Trunk Show with Kathy Van Kleeck: Talismans and Tools

During Saturday Art Walk, 5-8 PM, Kathy will present her work- it’s a very special opportunity for you to purchase hand-crafted sacred objects directly from the artist.

Kathy Van Kleeck crafts sacred objects, Talismans and Tools, intuitive perfume blends and incense, altar and incense bowls, and indigo dyed linen accessories.  Her intention with this spirit guided work is to share ritual and beauty to help find your center, awaken, soar

I believe the work I create can assist in breaking through the many clogs and barriers we face. Look at the work I offer, where are you drawn, where does your gaze land, what makes your heart sing and your pulse quicken? That deep, quiet place is where you’ll find your answer … your heart will never guide you astray!”

During this free one hour presentation life coach Heidi Mattern will share the simple strategy of mind-mapping. Mind-mapping helps build momentum for your creative desires and projects. Bring your ideas, questions, and enthusiasm. This presentation is geared toward “emerging” creatives as well as those who have worked in creative arenas for years. No preregistration required.

About Heidi

I am a life coach trained to International Coach Federation (ICF) standards. I have received my training through the Certified Professional Coach program at inviteCHANGE, located in Edmonds, Washington. In my work as a coach, emotional safety, encouragement and deep listening are my watchwords. I believe each of us has an inner golden thread we follow—a unique purpose that gives our lives meaning and joy. It is the honoring of this golden thread that I hold dear. I have also taught elementary school, managed my own landscape design business and led Nia classes (a dance-based exercise form). I am a musician, songwriter, journal keeper, gardener, birdwatcher and hiker. I live in Port Townsend, Washington, a small town on the Olympic Peninsula, with my partner, Richard.
