, memories, feelings, regrets and how to honor our people who have died as we continue to move forward with our grief.

Come prepared to share briefly about your person in a safe and understanding environment.
Masks and creative materials supplied. Dress for mess, we will use paint and glue.

Thank you to Seasons Hospice for making this workshop possible. Mask Making Workshop is related to the new exhibition, Grief Unmasked. On view March 19 – May 16, 2020. Stay connected by joining the Facebook Event Page.
