Earth Doll Workshop with Visionary Artist ROSIE MAC!
Earth Dolls are wee bundles of gathered joy!
Each doll emerges from the hands of the maker who has tapped into their unique world of imagination and story.
As your Earth doll takes shape and form, special energy grows between you, potentially unlocking your connection with your inner world.
Creating your Earth Doll becomes a journey of discovery. It is in this ‘flow’ state during the creative process that important insights into self may be received.
Art making acts at the level of the spirit because art is the language of the spirit!
Making your doll can be a beautiful healing process that may be powerfully moving in nature.
When you create an Earth doll you are reflecting the loving spirit that moves through your heart, mind, and hands to show or teach you something.
Your unique doll becomes infused with your energy as you create with the elements and bring her into this world. It is not about making a perfect form.. it is all about the invitation to create that which inspires you, the maker, to play with what is in front of you (the critic is given full permission to just toddle off!).
The inclusion of gathered organic matter brings a certain sacredness to the creative process. Known as "ecological spirit", others may think of this in the dimension of shamanism. The Earth doll has a gentle way of teaching you how to listen deeply to these elements and energies which may guide and inspire your artistic creation.
The changing seasons offer us unique gifts: seedpods, flax flowers, feathers, sea shells and so forth. These gathered or found organic items will add meaning and story to your Earth doll. Her completed form will be a talisman of your connection to nature, intuition, and creativity.
This is an invitation into your own field of consciousness, your innate CREATIVE force, and encourages you to share the most vital of aspects of yourself through creative self-expression, allowing you to step into your own power and authority.
This is an invitation for you.. for you to celebrate LOVE as being the fabric of the Universe, in all its forms, and leads you to honour the Sacredness of that which is your SELF!

About Rosie Mac- https://www.rosiemac.nz/
I chose nursing as a career and spent 42 years working in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom. A nudge to paint as a form of self-care emerged in 2012 and despite being told I couldn’t draw when I was 14, I nervously “had a go”. I did almost two years of part time classes doing landscapes and still life, but something seemed to be missing.
I wanted something more but didn’t know what that was and painting from a photograph didn't provide the creativity I was looking for.
I then began taking different classes in different mediums and techniques at The Drawing Room in Christchurch to explore and expand my creative side. The classes were both fun and satisfying.
In 2013 a chance encounter on Facebook with a newly graduated Intentional Creativity© Facilitator Denise Daffara of Australia and subsequent introduction to Kerry Lee, from the San Francisco Bay area, USA introduced me to Intentional Creativity©. This method of art had heart, and I was completely captivated by its mystery and magic. It was “an aha moment” when the light went on! I decided to undertake the nine-month Intentional Creativity© Teacher Training so that I could share the method with others.
The next few years was a very personally difficult period in my life. My two brothers died of cancer within a year of each other, and I sustained a head injury, subsequently developing ongoing concentration issues.
"I can honestly say that I would not have been able to navigate that time in my life if I hadn’t had the compass of Intentional Creativity© and the wonderfully supportive group of like- minded women in the Intentional Creativity© community.
Bringing mindfulness and intention to the art process created a different perspective and experience for me"
I am proud to call myself a Visionary Artist and Intentional Creativity© Facilitator and am now sharing my passion for a process that needs no previous experience that anyone with an open heart and an open mind can do.
