Gelli printing, “stained glass” vases and more:
Gelli printing is a process of creating multi-layer prints using a gelatinous plate. These can then be used to decoupage a vase or jar for a stained glass look. A candle will shine through and create a sparkling effect! Gelli-printed pages can also be used to make larger collages , or bound into a journal for “found” poetry, a process of verbal collage using cut-out words and phrases, or art journaling.
Cost: $125 for both days, including all art materials

I am pleased to announce a new opportunity:
Myth, Magic and Storytelling with SoulCollage®:
A Weekend Retreat with Anne Boedecker and Gail Byrnes
Genesis Spiritual Life and Conference Center, Westfield, MA
April 13-15, 2018
“We gain (our) full dignity and power…only when we create a narrative account of our lives…and forge a coherent personal myth that combines elements of our cultural myth and family myth with unique stories from our own experience.” (Sam Keen, in Your Mythic Journey)
Are you ready to learn more about SoulCollage? Would you like to explore using this unique process to tell your own story? Come join Anne Boedecker and Gail Byrnes for an intensive weekend retreat, expertly designed to guide you deeper into the magic and mystery of SoulCollage®. This retreat will weave together journal-writing and SoulCollage® card-making to stimulate your creativity and strengthen your connection with yourself and others.
Using your SoulCollage cards and journal-writing exercises you will be able to unearth and expose your familial and cultural myths and rewrite your personal narrative to reflect your strength and find new meaning. You’ll be able to share your story in small groups in as much depth as you wish. Through this process you can reclaim the richness of your heritage and let go of stories that no longer suit you.
The magic of this experience is in how writing will inspire your card-making and how your cards will inform your writing and story-telling. There is also magic in sharing our personal narratives with others. The collective wisdom of women’s stories is a healing salve for the wounds of the world.
At this weekend retreat you will enjoy:
- 3 days and 2 nights at the lovely Genesis Spiritual Life and Conference Center, with comfortable accommodations and 3 delicious meals a day
- tables full of new and unique images and unlimited card-making supplies
- quiet personal time as well as communion with other soulful women
- opening and closing rituals to mark sacred time and space
- drumming and sound healing
- shamanic journeying
- a step-by-step guided process of journal-writing and card-making
- the magic of storytelling and wisdom-sharing
This retreat will begin with registration at 5 pm Friday, April 13, 2018 and end Sunday April 15 at 3 pm. There will be an optional art journal workshop Friday afternoon from 1:00 to 4:30.
Cost for this inclusive retreat is only $450 per person. For a payment plan a deposit of $150 is required; with 4 monthly installments of $75 the full amount is due March 1, 2018. PayPal and personal checks accepted.
