A celebration of self-caring and gratitude. We will be working with air dry clay to create a beautiful nature-inspired centerpiece platter by pressing foraged items into the clay to leave a unique print. We will be shaping the clay with our hands to create a unique design.
The workshop will begin with a silent meditative walk from the museum to Heisler Park and back. Gather anything that catches your eye – anything with texture that we can use in the workshop. After a 15-minute silent walk where we gather our materials – we will head back to the museum to do a quick grounding exercise and breathing before we settle in. Jo will facilitate the remaining time to create, play, to be present and grateful for the abundance around us.
