WORKSHOPS: Palm-Reading and Life-Casting Workshop
Sunday, June 8th from 12-4pm
Students will first use an alginate-based non-toxic process to make a full life-cast of their hands. Then, tarot and palmistry expert Zac Monday will teach us the basics of palm-reading and we will read our wax casts. Students will partner up and assist each other during the making of their life-casts, and then later practice palmistry on one another. Each student will receive a personalized reading by Zac and a wax cast of one of their hands to take home.
