1 day workshop
9:30 am to 4:00 pm

Sunday September 8, 2019 taking registrations now
$80.00 includes all materials and firing.

“The day will begin with a nice cup of hot yoga tea followed by a Yoga
meditation to relax your mind/body to inspire your creative juices to
flow into a clay project of creating your own personal “Green Man”*, a
terracotta clay leafy man. You will learn Techniques of using
templates from man made to natural objects and also how to create a
sculptural face. There will be a Mindful nature walk, to collect your
leaves for your Green Man.
Please wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather of the day to be outside. The workshop will take place on my studio balcony. For the clay bring an apron.

We’ll break for lunch which I will create vegetarian soup to share.
You’re welcome to bring other foods to share if you like. The work
will take about 1 week to dry before firing in an electric kiln.
You’ll be contacted when they are ready for pick up. Space is limited
to 8.

*”The Green Man is any kind of carving which shows a head or face
surrounded by leaves. It is believed to have been intended as a symbol of growth and rebirth, the eternal seasonal cycle of the coming of spring and the life of Man. Its origins can be dated back as far as
420 BCE. In the 19th century it again became popular with architects
during the Gothic revival and the Arts and Crafts era, when it appeared as a decorative motif in and on many buildings, both
religious and secular.”
