'...Laura's collage workshop was one of the most beneficial activities I've done in the past few years. Who knew that sitting around cutting things up and pasting them to a sheet of paper could be so enlightening?... The reminder to embrace our creative being and to recognize its value and centrality in our human existence was so perfect for this particular moment in history, and of course is always relevant.'
