with Denise Feldman

Have you ever created a time capsule? Or sent a postcard to a friend, or even to yourself? In this workshop we’ll reimagine a simple cardboard box into a memory-keeping time capsule and create handmade postcards to keep inside—ready to capture a peek into our thoughts, feelings, experiences, hopes and memories from this unique and challenging time in our lives. Join local mixed media artist and cancer survivor, Denise Feldman, for this virtual ‘healing through creativity’ workshop.

Denise sets a warm, inviting atmosphere and no previous art or mixed media experience is needed—all are welcome! NOTE: Prompts and themes are provided so participants may complete their postcard writing following the workshop.


Suggested Materials:

  • Shoe box, photo storage box or other container (for collage and/or painting)
  • Poster board, card stock or cardboard 
  • Magazines, children’s artwork, old photos/letters
  • Glue stick, ModPodge or other liquid glue/adhesive
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

About Denise Feldman

Denise Feldman is a local mixed media artist who discovered the power of creativity as a healing practice after her treatment for breast cancer in 2014. As a creative ‘dabbler’ who loves working with various materials and surfaces, Denise shares her mixed media processes and soulful perspective with the hope of inspiring others to tell their stories ‘on and off the page’ and clear space for life’s chapters yet to come.

“My philosophy is simply that telling our stories helps us heal by giving us the space to process our own experiences and connect with each other. Getting our stories out from our hearts and our heads helps make room for the next chapter to happen…the one just waiting there in the wings.” ~Denise
