One Square Foot is a half-day eco-art workshop designed to address the patterns that connect humans to animals and humans to elements of nature. The purpose of the workshop is to cultivate and enrich the senses, to focus closely on what is in plain sight and see the unexplored world of nature in the forest.
One Square Foot takes place Saturday, July 19, from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at the Eco Culture Centre, adjacent to the Woodhaven Nature Conservancy, 969 Raymer Rd., Kelowna. The workshop is facilitated by Lori Mairs, UBC master of fine arts graduate and a sculptor, writer and filmmaker. Fee is $40 and participants can register by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be drawing exercises, sensory deprivation experiences, time, space and place training and storytelling. The workshop will both enrich knowledge and invigorate a sense of being a human animal in the wild.

- Folding lawn lounger
- Brown-bag lunch
- Pens and pencils
