Welcome to an unforgettable afternoon at Malakta!

29.6. 2019 2-6 p.m.

‘Once upon a time there was a girl….’
There is one genre of literature that has touched all of us and has not left our side for centuries: fairy tales.
We all know them as stories for children that tell them about good and bad forces, about respecting animals and never entering the woods alone. Yet, it rarely comes to our minds to fetch these stories out of the childhood realms and see them as companions on the phases that we undergo as adults.
By retelling the European folktale Thousandfurs we will dive deeply into a story that is far more than entertainment for kids – a story about traumas, passionate love, withdrawing in nature, learning to forgive and empowering oneself. Step by step the illustrator Johanna Lohrengel will guide you through the archetypal figures of a heroine’s journey that finds healing in the wilderness and how this can relate to many mental health issues we are facing nowadays.
During the workshop it will be possible for the participants to print their own Thousandfur linocut copy and prepare a paper craft spell.
And afterwards, the story will do it’s work in each of us.

Smell workshop “Recreating a memory”

The sense of smell is closely linked with memory and can bring back to the experiences from the past.

During the workshop we will together with Eglé Plytnikaité explore the world of natural substances and look for the smells that are significant to each of us. Every participant will create their unique scent palette and mix their own mist that recreates the memory they want to relive again and again.

All the materials will be provided. However, we encourage you to bring your notebooks to mark all the new info and ideas.

Eglé Plytnikaité, Lithauania and Johanna Lohrengel, Latvia are part of On Northern Routes, a union of artists seeking to explore the memories and values of a Northern identity.
