Welcome to the Healing Component of Clay, a pop-up class designed to utilize the tactile quality of ceramics to foster emotional and mental healing for women of color. The clay workshop is a 3-part series, occurring on consecutive weekends in April and May of 2018. Each of the three workshops builds upon the previous one, therefor it is advised that you attend all three workshops.
In this workshop you will explore and engage with the tactile quality of clay, create at least one decorated pinch pot to take home by the end of the workshops, and develop your understanding of the healing experience of clay. No experience necessary.
Each workshop is 2 hours. There are two time slots offered on each day, one in the morning (11am- 1pm) and one in the evening (6pm-8pm). You may mix and match the morning and evening times if you'd like.
The workshops will take place on:Sunday April 29 / Workshop 1Sunday May 6 / Workshop 2Sunday May 13 / Workshop 3: "Bring Yo' Mama" special Mothers Day editionSunday May 20 / Culminating celebration & pick up final work, 6-9 pm
We will have a final culminating event on May 20, 6-9pm where you can pick up your final piece after it has been glaze fired. Drinks and appetizers served. Please invite your friends and family : )
The "Bring Yo' Mama" workshop on Mother's Day (May 13) is open for participants to bring their mothers to participate. The work that mothers create will also be ready to pick up on Sunday May 20.
While this workshop is intended for women of color, no one will be turned away.
