Episode 19: How The Power of Art Can Bring Us Together with Seth Apter

In this episode of FROM MY KITCHEN TABLE, longtime supporter of WOMEN CREATE Seth Apter joins Jo Packham for a second time to discuss developing collaborative projects with other artists, his experience teaching art, upcoming workshop opportunities and more! Seth carries a strong belief in the power of art to bring people together and strengthen our communities. Whether it is a one-day workshop at a craft store or a nine-day international cultural adventure – Seth’s events going forward will be filled with so much more than just technique and projects. He has also published two books of his own, The Pulse of Mixed Media and The Mixed-Media Artist.

Seth’s Upcoming In-Person Workshops:

OCTOBER – Time Capsule

Time Capsule. “Join me at the historic Greenville Arms 1889 Inn from October 23 to October 29 and experience Autumn in beautiful upstate New York as well as a workshop adventure designed to fuel your creative and personal spirit. We will be making a series of projects, small in size but big in impact, that will each nest inside their own, individual container – think tins, boxes, bags, etc. Each of these will in turn be placed and housed inside one larger box, creating a very special treasure chest. Your unique art pieces will include some combination of handmade books, paintings, collages, assemblages, scrolls, wraps, shrines, and more. There will be community and connection and wonderful food as well! Registration is open and details are available here.”

MAY (2023) – Spain

“Join me for a nine-day cultural and creative adventure of a lifetime in Spain. Along with Jim West, the owner of Craftours – the sponsoring company – you will experience Spain through the lens of creative eyes. Our focus will be Madrid, Toledo and Barcelona. Together, our multi-day workshop will guide you in creating a Field Guide to Spain which will become a part of your daily activities. Jim will also be teaching two mini-workshops on both painting and photography. But the star of the show will be Spain herself and our activities will include multiple tours with professional local guides, an exclusive tour of a century-old Spanish sword-making factory, an optional Spanish cooking class, tour of a local family-owned winery including wine tasting, a visit to the Spanish craft village of Poble Espanhol, a visit to a family owned Spanish fan/umbrella making facility, a demonstration on the Flamenco-inspired haute couture dresses, a visit to the iconic Sagrada Família, Gaudi’s famous church in Barcelona, plus many meals, special gifts, and much more. Nine days of creative community and cultural bliss. Registration is open and details are available here.”
