Turning moments into myth -- what makes a tarot card? Explore the possibilities and design your own.
Erica will facilitate a discussion on the a-ha moment -- the moment when a tarot card and a situation perfectly align. Worried about your health and get positive results back from a company that uses the sun as a logo? Lose your keys and pull the Four of Swords, then find the keys under your bed? We'll talk about traditional tarot iconography matching up with a situation as well as details from modern decks matching up with a situation. We'll discuss what makes these experiences mythic!
Then we'll create a tarot card for our own mythic experiences. We'll find an event in our lives that can be illustrated symbolically. Colored pencils, markers, collage materials, and other treasures will be provided, as well as examples from handmade decks!
This is a fabulous project for all levels, including brand-new beginners, because it gives you a chance to look at the cards from a fresh viewpoint and discover how they relate to your own life. I hope you can join us!
