Create an Heirloom to Treasure @ The Sound Temple
May 27 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Create an Heirloom to TreasureContribution: $50 This is a ticketed event, no door sales available

Common Threads Woven Through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP
A family heirloom is a direct connection to your history and if you already possess a family heirloom, it’s no doubt you treasure it.

But what if you could create a family heirloom to be passed on to your loved ones in the future?

There is a sense of joy in giving and receiving something handcrafted, repurposed or containing a component from an old, broken family heirloom. The history and meaning are elevated by the materials used and by the care and thoughtfulness which has gone into creating it.

Create an Heirloom to TreasureRather than buying mass-produced jewellery, often using recycled pearls and beads, you will be able to create a unique piece which you can wear yourself, gift to someone special and, in time, know that it may be passed on through generations to come.

In this workshop conducted by Perth Hills jewellery designer, Denise Binz, you will be shown the basics of forming wire and earring hooks and combining them with beautiful beads and crystals to make the components to create your own special pair of earrings or pendant.

All materials are provided, however, if you have some treasured beads, crystals or stones from an heirloom you have been gifted, please brings them along.

During this hand-on workshop, Denise will show you:

    Create an Heirloom to Treasure
  • Safety guidelines and the “how to”” when using wire, pliers, bench block and hammer.
  • How to make and then practice different types of earring hooks, simple eye-pins and twisted loops with copper wire which will enable you to decide what suits you.
  • A selection of “bead and wire” kits. You can choose a kit which appeals to you before you start to make your own unique piece of jewellery – either a pair of earrings or a pendant.

Once you get started and find that you love creating your very own heirloom jewellery and want to go home and make more, the essential 3 plier sets will be available to buy.

Denise Binz is one part of a Perth Hills husband-and-wife duo who discovered together that they had a talent for jewellery design.

Denise Binz - Common Threads Woven Through CommunityDenise and her husband Alain took part in silver and lapidary courses which allowed them to see limitless potential in the variety of uses and combinations of silver and stone and metals and wood.

Inspired by the surrounding nature of the Hills where they now have their home and studios, they find themselves spending every available hour creating magical pieces to share with the world.

Denise is a Reiki Master and a Sound and Crystal Healer and she hand-selects all crystals for their energetic offerings before being cleansed and transformed into a piece of magical jewellery and put out into The Universe to find their way to their new owners.

Repurpose Your Much-Loved Denim @ The Sound Temple
May 27 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Repurpose Your Much-Loved DenimContribution: $80

Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Do you have a wardrobe overflowing with pairs of jeans which are either too tight, too big, too flared, too straight? Or maybe you’ve come to a stage in your life when tapping into your innate creativity is calling you?

Sometimes we can have an emotional attachment to throwing out our jeans as it feels like we’re rejecting a dear old friend.

Repurpose Your Much-Loved Denim

Instead of taking the jeans along to your local op shop, why not put your creativity and your sewing skills to good use and make a funky denim over-the-shoulder bag? And, once you’ve created one bag and the compliments start to fly in, you could make them for family and friends for birthdays and Christmas as you’ll be given a take home pattern and instructions.

Denim is such a tough, resistant fabric that it’s great for repurposing and in this workshop, Jasmin will show you how, using your sewing machine, to recycle your old jeans into a handy over-the-shoulder denim bag and you can create your very own style!

Jasmin Maddox’s connection with denim, natural dyeing and used fabric evolved from a young age where growing up on a self-sufficient farm and the need for hard wearing fabrics was a must.

Fast forward 25 years later and the realisation that the years of dedication and hard work to achieve success in the corporate world no longer held the value it once did and with the arrival of her son a change of mindset and self was put into motion.

Using recycled materials like denim, pallets and driftwood provides the opportunity for each piece to be truly unique and to Jasmin, and her home-based business, represents that the opportunity to facilitate a change of mindset, repurposing and conscious buying for the local community.

Guided Meditation Circle @ The Sound Temple
May 27 @ 7:15 pm – 8:15 pm

MEDITATION Gratitude and LoveContribution: $15  (includes a warming cup of tea)

Gratitude and Love – Fill your Heart with the Glow of Thankfulness

A powerful, creative force flows through us when we focus on the areas of our life we are thankful for. An attitude of gratitude is a powerful statement of self – love and worthiness. It resonates an acknowledgement of love to the Universe which is met and then returned, often resulting in the flow of more abundance. May is the month of expansiveness and the recognition of the light that exists in our lives. These meditations will leave you with a sense of deep peace, radiance and grace.

Here at The Sound Temple, we are blessed to work with some amazing facilitators who bring their gift of meditation and mindfulness to our space here in Perth Hills to share with you every Monday evening.

