Crafternoon :: Dia de los Muertos

2018-10-21_Diadelosmuertosart.png

Crafternoon is back! This fun-filled art workshop will encourage kids to put their creativity into action! Using recycled materials donated by the Austin Creative Reuse we will create mixed medium projects to match each season.

$5 per child

Workshop projects are geared for ages 4 and up, but younger children are more than welcome to participate with the help of their parents.

Come create your very own altar box for Dia De Los Muertos! While we are getting ready for Halloween, it's easy to get caught up in all the ghosts, witches and jack-o-lanterns, but for some this is a time to honor the life of passed loved ones by creating beautiful altars in their name. Paint calaveras, cut and paste colorful fabrics and papers and more to assemble and decorate your altar box.

Grab a spot at our craft table! Enjoy a refreshing beer, delicious coffee or tea and a tasty treat from the many options on the menu. It's a Sunday event you don't want to miss!


About the host:
Camille Lema is a local artist running an art collective called Free Rent ATX who host events to share and promote working artists. While also known as an independent artist, Camille has worked in child care for over 6 years as a teacher and nanny. Over a year ago, she began setting up art workshops in her home to not only share her love of art, but also spark the imaginations and creativity within any child who wished to participate.

Dream Conversations, Dream Community

Dream Conversations

Bringing conversations about dreams to the larger community as part of everyday life

With very few exceptions, everyone dreams every night -- even when dreams are not remembered -- and there are innumerable benefits to not only learning about your own dreams but also in having conversations about dreams, on a regular basis, with other people.

Join us for an open forum to talk about dreams and dreaming and to learn ways to invite dream sharing and dream conversations as a normal part of everyday waking life. You don’t have to know what a dream ‘means’ in order to have a meaningful conversation about dreams and dream experiences with friends and family.

Our conversation can take many directions, and possible topics include:

  • The value of sharing dreams and listening to the dreams of other people, especially on a regular basis.
  • Techniques to help connect with one’s personal dreams and their message(s).
  • Listening and responding to another person’s dream.
  • Open-ended questions that help a dreamer find personal meaning in a dream.
  • Practical application of dream messages.
  • Talking with kids about dreams and encouraging/supporting dream conversations.
  • Discovering larger landscape of the dream world and the role of dreams in navigating, evaluating, and creating the kind of world we want to live in.

We live our waking lives in interconnected relationships (human and non-human, local and global, known and unknown) and our dreams speak to these connections and interactions. And while it seems that we dream alone each night, we also dream as part of the larger world.  We dream together as much as, if not more than, we dream alone. We dream, not only for ourselves, but we also dream for -- and with -- each other. Please join us for Dream Conversations for a Dream Community.

Victoria Vlach has been working with dreams for over 30 years. She has facilitated a variety of dream-related workshops and classes through the years, was Founder and Organizer of the Austin Dreams Meetup (2006-2013), and was a periodic contributor to Dream Network Journal (1998-2014).

Kids' Halloween Costume Swap

Sunday, October 7th
10am to 12pm

We're hosting our own BSH Halloween Costume Swap! Save money, reduce landfill waste and commune with your neighbors.

The costume swap will take place on Sunday, October 7th from 10:00-12:00 p.m. Drop off children costumes any time October 3-6 so folks can have an assortment of costumes to choose from at the beginning of the swap on October 7th. 

Don’t worry about sizes or the age of the costumes. Just make sure each one is clean and in good condition. Don’t give away something that you wouldn’t want to receive.

We are also accepting costumes from those individuals who just want to donate to the event and not receive a costume in exchange. You don’t need to bring one to get one. This is a "leave what you can - take what you need" kind of event. Any costumes not chosen by the end of the swap will be donated.

The swap is free of charge.

This is a great way to start off the fall holiday season by recycling, donating and having fun, all at once!
