Details at a glance: Online Workshop

November 2nd, 6:00pm to 8:00pm | $10


We often seek out the flowers, leaves and such that are perfect, with no blemishes or defects. This presentation highlights subjects that are not perfect, such as flowers that have character, double headed flowers, decaying fall leaves, the deformed coneflower that stands out as flawed and hence different and beautiful, lichen as it creates abstract patterns, etc. Traditionally Wabi-Sabi in “The Art of Imperfection” but it can be so much more, even a life philosophy as it teaches us to find beauty in everyday life. Wabi-Sabi is a kind of anti-aesthetic, an alternative to the dominating discriminatory ideas we hold about beauty. It is a way of honoring the seasons and knowing that we are always in a state of both becoming and falling away. Wabi Sabi describes the philosophy that beauty can be found in the everyday, in the old and in the imperfect.


The top 5 topics covered during this workshop:

  1. The philosophies of Wabi Sabi will be unveiled. 
  2. The beauty of imperfect and/or unconventional subjects will be highlighted. 
  3. The concept of slowing down and appreciating the beauty of everyday life will be explored. 
  4. The idea that things that might be overlooked or transient or aged can be beautiful. 
  5. Explore the view that “there is a crack in everything, that is how the light gets in”
