Nicole Alcaro a Miami native. She is drawn to create in various forms. She started sewing at 16, learned lamp working at 20, worked as a prop assist, set decorator, prop maker and is a bit of a "Jane of all trades". Nicole became aware about recycling/upcycling plastics and glass. "I’m always looking for ways to reduce, reuse and recycle". She enjoys sharing how to create items from plastic and glass and teaching skills to others. One of her many goals is to have a plastic shredder, injection machine, compression machine and extrusion machine – "all of these would be tools to help break down all types of plastic and use them to make useful objects".

Please bring your open heart and playful, creative spirit.

Origami Workshop

Come learn to fold a figure.

Saturday NoonWestley

Born and raised in the hub of Seattle, Washington, Wesley Geometry has always
been fascinated in the matrix of nature. He innocently started folding paper airplanes at
6 years old, and it wasn’t long before airplanes evolved into dinosaurs. Then dinosaurs
evolved into flowers, which eventually evolved into what the viewer is seeing today.
Once Sacred Geometry came into play in 2011, his childhood hobby quickly turned into
a driving passion for expression, and the name Wesley Geometry was born.
2013 quickly came around and he was first featured in Art Basel at Moksha Art
Gallery (Miami, FL). After an amazing turnout, he followed with doing volunteer work for
The Spine Abifida Foundation in demonstrating origami and the art of paper folding to
kids with disability.
His work also continued through doing live demos nationwide at Zen Awakening
Festival (Orlando, FL), Gratifly Art Fest (South Carolina), Kinnection Campout Art Fest
(South Carolina), and Jade Buddha Art Fest (Miami, FL). He was also featured at Snap!
Gallery in Orlando, FL in 2014 and 2015.
Since his beginnings with paper, his vision has expanded to work with mediums that are
more versatile and useable. The formats in which these mediums are used, expand
onto sculpture, jewelry, interior design, and wearable art (high fashion).
His process has been as such where as any artist, would love to collaborate
more, on any medium one hasn’t played with yet. Performance Art has always been a
vision of his in working with dance in particular, and with theater as a high school love,
he would be more than thrilled to jump into the contemporary performance world. Like
any childhood dream, he loves what he does. The awe and wonderment he brings to
everyone, child and adult alike, is what drives him.

Please bring your folding fingers and a good attitude.

Hey! I'm Alec and I've been spinning Contact Staff 97.3% exclusively for 4 years now. I've taught mostly at Burns and hosted open firejams in Atlanta, including studio lessons for new and aspiring flow artists trying to approach the art in a more structured way and challenge themselves.

Contact Staff, good vibes, always recommend people dress and practice the same way they plan to dress while spinning fire.

Feeling Divine Energy that You Are

Each and every one of us is made up of divine energy. Divine energy is the energy that makes up all life, the earth is made up of divine energy, our bodies, our soul, and when we tune in to this - that we are, we tune into the energy that heals. I am here to help inform others on how to tune into the divine energy that they are; without any effort, simply with the art of allowing.

Scheduled by the Love X TalksLemuria

I am that I am. I choose to be called Lemuria, and I have always had a natural awareness of, what some people call reiki, I see it as divine energy that I actually am. I am able to feel energy with any part of my body, but I use my hands as direct points of giving and receiving energy. I am able to pinpoint origins of pain, clear that point, and pour divine healing energy into it. I have had many different short term teachers in the past, but my greatest teacher is my own intuition and my connection to spirit.

Bring themselves! Where clothes that are comfortable. Just be authentic as you are. 🙂

Giving and Receiving

I am experienced in traveling with almost no money at all times. I have realized and found out that this world exists as a system of giving and receiving; every action we make creates a response no matter what. When we unconditionally and unselfishly give what we have we open ourselves up to receive what we need, when we unconditionally and unselfishly receive from people, the earth, or other forces, we open ourselves up to give more, this cycle is infinite.

Scheduled by the Love X TalksLemuria

I am that I am. I choose the name Lemuria because I remember existing during the time of Lemuria, which was one of the first civilizations on the planet. I choose to hold this name because every time I hear the world it reminds me of living in perfect harmony and purity with the animals, the earth, the plants, one another, and all. I know perfect harmony can exist on this planet at anytime, and it is up to the people to decide to create that into reality. Every action I make I do my best to create this world to be as Lemuria was, only it is bran new. I am only one so I can only do so much, but I know if I play my part and do the best I can it is enough. 🙂
My husband and I travel around the country together and apart. When we, or just me,travel money is always coming and going. I have a experienced multiple times where there has been no money, but a deep knowing of abundance! In this knowing of true abundance that comes from within I am always able to give what I have no matter what. When I choose to give what I have, even if I have nothing at the time, no money, no things, just the clothes on my back and the love emanating from without my heart, I am always provided for...always. What I choose to give is kindness to anyone.

Students may come with an open mind and an open heart. May they be dressed comfortably, and possible a pen and notebook and they enjoy writing information down. Truly may they just come as themselves 🙂
