  • $35 class, $5 materials

Investigate the many forms that CLAY can take, exploring its plasticity and texture as well as its ancestral presence across cultures. Over the course of four weeks, students will be invited to create symbolic clay sculptures, like AMULETS, to offer to the future. Every class will include breathing/warm up exercises and object-making exercises inspired in simple hand-building techniques. By the end of the cycle, the group will decide on one piece to offer back to the land (to be placed in the surroundings of GARNER Arts Center), as a gift for everything that we learned together. Masks required. Social distancing observed.
