We’ll demonstrate techniques and tips specific to different types of gardening tools and offer hands-on practice during class so students can get a feel for cleaning their tools and honing a sharp edge.

Expect to walk away with a working knowledge of different files, whetstones, various oils, lubricants and other tool cleaning and maintenance supplies. In addition to learning how to extend the life of your existing hand tools, you’ll learn what to look for when you need to purchase new tools that can stand the test of time.

Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub
Feb 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub |  |  |

At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and our special guest scientist Beth Drees will explain not just HOW to make slime, but WHY the whole thing works! Using this new chemical knowledge, kids are encouraged to create test batches of slime to explore their favorite textures by experimenting with different combinations of ingredients until they find the perfect recipe. Once their slime is just right, we’ll use ratios to create a mega-batch, add their favorite custom mix-ins, and package individual portions to hand out as special DIY valentine gifts for the whole class. Even grown ups will have fun engineering fascinating new goops with their kids, and at the end, everyone will walk away feeling like a chemical engineer.

This workshop will be held at the STEM Action Center’s Innovation Hub in Millcreek, where you can have all the fun of slime and leave the mess behind!

Please note: a parent or guardian must be in attendance with their child/children. The $29 ticket allows entry for one child and one parent. An additional $10 for entry of another child with that ticket.

What’s Ya Crown? A Youth Art Workshop for Basquiat @ Workshop SLC |  |  |

Youth Art Workshop Celebrating Basquiat
In honor of Black History month we celebrate the historical figures, ancestors and legendary creators of our joined history.

Of the greats in art you cannot forget the iconic crowns of Jean Michel Basquait, the self portraits and the colors that charge your mind with wonder. In this family workshop we ask you to think who in your life needs to be reminded of their crown? All of us!

So in this workshop you will work as a family to create a scene of crowns for each family member.

Take your family portrait on site, print it out and create those images using the language of Basquait. Is your dad your superhero? Is your dog your favorite creature? How can you incorporate the artistic expressions of Basquait in your family portrait? Decide together who and what you want to honor and create.

When you’re all done look at how you’ve come together to create a piece expressing what unity and creativity can produce.

Mar 10 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
An Immersive Evening with Jane Clapp: Through the Body @ Wasatch Center at The Episcopal Center of Utah |  |  |

Join us for a powerful talk by Jane Clapp on the alchemical intersection of the body and psyche!

We are excited to bring Jane Clapp, expert in Jungian Somatics, to Salt Lake City for this engaging look into our own psyches, through the lens of the body.

Opening Poet: Angelika Brewer, Ogden Poet Laureate
Live Music: Mindy Dillard, Musical Alchemist
Featured Artist: Emma Goldgar

Schedule:
6:30-7:00 pm Live Music & Mingle
7:00-8:30 pm Immersive Talk
8:30-9:00 pm Community Social

1.5 CEUs available (Additional $5 )

Combining depth psychology principles with an understanding of the neurobiology of chronic and traumatic stress, we can develop a deeper relationship with ourselves with somatic awareness as a door into the unconscious psyche. Stepping into a more conscious relationship with our moment-to-moment bodily sensations and autonomous nervous system states allows us to work with parts of ourselves that evade our minds and make more conscious choices about how we relate to others and how we participate with the collective conscious and unconscious forces around us and in us.

About Jane Clapp:
Jane is a psychotherapist, an advanced candidate with the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts, and an expert in the intersection of the body and psyche. For over twenty years, Jane has been a movement and somatic coach and embodiment educator working with a diverse clientele all over the world. Bringing together many years of somatic study and clinical experience, along with extensive personal Jungian analysis and professional training as an analyst, Jane developed Jungian Somatics™.

Depth Workshop with Jane Clapp: Body & Psyche @ Full Circle Yoga |  |  |

Join us for a special workshop to experience the intersection of your own psyche through your body, in a small-group environment with Jane Clapp, the creator of Jungian Somatics.

Due to the space requirements for the experiential nature of this special workshop, spots are limited and this one-time experience will likely sell-out.

4 CEUs included for Utah Mental Health Professionals

Join Jane Clapp for a 4-hour learning experience to be introduced to the 6-pillars of Jungian Somatics: a foundational overview of this emergent and potent body of work that explores the inseparable relationship between somatics and Jungian psychology.

Be introduced to the anatomy of the psyche and how it is mirrored in the body. Experience practices that Jane has evolved from 20 years of working with movement therapy and somatics, and training in Jungian psychology.

The Six Pillars:
1. The process of embodied active imagination to explore unconscious material via the body through intuitive movement and symbolic image creation.
2. Principles of archetypal somatics and trauma as an embodied spiritual injury.
3. The neurobiology of spirituality and the embodiment of the Self.
4. The neurobiology of creativity and the unconscious psyche.
5. Somatics of transference and countertransference and the shared field via the unconscious psyche.
6. Introduction to the somatics of dream interpretation.

Don’t forget to join us for the Immersive Talk on Friday, March 10th!
