About the teacher:

Kaleena Goldsworthy was born in Maryland and raised in upstate New York. After suffering through many years of excessive snow, she felt it was time to move to a warmer climate, and found herself in Chattanooga only six months after visiting it for the first time. The fine folks at Flying Squirrel gave Kaleena her first job behind a bar and she instantly fell in love with the hospitality industry, the history of craft cocktails, and the food and beverage industry. To further her education and understanding of spirits and their origins, she started studying herbalism and began volunteering at Crabtree Farms. This knowledge, combined with her love of the cocktail industry, led her to start creating bitters at home. This passion grew, eventually leading to the creation of her business, The Bitter Bottle. The Bitter Bottle is focused on using organic and locally sourced ingredients to create bitters and tinctures. She also continues to focus on education, creating drinks, and sharing all of this with the community.

Introduction to Candle Making

#FollowYourScentces and come join us for the experience of making your own TRH candles! Learn from our skilled and trained candle makers on how to create the perfectly scented candle. These workshops are fun for friends, couples, locals, and visitors of our beautiful Scenic City!

They fill up quickly, so grab a friend and join us!

Class Details:

  1. Workshops are 1.5-2 hours long. Please arrive 15 minutes early to settle in.

  2. Learn how to make 2 perfectly scented candles from our fragrance menu and how to choose the right scent for you.

  3. BYOB - We will provide drink ware.

  4. Enjoy a 20% off all in house products after your class for when you come to pickup your candles.

  5. Pick up your candles the next day from The Rustic House or have them shipped for $12.

About the teachers:

Is it possible to make a simple, clean-burning candle without sacrificing quality? When Emily Warr and her best friend Chelsea Cash started The Rustic House, they knew exactly what they wanted in a candle. They burned through a variety of “good” candles, but never found one that they truly enjoyed.

Why?

From gaudy containers and cheap waxes to weak scent throws, traditional candles never fit the bill for them. After hearing about how some companies used sketchy, cheap ingredients in their candles, Chelsea and Emily were determined to create a simple, clean-burning candle. 

From the time they were 14, Chelsea and Emily knew they wanted to run their own business. Creating a product from start to finish was such a rewarding thought! Since they both enjoyed candles, starting a candle company was a no-brainer. Most goals, dreams, and friends change with time, but their passion for candles never wavered. At 20, they began studying and experimenting how to make the best soy candle that they wanted to burn in our own home--not just sell!

After five years of testing, they finally formulated the perfectly scented soy candle. Upon Emily graduating with a business degree from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2013 (and convincing Chelsea to move to town), their dream finally came true --The Rustic House was established that same year. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Proprioceptive Writing.JPG

A simple method anyone can learn, Proprioceptive Writing®  (PW)  is a form of meditative writing that teaches you to  listen to your thoughts with empathy and curiosity and reflect on them in writing. When engaging your thoughts and feelings in this way, you become open, receptive and focused. The mind is freed from anxiety and you are left feeling refreshed, energized, and restored to your natural state of vibrant aliveness. 

PW is a powerful tool that can be used to:

  • Focus awareness, dissolve inhibitions and build self trust 

  • Unburden your mind and resolve emotional conflicts

  • Write and speak with strength and clarity

  • Awaken your senses and emotions

  • Liberate your creative energies

Writing is not the end of the practice, but rather the means to gain insight into and power over how we live and think. In the short term PW invigorates your mind. Over time it strengthens your sense of self and connects you to the world. When practiced regularly, PW can bring a new sense of well-being and confidence that is vital to mental health and creativity. 

This is a 2-day writer's retreat, taking place on Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 from 10am to 5pm both days. Ticket sales end for this class on Friday, July 12 at 8pm.

About the teacher:

Anne Bright is the director of the Proprioceptive Writing Center, Southeast. She credits PW with completely changing her life, one Write at a time. She has taught Proprioceptive Writing®, for over 20 years, and works closely with Drs. Metcalf and Simon, the originators of the process and authors of Writing the Mind Alive, The Proprioceptive Method for Finding Your Authentic Voice. (Ballantine, 2002).

Introduction to Gateless Writing

  • The Chattery at Chattanooga WorkSpace (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

"Gateless writing was born form the idea that we must silence judgements in order to create mastery."

In gateless writing classes, you will hone your craft or learn as a beginner in a safe environment with principles based on building up rather than deconstructing and offering resources rather than criticism. Gateless follows a set of guidelines which are strictly enforced to maintain an environment safe to create and express where the participants are invited to share in community. 

There are many reasons why this process works. Perhaps the simplest is that what the brain focuses on, grows. If we focus on what the student is doing well she continues to blossom in these areas. What isn't working, falls away. When working in a group other listeners become stronger writers because they are focusing on what works in a piece of writing and tend to emulate those strengths when they return to their own writing. So the group as a whole, becomes stronger.

