This session is facilitated by Katie Lenanton on 20.08.2022 (Saturday) and we’d love to have you there! The Skillshare workshops bring together Kiila and Catalysti members to meet, learn from each other and share their knowledges. This workshop has place for about 10 participants and will primarily be conducted in English (but Finnish too, if and when required). About the session: Weโ€™ll first gather in Outo Olo (Vaasankatu 15) to meet each other, and prepare for capturing the flavours we might find in a trip to the forest using alcohol, vinegar, oil, or sugar. Weโ€™ll travel somewhere easily reached by public transport in the AB zone (example, to Mustikkamaa). Weโ€™ll get situated, wander, nibble responsibly, gather what appeals, snack, and rest. Along the way, we will think about feminist practices of foraging, awareness, slowness, alchemy, and reciprocity. Thereโ€™s also time to share and learn about each otherโ€™s artistic practices. Weโ€™ll then return to Outo Olo (Vaasankatu 15) to bottle, reflect and respond to what weโ€™ve gathered. We might also have a drink from Katieโ€™s own archives! About Katie: Learning about edible organic materials is a lifelong process, so letโ€™s recognise that Katie isnโ€™t an โ€œexpertโ€ by any meansย but has been actively learning for the past 3 years. Slowing down and being curious in the forest has been an important way for her to to mediate the demands of freelance curatorial work, and her contributions to the collective practice of Feminist Culture House. Katie will offer different resources and tools for self-directed learning, and welcomes the sharing of other experiences and knowledges. You are welcome to mail to connect with her before or after the session. The workshop has no registration fee however you may need to prepare for the session by bringing clean glass jars etc. All the info for preparation will be sent to the registered participants by email. Date: 20.08.2022, Saturday. 11am-18.00. We meet at: Outo Olo (Vaasankatu 15, Helsinki) Please RSVP your participation latest by 15.08.2022. This will help us in organising the space and materials better. You are welcome/invited to share any accessibility needs, and we’ll do our best to accommodate them. If you are not a member of either Kiila or Catalysti and are interested in joining the session, then please don’t hesitate to get in touchโ€“โ€“ we’d be happy to have you with us.
