Folklore and Fairy Tales ~ Beyond the Fairy Dust ~ 5th Annual NICE Workshop #1
Ages: 16 and up
May 11, 2019
Discussion & Workshop, 2 – 4:30pm
$25 per person, Square: https://squareup.com/store/LSS/item/nice-workshops
Walk-ins welcome but space is limited: download the 2019 NICE Workshops Registration Form

Think all fairy tales are brightly-colored, lighthearted, and filled with Disney tunes? Think again! Join us from 2 – 4:30pm for an imaginative and creative workshop that’s part of our 2019 NICE project! Wearing your fairy-themed clothing to the workshops is encouraged! This year, our passages come from these four folklore and fairy tales: The Story of Hunahpú and Xbalanqué (in Popul Vuh, trans. Ximénez, c. 1700-1715), The Little Mermaid (Hans Christian Anderson, 1836), The Ballad of Tam Lin (nd), and Hansel and Gretel (The Brothers Grimm, 1812). We’re looking at these original folklore stories and fairy tales through a modern lens, to relate them to today’s world with fresh insights. The workshops focus discussion on the original themes, which are usually somewhat darker than what we find in translations/retellings and films in popular culture over time.
Each workshop offers a different discussion focus, but both workshops offer opportunities for people to discuss the stories and selected passages in terms of imagery, symbolism, and cultural context, and we connect to them in ways relevant to personal experiences. Workshops also make time for and encourage people to create new art, in all mediums and genres, inspired the selected passages. All mediums & genres are welcome (writing, 2D art, 3D art, music/songwriting, etc). Bring your own artistic tools (paper, laptops, paints, etc) or use what we provide: this year, we’ll guide the creation of abstract art and provide 6×6 canvases and acrylic paints. Workshop attendees are not required to attend or present at the October 5 event, but we encourage it! Find out more about our annual NICE project and this year’s selections on our website: http://loganstreetsanctuary.org/nice-noblesville-interdisciplinary-creativity-expo.
Space is limited at our workshops, so we encourage early registration. We encourage payment via our secure Square Market: https://squareup.com/store/LSS/item/nice-workshops

Join Ellen as she leads a workshop in writing poetry inspired by the classic folklore and fairy tales selected for this year’s 5th Annual NICE Project! Ellen guides participants in generating several poems, and shares strategies for revising. Participants will leave with one or more drafts to revise with an eye towards possibly presenting at the 5th Annual NICE Event in October. Ellen’s writing has appeared in Northwest Review, Marlboro Review, The Sun, Oregon Humanities, High Desert Journal, The Stay Project, youshare.com, The Polk Street Review, Oregon Home, and Going Green, an anthology from the University of Oklahoma Press. Besides teaching writing at private venues, Ellen also teaches writing and literature at Oregon State University and works as a writing coach and editor. A graduate of Noblesville High School, she is thrilled to be back this summer to teach at LSS!