Gateless is a methodology developed by Suzanne Kingsbury during her masters thesis in creative writing. She has trained countless teachers in retreat and salon as well as helped more authors come to be published collectively than any other group. Gateless is your pathway to the work you have been scared to do, turned away from, looked sideways at and lacked respect for only because you were not sure of the immeasurable nature of your own greatness and it's power to evolve into a force of nature that can blow change and goodness throughout the world.

Whether you are a beginner or a serious writer working on memoirs or a novel you will find a safe place to learn and grow your work through Gateless. No prior writing experience needed.

Writing utensils and paper provided. Students are welcome to bring their own.

About the teacher:

Kittie Diggs is the mother of four, a writer and a painter. Kittie turned to painting and writing as ways to heal from the death of her oldest son. He died from suicide when he was 18. The hardest thing for her has been to watch her other children suffer and remain stuck in their grief.

Floral Hand Embroidery

Floral Hand Embroidery

Join us in the beautiful Turnbull Building to create a hand embroidery sampler using foundational stitches (the practice round). Then put those techniques to use while stitching a workshop exclusive design using the amazing flowers from Southerly Flower Farm. You'll be encouraged to experiment with color, texture and various stitch combinations to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Bring along an interesting found object or objects, no bigger than 2"x 2", to incorporate into your design. (Things such as dried tree bark or flowers, an interesting leaf, or a scrap of wind-blown mesh...)

This workshop is open to stitchers of all levels! Just bring yourself and your imagination! All supplies included.

About the teacher:

Amanda Banks began discovering and practicing hand embroidery in the Spring of 2017. At the time, she was apprenticing on a permaculture farm 40 minutes from the nearest town. Her chores usually ended around noon...with an afternoon of rain left over each day... so she used her limited amount of internet access to watch a few videos and read blog tutorials, made a trip to Joann's, and began stitching.  Amanda's first piece was inspired by her aunt, who is an artist and master crafter in her own right...just as Amanda's grandmother was. Her grandmother hand stitched quilts for everyone of her children and grandchildren. All original, hand cut, measured, meticulously hand stitched and infused with love. These women, as well as Amanda's mother, have all inspired her to explore the creativity within herself. From the way they can make food with such feeling to the individual stitches in the numerous quilts to the plants and people that thrive under their care. 

From the teacher: "fibrrous is me. Reaching into and outside of myself. Working to make the colorful ideas and feelings into tangible, three dinensional objects. fibrrous is an observation of the world around me, a means of physical and emotional expression, a therapeutic practice, the way I can most fully express my creative visions."

This class is part of the Summer Series, a day of fun-filled classes in The Turnbull’s beautiful space.  Tickets can be bought for each individual class separately or bundled together for a full day’s experience. Purchase tickets to every event here.

About the teacher:

Kaleena Goldsworthy was born in Maryland and raised in upstate New York. After suffering through many years of excessive snow, she felt it was time to move to a warmer climate, and found herself in Chattanooga only six months after visiting it for the first time. The fine folks at Flying Squirrel gave Kaleena her first job behind a bar and she instantly fell in love with the hospitality industry, the history of craft cocktails, and the food and beverage industry. To further her education and understanding of spirits and their origins, she started studying herbalism and began volunteering at Crabtree Farms. This knowledge, combined with her love of the cocktail industry, led her to start creating bitters at home. This passion grew, eventually leading to the creation of her business, The Bitter Bottle. The Bitter Bottle is focused on using organic and locally sourced ingredients to create bitters and tinctures. She also continues to focus on education, creating drinks, and sharing all of this with the community.

Beginner Handlettering

Love all the cute lettering pieces you see in home décor elements? Want to learn to make your own pieces to decorate your house, give as gifts, or gussy up your snail mail?

Also referred to as “modern calligraphy,” hand-lettering or brush lettering is a popular form of writing seen around DIY projects on Pinterest and Instagram. It has a more whimsical, loose feel than standard fountain pen calligraphy and is popularly used for wedding invitations, thank-you cards, place-settings, etc.

Join us for a workshop to learn the basics of hand lettering and more. We will move from manipulating the pens to the basic brush lettering script alphabet. The class will also address letter connections and basic flourishes. Plus, you will learn some tricks of the trade to practice smarter, not harder!

Supplies: All supplies are included. Each participant will receive three pens and tracing paper to keep practicing at home.

Lesley Miller is originally from Raleigh, North Carolina and has gradually been moving west for the past fifteen years. She spent many years teaching elementary school and middle school science in Knoxville.

As a crafty kid and an adult scrapbooker, hand lettering gave her a new way to express her creativity and love of letters! Lesley is so excited to be an editor and contributing artist for Penultimate Magazine. She has been lettering for about two years and teaching lettering for almost one. Lesley promises that you will walk out of class with the tools you need to get started on your own lettering journey! Check out Lesley's work here.
