Grinding Paper Diamonds with John Love
Saturday, July 29 | 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Levine Museum of the New South
Cost: $15 per person; $10 for members
In Grinding Paper Diamonds the absurd is a must, the fantastical is encouraged, and impossibility is sent spinning out the room on its pointy little head. Prepare for an unlikely triumph…yours.
Grinding Paper Diamonds is a suite of writing, meditative, and origami/object-making workshops dedicated to unearthing the most curious of gems lurking in a psyche. Questions from Love’s provocative Book of Lists aid participants in dismantling stifling tropes of limitation as new narratives deemed worth living into are constructed.
Pedestrian materials such as paper, ink, pigment, paper clips, orange thread, silver tape, and salt reference how the seemingly “undistinguished” is really just a breath away from magnificence.
Participants are encouraged to bring a favored writing instrument and/or journal if desired.
