Mindfulness and Pottery with guest teacher Jeannie Cziesla

  • registering Now for Winter session

Combining the therapeutic nature of clay with mindfulness practices, students will create intentional pieces of pottery that reinforce and activate awareness of core values, hopes and dreams. Jeannie and Faye work together to design a curriculum and projects that integrate the art with mindfulness practices and concepts. These beautiful pieces can be displayed in your home where the intention is conveyed each time your art catches your eye.

At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and integrity.

On Going Adult Pottery classes

The studio is small and cozy, there are 6 potters wheels, a large slab roller and an area for hand building. Tools, buckets, and huge array of decorating supples are all provided as well as a large selection of glazes and underglazes.

Classes max out with 8 students, occasionally 9. Due to the nature of the medium it sometimes takes years to master. Consequently students do not give up their spot often.

Working with clay can be a magical therapeutic process.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
