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.

Stand Next To Your Fire

An open mic event with fire that dances to your music! We will provide a guitar, a microphone, and inputs for your own instrument. Your sound will be piped through our speaker that is connected to a Ruben's Tube, which is a propane-filed tube with a series of small flames. As you sing/play, the flames will dance to your sounds. If you hit the right frequency, you may even see EQ curves being represented with the flames. Yay cymatics!

Come bring your songs and musical instruments. Instruments with output jacks will stimulate the fire better than those without, but don't let that stop you from singing your heart out!

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.

I carry insurance and often moonlight as a paid performer in the ATL, where I specialize in a smooth, controlled, liquid flow style that grabs the crowd.

Bring your stick and get you some!! See you in Miami.

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

LOVE THY OHM

I want to teach a 75 min Vinyasa class with some Yin at the end. In my yoga flow, we will connect to the divine through our hearts and allow our physical practice to awaken and transfer energy throughout the body.

Preferably saturday morning around 10 to 12. or anytime that works.Andre

I am originally from Brazil. I have been teaching yoga for little over a year now and I would never imagine It would be something I make a career of. Teaching yoga aligns with my goal in life to spread love and be love. After some time teaching I came to the realization I am here to help other heals and connect to the divine within.

Here is a link to my yoga FB page & IG:
