Mindful Media’s 2019 Program Offerings:


Jug Band Music       $195 plus travel                                                                                                                                                                                      It’s musical, it’s historical, and it’s playful! Come join a jug band like those created in the 1920’s. During an economic recession, out-of-work musicians made music with household items such as spoons, jugs, washboards and washtubs. All participants will be given an instrument to accompany Alan Candee’s guitar and banjo. Attendees will take a comb kazoo with them and be inspired to create their own jug band at home.


Rock Hunting and Making a Gemstone Wire-Wrap Necklace    $195 plus travel
“Rock-hunting? Doesn’t sound very sporting. Do they move?” Join long-time rockhound, Alan Candee, to learn about the rock-collecting hobby and make a gemstone wire-wrap jewelry necklace. Expect this program to last 60-90 minutes.  Mindful Media’s most requested summer program in 2016 and 2017.  (Limit: 20 participants)

“Alan and Nancy’s program on jewelry making with natural stones was a hit.  Not only did Nancy present how to make beautiful wire-wrapped jewelry, Alan gave a wonderful presentation about Geology and brought in many examples to tempt anyone to go outside and explore.  Our patrons loved it!”                                                -Berta Boegel, Branch Supervisor, Carmichael Library
