Upcoming Workshops

Join the Bath House Cultural Center, The Writer’s Garret and teaching artist Lisa Huffaker for a series of journal writing workshops for older adults. Journaling allows us to contemplate, connect, and respond to the things we experience. It also allows us to share our observations with others in our community. All you need is a point of view, paper, and a writing utensil. This month’s topic is Breaking Bread Together.

Breaking Bread Together:
Explore the moments of shared meals as a meaningful experience with others. We’ll explore the bonding experience of eating with others, whether it’s the popsicle we shared with a grade school friend or a celebratory feast with loved ones gathered around a table on a special day. We’ll look at these experiences from a purely sensory perspective, explore the symbolic idea of “communion,” and enjoy the ways these perspectives overlap.

Lisa Huffaker creates poetry, collage, and assemblage. She is a frequent visiting artist at the Nasher Sculpture Center, a recent C3 Visiting Artist at the Dallas Museum of Art, and creator of White Rock Zine Machine, a micropublishing project offering artist’s books through sculptural vending machines. Her poetry appears or is forthcoming in 32 Poems, Diode, Spillway, THRUSH, Tupelo Quarterly, and elsewhere. Her multimedia installation, Code Room, is currently on view at Ro2 Art. Her book in progress, a collage/erasure transformation of an antifeminist marriage manual written in 1963, was recently featured at TU Delft and Cornell Tech’s 3rd Workshop on Obfuscation.
