Writing for Healing and the Artist Journal

Notice how the art and beauty around you influence your well-being. Develop a rigorous practice of writing to confront, comfort, and overcome the emotional pain that eventually settles upon us during a life lived to its fullest. And create a beautiful journal letting your words and the words of others inspire you. Using timed writings, you will write and share work in class, develop deep listening skills, and cultivate the ability to respond to the work of other writers. Not everything that gets written becomes a poem or narrative. However, everything that gets written gives us a deeper glimpse into who we are and what we have to share.

“Having an interest in felt after dappling in wet and nuno felting, I took two FeltLoom classes under the guidance of Laverne Zabielski. Inspired, I also have completed the Sibori dying class. More than a teacher, Laverne Zabielski mentors and guides her students through art theory and color theory while demonstrating the process of the art form she is teaching.  

“Laverne’s teaching methods are based upon sound educational pedagogy, demonstrating, explaining, and collaborating. After displaying examples of  FeltLoom products and listening to her students, Laverne introduced some wool rovings, silk, and ribbon embellishments that could be incorporated into the silk and wool batting scarf that would be created in the beginning FeltLoom class. Reminding students of the color wheel and simple art theory concepts to help guide us in designing our pieces.

“I left my first class with Laverne, inspired and empowered, believing in myself as a creator of art.  

Since the first class, with guidance from Laverne and the magic of the FeltLoom, I’ve made a shawl and then repurposed nuno felting scarves, I completed a 4’ x 6’ wall hanging. I’m looking forward to expanding my Sibori dying abilities.  Laverne Zabielski is unique, being a creative, skilled artist and teacher.” —Peggy W.

Artist Statement

In my writing

a thread runs through

tightly bound to my past and future

it never unravels

always reveals

 

In my art

a thread wraps around

tightly bound

pulled tight

leaving impressions 

 

In my friendships

ideas fluid

tightly bound

connections

lead to discovery

 

In my family

delicate with entanglements

tightly bound love

forms

an ethereal web