Meditation is a practice that gives balance emotionally, physically and spiritually and has been proven over and over again to be an incredibly powerful way of manifesting your heart’s desires and can be transformational when it comes to turning your dreams into reality.

These sessions are perfect for everyone – whether you are about to start your journey into meditation or whether you have felt the benefits of mindfulness and the positive impact it can have on your life and want to commit to a regular practice.

Buddha was asked, “what have you gained from meditation”? He replied, “nothing, but let me tell you what I have lost – anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death”.

We welcome you with soft hearts and open arms to our sacred space every Monday evening from 7.15pm for an hour of Guided Meditation with one of our facilitators.

Be taken on a journey where you can see in your mind’s eye the path before you and be prepared to manifest your wildest dreams.

When: Mondays,  7:15pm to 8:15pm
Please arrive 5 minutes early to enable you to leave the stresses of the day behind you and allow your body and mind to relax into the experience.

Includes: The evening concludes with a debrief and discussion about your experience if you wish.

River Blue Conscious Fashion and Film Discussion Night @ The Sound Temple
May 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

River Blue Conscious Fashion and Film Discussion Night Contribution: $10

Common Threads Woven Through Community

FILM NIGHT
The film River Blue is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on what’s happening to our rivers and asks us to consider – Can fashion save the planet?

Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, River Blue spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.

River Blue Conscious Fashion and Film Discussion Night Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favourite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival.

River Blue brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.

Help propel positive change and protect the world’s rivers.

We will show the film then there will be an opportunity after for discussion and reflection about – What now? How can we make a difference?

Dawn Steel, the founder of Common Threads Woven Through Community, will talk about how she heard India Easton, a Year 12 Steiner School Student who presented this topic two years ago as part of her final year, and how it inspired her so much that she decided to launch this cutting-edge annual exhibition which will cut to the core of this grass roots movement that is shredding decades of fashion industry propaganda, hype and environmental abuse.

Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Spend the day in the hands of an amazing fashion designer as she helps you add a nip and a tuck to your garment which will give it a much-needed facelift and make you fall in love with it all over again.

With formal training in fashion design and work experience in bridal and alterations, Mariana Kirova has transformed her love for clothing into a passion for upcycling by reworking the old into new.

The workshop will discuss the main points to take into account when refashioning, what to consider, including an overview of effective techniques and upcycling methods for clothing with a demonstration of examples from Mariana’s personal work wherever possible.

You will be able to discuss, plan and work on a unique style of your own and you will also get all the help you need from Mariana on any sewing, designing, styling, final visualisation or whatever the case.

Mariana Kirova Upcycling Is The New Black

Mariana Kirova has achieved many milestones during her journey to date and she is thrilled to be able to bring some of these to her students and the like-minded creative souls she has the pleasure of working with.

Celebrating the power of making with the respect to the environment, some of the places Mariana has showcased her upcycled collection and one-of-a-kind pieces are at the first Eco Fashion Week Australia, Brisbane’s second-hand fashion festival ‘Revive’ 2017, Jane Milburn’s Slow Clothing Project 2016, at Common Threads Woven Through Community 2018 and a couple of publications in the international makers magazine Altered Couture, USA. She has been an advocate and presenter at Common Threads Woven Through Community since its inception in 2018.

Mariana’s main focus is to keep as many as possible good quality textiles and clothing in circulation as opposed to discarding onto landfill.

Make A Silk & Fine Merino Scarf WorkshopContribution: $120

Common Threads – Woven through Community

HANDS ON WORKSHOP

Have you ever wanted to make something gorgeous to wear that you absolutely love?
Something you can wear in winter to keep you warm or in summer as a throw or a shawl over your shoulders?
Join Kim Gordon at this hands-on, heart-felted workshop where you will create your very own gorgeous scarf made from colourful tissue silk fabric and fine merino wool.

The layering of fine merino wool and silk has been designed so that you will walk away with a stunning creative piece which will turn heads whenever you wear it!
The perfect way to decrease your wardrobe and reduce your footprint is to add a few elegant accessories such as your very own handcrafted scarf. This workshop will impart the knowledge and information for you to be able to create your very own pieces using felt at home.

This is an intimate workshop with a maximum of 4 participants and you will receive focused attention to learn the skills required to felt beautiful pieces of clothing and art which you can practice at home.

Kim Gordon, who lives locally in the Perth Hills, first learned to felt about 10 years ago and fell in love with it. Ever since she was a young girl she loved the fibres of different fabrics which she reflects may have come from her mother and grandmother teaching her how to knit and crochet using many different wools and cotton.

Over the years Kim has developed a love for natural fabrics and has mostly felted as a much-loved interest. Kim has also participated in many workshops with well-known Australian and International felters giving her a variety of skills to share.

