From ancient weathered rocks and incredible natural processes, clay is formed! Clay has been in such a diversity of relationships with people around the world. From medicine, to crafts like endless forms of vessels, to building. Clay carries stories of the land and ecosystems it comes from, as well as stories of the cultures and techniques of those that made them. Join us for a weekend of transforming wild clay into functional art. We will go through the steps of identification, processing, hand-building, and transformation in a pit fire.
The camping conditions will be rustic! We will be cooking over a fire and we will be using a composting toilet. Bring your own camping materials, food and water. We will be parking some 250m from where we will be camping, so be prepared to hike in your gear.
