This is the fourth class in the series Currents: Free Art Workshops at the Reversing Falls Sanctuary, 818 Bagaduce Road, Brooksville, ME; held on Saturdays between January and June, supported by an Expansion Arts Grant from the Maine Community Foundation.


In these changeling times we are all thinking of how to take care of ourselves, the planet and those folks around us. How do we protect ourselves and the earth from the stresses of daily activity and still put out love? We will spend time talking about what we are grateful for and how we make it through. Participants are asked to bring what you have around, what you can spare, and what you can share. Bring leftover fabric, yarn, sewing materials, etc. There will be lots of textile items there to pick from. The plan is to make something to help us protect ourselves and/or the space we live in. I recently heard an interview on NPR where the person said, we need to make a shawl for the planet. Peace, Ron.

Ron King has been working with textiles for 58 years. He believes he was put on this planet to work in textiles.

Class size is limited to eight participants. We will be following CDC guidelines for physical distancing; all class participants and instructors must be fully vaccinated and wear KN95 masks which will be provided by RFS at the beginning of the session.