Kim Gordon joins the Common Threads Woven Through Community Team

Kim has been part of the Common Threads Woven Through Community team since its inception in 2018.
Her motto for felting is ‘From Fibre to Fabulous’… “To start with tiny and delicate fibres and watch them turn into a strong and durable piece of fabric or a delicate art work is amazing” says Kim.

Guided Meditation Circle @ The Sound Temple
Jun 3 @ 7:15 pm – 8:15 pm

Guided Meditation CircleContribution: $15  (includes a warming cup of tea)

The Dreamer Awakens – reconnecting to your Soul Purpose

It may sometimes feel as if we are stumbling through the course of our lives, caught up in an endless loop and working on auto pilot. How do we turn this around, from just existing, to truly inhabiting the full extent of who we are? Every Monday during the month of June, we’ll consciously reconnect with our deepest Soul Purpose. We’ll awaken the dreamer within and begin the journey home to ourselves and all that we were born to be.

Here at The Sound Temple, we are blessed to work with some amazing facilitators who bring their gift of meditation and mindfulness to our space here in Perth Hills to share with you every Monday evening.

Meditation is a practice that gives balance emotionally, physically and spiritually and has been proven over and over again to be an incredibly powerful way of manifesting your heart’s desires and can be transformational when it comes to turning your dreams into reality.

These sessions are perfect for everyone – whether you are about to start your journey into meditation or whether you have felt the benefits of mindfulness and the positive impact it can have on your life and want to commit to a regular practice.

Buddha was asked, “what have you gained from meditation”? He replied, “nothing, but let me tell you what I have lost – anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death”.

We welcome you with soft hearts and open arms to our sacred space every Monday evening from 7.15pm for an hour of Guided Meditation with one of our facilitators.

Be taken on a journey where you can see in your mind’s eye the path before you and be prepared to manifest your wildest dreams.

When: Mondays,  7:15pm to 8:15pm
Please arrive 5 minutes early to enable you to leave the stresses of the day behind you and allow your body and mind to relax into the experience.

Includes: The evening concludes with a debrief and discussion about your experience if you wish.

Nordic Myths – Tales from The Tree of Knowledge @ The Sound Temple
Jun 7 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Nordic Myths – Tales from The Tree of KnowledgeContribution $80 – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available.

We Invite you to Join us as we Enter the World of Mythic Imagination

Roll up, Roll up, Roll up …. Hear all about it!!

This would have to be one of the best night’s out Perth has on offer! Over three hours of magical stories, sensational sound and a fabulous feast as the grand finale!

Gather your family and friends and warm your heart and soul at one of our exquisite storytelling events.

The night will unfold with our professional Storytellers leading us on a journey into sacred story.

Old mystical tales, which have been passed down from generations, are delivered in the way our ancestors told them. You will find yourself completely mesmerised and enthralled as these stories transport you to bygone years, a far cry from the busy world we live in today.

We asked one of our much-loved storytellers to tell us why these events held at The Sound Temple were so important and here’s a snippet of what she shared …

“The Sound Temple is one of the amazing organisations that have recognized the importance of reviving this ancient tradition.
They’ve seen first-hand how people are mesmerised and deeply moved by the power of oral storytelling.
That moment you hear something of your own experience in a story it’s magic. It’s healing.
It creates a feeling of shared meaning and understanding.

Creating community spaces in our society is so important. Places where people can come together and be opened up by a new experience – and then share that sense of awe or wonder or curiosity with each other.

These storytelling events are unique in that they are immersive – story, sound, community. A powerful mix”.

Another highlight of the evening is brought to you by the magic of sound. The storytelling theme for the night is supported by a sound narrative facilitator who will use their voice and their instruments to weave layers of intrigue and mystery in and around the story which will leave you absolutely spellbound.
Jesse
And the Grand Finale is the coming together after the story and sound to gather together to enjoy a feast which provides a welcoming hearth to congregate around, sharing in heartfelt conversations and your journey! Joining together around story, sound and food nourishes our heart, body and soul and creates true community.

Not knowing what to expect but willing to give it a go, here’s a wonderful 5 star review from one of our lovers of story which we’d like to share …

“I went in not exactly knowing what to expect, all I knew was I would be listening to some stories and a meal after.
Little did I expect to enjoy some music, while talented tellers weaved their tales for us at a beautifully reclusive and peaceful retreat in the hills.
Afterwards a feast allowed us to enjoy the surroundings and chat to late about the experience we just had.
Extremely recommended for those who love performance, art and finding hidden gems in Perth”.

This event is held in the Perth Hills at the lovely grounds and studios of The Sound Temple.

These events are aimed for an adult audience and the content is not filtered for children.

When: Friday, 7th June 2019
Start: Please arrive 15 mins early for a 7:00pm start
Finish: 10:00 pm

Included:
An evening of live storytelling and sound performances by a selection of Perth’s leading storytellers and musicians.
