2016 Workshop descriptions



Acrobatics


Learn how to tumble, stand on your hands, and make a human pyramid! In this acrobatics workshop we will play with the basics of forward rolls, cartwheels, handstands, group acrobatics, and more. Suitable for all ages and skill levels. Just bring yourself and a desire to learn, have fun, and see the world upside down. We've got the mats!

Community Quilts


Since 1991, New Old Time Chautauqua has created and donated over 400 Baby Quilts to at risk infants—medically, mentally or financially challenged. Come be a part of this on-going project and design a quilt top to be sewn into a “blankee” for a baby! For all ages. No sewing experience required. All materials provided. 

Deep Clowning


Find your freedom in silliness and serious fun! Called by some "the smallest mask" and "the mask that reveals," the red nose of the clown connects us to the understanding of the heart. We find ourselves transformed when we put on the nose, and reconnect to our essential selves. Discover yourself and the way the world looks with a nose!

DIY Home cleaning solutions and stain removers


If you are looking for an alternative solution to buying expensive and toxic cleansers, come and learn how to make your own cleaners with simple and effective ingredients that you probably already have in your home now. I will also demonstrate some tricks on how to get certain stains out of clothing. If you have some clever tricks for cleaning of your own, please bring your ideas and share with us!

Face Balancing


Learn how to balance everyday objects on your finger and even your face!

The Fitted Sheet - Know When to Fold ‘Em


A workshop to musical accompaniment about learning the secrets of folding a t-shirt in two seconds, fitted sheets, pillow cases, pants, short and long sleeved shirts, napkins, and, dare I say it, non-conforming undergarments.

Flying knots


Learn to tie knots with a flick of your wrist, seemingly by magic. Simple knots with a simple rope with far from simple results! This unique skill is sure to impress simply anyone!

Hula Hoop


Everyone gets a turn in this group hoop jam and skill-sharing workshop. All ages and experience levels are encouraged. A trained teacher will be available to guide you through a dizzying array of tricks or help you master the basics. Don't be left out of the loop in the hooping revolution.

Juggling


One of the most classic, most impressive, and least dangerous circus feats of all! Come learn how to wow your friends, family and random party guests with your newfound skills at the New Old Time Chautauqua's juggling workshop.

Kiddy Corral


Come play! This is a safe space for the very young of all ages. A gentle introduction to an assortment of such wonders as bubble blowing, feather balancing, tumbling, clowning, mask making, and more. Pure joy! Here is a place to start if you are feeling a bit tender or sensitive.

Loving Your Watershed


Think of the lymphatic system as the body’s watershed, a fluid-transport system conveying lymph filled with hormones, nutrients, lymphocytes, white blood cells, proteins and enzymes as well as chemicals, cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, toxins and heavy metals through the body to be recycled and eliminated from the body. Clogged lymph nodes result in weight gain, fat and toxin storage, cellulite, exhaustion, cancer, and weakens the body making it vulnerable to disease. This workshop is designed to help participants understand the importance of a healthy lymphatic system, the potent effects of lymphatic drainage massage, and how to use daily self-care methods and tools that encourage healthy lymphatic flow.

Make a Greeting Card ~ by Yanna Hanson


Tired of buying expensive greeting cards for your friends? Learn how to make Collage Cards, a fun and easy technique of gluing pictures from magazines (and anywhere else you can find them!) onto a blank card to create a personal work of art. No art experience necessary ~ if you are of an age that can use scissors and glue, then this workshop is for you! All materials will be provided and you can take home your masterpiece!! Make your OWN mark, not a Hallmark!!

Mask-making


From earliest times, masks have had spiritual and ceremonial significance. How do you and the world feel different when you are wearing a mask? Play with color, line, form, and substance. Come explore the nature of masks and mask making. With simple materials you can create a mask for yourself. Surprise yourself, your friends, and family, and have fun discovering a new you! 

Medicinal Salves and Dreamcatchers


This workshop will consist of using traditional Alaskan herbs, including the use of Melaluca healing oils. Oils have healing properties that can help with skin disorders, arthritis, aches and pains. There will also be a few oils for perfumes. Dream catchers will be made from willow branches with various beads and buttons.

Puzzle Creation - Ideas, Logic, Words, Math, and Fun!


Join puzzle-maker Roderick Kimball for this hands-on workshop where we will discuss, work and create puzzles of all kinds. Well, almost all kinds. This workshop isn’t about jigsaw puzzles. It’s about words, math, logic, ideas, and fun. Everyone will create several puzzles including a 3-dimensional puzzle to take home. Bring yourself, a puzzling friend, your curious puzzling mind, and any ideas you think might be a good start to a new puzzle creation. (They are!) All materials will be provided.
Appropriate for teens and adults with an interest in learning about how puzzles are created and how to make your own.

Qiqong


Together we’ll practice a gentle form of exercise that involves simple free-flowing movements that are evocative and fun! Like painting a Chinese landscape with your whole body. Qiqong (pronounced chee-gung) means energy cultivation. With roots in Chinese medicine and martial arts, regular practice reduces stress, supports health, and promotes awareness in activity. No equipment or athletic aptitude required.

Song Swap


Local musicians and anyone who likes to sing are encouraged to bring instruments and their favorite songs to share. All ages are welcome.

Lectures


THE DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY BY PAUL MAGID


Did you know that there is a law based on a unanimous United States’
Supreme Court decision that governs the Federal government’s right of
sovereignty over all of what it considers formally Native American territory?
Legally it is called, “Johnson vs. McIntosh 1823” This workshop will explore how this law came into being, how it remains the judicial bedrock of land ownership in the United States, and how it continues to control every aspect of Native American life even to this day. 

Life Behind Barbed Wire


The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, ordering all persons of Japanese ancestry to be removed from the west coast, creating the mass removal and confinement of over 110,000 men, women and children, the majority of whom were American citizens. 
This story is about my mother, Michi Murayama’s experience in a Japanese Internment camp in Jerome, Arkansas during World War II. Her words describe what it was like to be an American citizen swept up by the nation's fear, panic and wartime hysteria. Mom was an "ordinary" person living in extraordinary times. Perhaps it's this "ordinariness" that makes her story compelling and reveals the resilience of the human spirit.
Photographs from our family albums and the National and Smithsonian archives and Michi’s award-winning Memory Quilt will illustrate her narrative.

Everyone Welcome!

Join the pre-party festivities (at 11:30 am) in celebration of the Co-op’s completed downtown improvement projects. We'll celebrate and then parade down Holly Street in grand fashion from the Downtown store parking lot to Maritime Heritage Park.

This year we are especially pleased to welcome The New Old Time Chautauqua—a perennial crowd favorite and America’s only traveling Chautauqua—back to the party.

Chautauquas are based on the idea that learning continues throughout life. The Chautauqua Movement began in 1874, bringing a mix of education and entertainment to communities throughout the nation. When a Chautauqua came to town, all normal activity stopped while citizens dedicated a week of their lives to learn, be entertained and join with their community. 

The Flying Karamazov Brothers will headline the variety show, along with The New Old Time Chautauqua! After the show, members from the troupe will host circus arts workshops.

Local up-and-coming talent in the Bellingham Youth Jazz Summer Band opens the party at high noon, and powerhouse old-school rock-and-roller Jasmine Green will close it down from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
