Intuitive Language 2019 Spring Equinox Ritual Mask-Making Event
Our 2019 Terracina Intuitive Language Spring Equinox Event is set to be one of our most intriguing yet! Amanda Lattin and Kayrene Kelley of Leather Girl Kelley will be co-teaching this one-of-a-kind workshop. The class will take place on two separate days. Day One will be held on Sunday, March 17th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at Kayrene’s brand new studio in Scotts Mills, Oregon. Day Two will be held on Thursday, April 4th from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at Terracina’s new space in Portland, Oregon.
In this workshop-style class, Amanda will explore the role of masks in cultures and rituals and the symbolism of masks. We will examine the role masks play in our own intuitive language and how they can both benefit and hinder our personal growth. Building on this deep dive into the history of masks and their connection to our intuitive language, Kayrene will guide each participant in crafting their own leather ritual mask. These masks will be fantastically beautiful treasures which will last a lifetime, and can be used for decoration, costume events, rituals, and art.
Participants will learn to design, carve, stamp, mold, and heat treat their custom leather masks. Kayrene and Amanda have selected four mask designs for students to choose from to use as a pattern guide for their mask shape. Or, Kayrene can help students create their own original mask shape. Each participant will get to choose the type of leather they want to use for their mask, carve the design, decorate the mask using leather stamps, then mold the mask to fit their face, and heat treat the mask to hold the shape. Once these steps have been completed, Kayrene will keep the masks at her studio and complete the setting process.
Participants will complete the mask-making process by painting their masks using paints designed specifically for use on leather. Kayrene and Amanda will be joined by Jenny Worth-Fitchtner of Rose Roots Design Studio for this part of the workshop. Kayrene and Jenny will support students in their mask painting process with insights and inspiration from their jewelry and art design and crafting experience.
This Day Two workshop will be held concurrently with Amanda’s Intuitive Language classes that evening, and participants will be welcome to watch students create Zentangle (meditative drawing) archetype cards. It is a great way to explore Intuitive Language class, or an opportunity to invite a friend to come to class with you! Kayrene and Jenny will be hosting a pop-up shop in the Terracina space during this event, with special offerings for participants.
Please note: If you are unable to attend Day One and would still like to create a mask, Kayrene and Amanda will be crafting several additional masks, which can be selected and painted on Day Two.

Kayrene Kelley of Leather Girl Kelley began designing and creating in 2008 after dabbling in leather work for 3 years. Items are all one of a kind and constructed with repurposed silverware, welding wire, copper pipe, other found items, and, of course, leather. Although not all the leather is repurposed, as much remnant leather is used as possible. The designs are edgy and often described as “naughty and nice”. The Leather Girl Kelley design and creating studio sits above Abiqua Creek in Scotts Mills, Oregon, where nature pours in the windows for inspiration. All LGK items are made with intention and are guaranteed. @leathergirlkelley
