SoulCollage® – Tapping Your Wisdom and Intuition

facilitated by Cindi Spillman of ArtLab

Sunday, May 22 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

in-person & online participation available


SoulCollage® is a creative way to tap into your own wisdom and intuition. As you create a personal deck of cards (using images you cut from magazines, a glue stick, and your imagination), you can take a break from our increasingly electronics driven world, reconnect with your heart and soul, and maybe even even discover some hidden insights.

This introductory workshop will take place both in-person at Elk Haven Wellness Center in Brevard, NC and online via Zoom on Sunday, May 22 from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Eastern. Tickets are $50 per person, with an early registration option of $45 if you register by May 1. Cindi Spillman of ArtLab, a certified SoulCollage® Facilitator, will lead this workshop. Class size limited to 25 attendees, with 15 in-person and 10 online. Please email our Registrar Flora Brooke with any questions about this event.

Registrations are now being accepted HERE via Eventbrite.

Don’t think of yourself as creative? Don’t like scissors or glue? You’ll be surprised by what you’re able to create through this intuitive process, and what you’ll learn along the way. (Including how much fun you can have even by tearing and taping!)

SoulCollage® is a great way to give yourself the gift of self-care and relaxation, and have fun at the same time! Visit for more information.


After careers in interior design, arts management, and many years of urban living, Cindi Spillman has come home to Brevard—her roots in Appalachia—to open ArtLab in the midst of a community rich in creative expression. Cindi brings together a desire to return to Western North Carolina, her experience as an artist, her enthusiasm for collaboration, and a fierce determination to remove the phrase “I’m not creative” from the English language.

Photography has long been Cindi’s primary art form. As a young girl, she received a toy camera and started snapping. It didn’t take long before she graduated to the real thing, thanks to a gift from her dad (who also turned her on to bluegrass). It became clear her love of photography was matched only by her desire to travel.

Shortly after graduating from college, she lived in Kenya as part of World Teach and subsequently travelled to several countries in East and Southern Africa. Her other travels took her and her camera to Australia, Cuba, Hong Kong, Mexico, India, Israel, Egypt, Japan, New Zealand, Thailand, a handful of countries in western Europe, and much of the United States.

With each stamp in her passport, Cindi’s interest in the traditions, cuisines, languages, music, and artwork of the world grew. And yet, she experienced a more profound realization:

“No matter how different we are, or what language we speak, we have so much in common. We raise children. We love our pets. We cook. We do laundry. We get a haircut.”

It is this commonality Cindi seeks to capture through the lens, transmit in her classes, and practice in conversation with other artists and art lovers—and among common experiences, overriding the voices and challenges that block creativity.

No matter what the artful case may be, Cindi has come to ditch all rules except these:
1. Tell your inner critic to take a hike.
2. Try it—even if someone once told you that you weren’t good at it.
3. Have fun!


$50 per person, $45 if registered by May 1.
