Trunk and Tarot Gatherings are a whimsical, fresh way to circle with other women while receiving clarity and insights through collage.
At a Trunk and Tarot Gathering you get the opportunity to create your own unique Trunk and Tarot collage with support from Tarot and me.
For over fifteen years I have created collages for my own personal joy and guidance, to sell, to gift, and in a variety of teaching settings. In 2014 I was inspired to blend my love for Tarot with my love for collage.
Trunk and Tarot Intuitive Art Cards are 5 x 7 postcards that are collaged using a glue stick and an array of paper images. An additional piece of decorative card stock is attached to the postcard to form a Trunk which then houses a photo copy of 3 Tarot cards that are chosen by each participant at a gathering and notes of impressions from our Reading.
Participants gather together in circle to begin and I conduct a walk through of the Trunk and Tarot process.
Each participant is given their own 5 x 7 postcard and a handout of the basic principals of Tarot.
Participants are asked to think of an area of life they want more clarity in or of a specific open ended question and write it down.
Participants begin to collect the materials for their double sided cards and are led through the steps to make their Trunk.
While I meet privately with each individual, participants continue to collage their cards.
During our one on one time together the querent draws three cards from my Rider Waite Tarot deck. The querent is then given a photocopy of each of their cards and together we come up with a few basic thoughts on the cards.
While I move on to the next participant, the querent continues collaging their card.
In the end we come together to have a bit of quite time to reflect, write down our thoughts, share our cards, and close the circle.
2 hours to a whole day based on intricacy (there are many ways to embellish the cards!), how in depth of a Tarot teaching you prefer, and how many participants.
Size of Gathering:
As little as 4 or as many 30. For a basic class there needs to be about 60 - 90 minutes for teaching and gathering plus approximately 10 minuets per participant for their one on one time with the Tarot deck.
Experience level: All: Those who have no experience with Tarot/Collage or seasoned artist.
Glue sticks, tape, decorative paper, postcards, scissors, and collage images are provided. You are welcomed and encouraged to bring any other collage materials you would like to share including magazines, personal images, and ephemeral of all types. I do bring an assortment of these items, but if you have some extra it's a great way for everyone to be exposed to items they might not normally choose. If the class is longer, the cards can be embellished with stamps, sewing, beads, glitter glue, feathers, wax, and in many other fancy ways.
I bring 20 - 30 of my personal collection of collage cards to display during the gathering and help spark ideas. (see gallery)
Starting at around $20 per person. Cost varies based on location, intricacy, and class size. I am located in Woodbury, MN and spend part of my summer in Cape Cod, MA. I'm available to travel. E-mail me
