Mindfulness and Pottery (a special 8 week workshop)
Meets 8 Wednesday Evenings 7:00-9:00 Now enrolling
February 7th-April 8th (No Class Feb 21st Mid Winter break)
In this thoughtful class students will learn basic pottery technique while exploring the nature of Mindfulness. Each week there will be an idea introduced in how we might live our day to day lives in a more mindful way. The pottery project will be created to echo this idea. The end product will be a lovely piece of art that can be displayed in your home as a constant reminder to practice mindfulness in our every day lives.
Within the 8 week session there should be plenty of time to finish 5 to 8 projects including glazing. Step by step instructions will be demonstrated so this class is perfect for any experience level. Even a complete beginner should do well as they experience the natural therapeutic quality of clay.
Email Faye at [email protected] to register for one of the 8 spots
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.
