About the event

"A place for everything, and everything in its place."

Join us this month for an exploration into the relaxing, creative practice of "knolling."

First used in the late 1980's as a term to describe placing objects at 90° angles to one another, knolling has become a trend and term meaning to arrange objects in an aesthetically pleasing way. These objects may be linked by color, shape, size, purpose, etc. and usually are photographed from directly overhead.

This practice is meditative in essence, arranging and rearranging until the composition feels "complete". Come listen to soothing music and create order out of chaos with us!

We will complete three separate knolling sessions to be photographed at the end of each round. This way, three completely unique compositions can be made by each person. Begin with the items you brought, then trade out with another person's items, or simply rearrange your own objects in various ways. Or add your items to a communal pile, and grab new items that speak to you! The goal is relaxation and play, and there is no wrong way to knoll!

We hope to see you Thursday the 11th!

Supplies needed:

Please bring (at minimum) 20 small objects, (palm sized or smaller), associated to one another or not.

Examples: leaves, shells, stones, flowers, small food items, children's toys, keys, small office or art supplies, screws/nuts/bolts, coins, jewelry, items in your pocket or purse, anything goes!

**Please don't bring anything that you either cannot recognize to reclaim at the end of the evening or would be sorry to mix up with someone else's items. (No wedding rings or family heirlooms for example).

See the following article for a fuller description of the practice, and/or check out #knolling on Instagram for ideas and inspiration! https://medium.com/@Lyst/your-favorite-insta-aesthetic-has-an-unexpected-history-a929e078d4ea
