Come and get to know other Unitarian women through playing with art or cut and paste
This is an opportunity for women to gather for creative play and self-exploration using collage or bringing your own art or craft projects to work on. After brief introductions/check-in, we work quietly at our own pace and then before closing share a bit about what we were working on and what it means to us..
The evening group meets monthly (usually) on the 2nd Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 pm in Kitsilano. This group is closed at this point because the space is limited to 8 people.
The day time group meets monthly (usually) on the 1st Thursday at UCV from 12 to 2pm.
We start with a simple shared potluck lunch and then work on our own projects and then share a bit about what we’ve done around 1:30pm
This group has space for a couple of more people. Contact Mary if you’d like to join us.
For both groups, the expectation is that people will attend regularly and we will form and deepen our connections with each other as we get to know each other through our art projects.
Scissors, glue sticks, paper and images all available – but bring your own if you wish. Calendars are especially lovely. Any magazines you bring should be taken away or recycled, or have images and words clipped for others. (We have limited storage space).
Please RSVP to Mary email@example.com
Supported by UCV’s Arts Committee.

Leadership rotates: When it’s your turn, you come early and stay late to set-up and cleanup; send out a reminder to the group. Optional: If you want to propose a theme or a special project you can, or just have a “do your own thing” session.
If you’re interested in SoulCollage®, you can find some videos on youtube to provide an introduction.
This is a nice four-minute introductory video.
This one is a good how-to Step by Step video
This shows how to use the viewfinder, marking the points of the corners for cutting.
Among the final embellishments which are often not done, there’s a suggestion to outline the edges of the pasted on images with a metallic paint sharpie.
It’s only visual. There’s (imho) annoying loud music, so just turn off the audio.
