♦Hand Build Your Own Healing Altar Workshop with Artist Sarah Vandersall

Build an altar in celebration of you on Sunday, Dec. 8, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.. Your altars may represent your ideas about self, contain something that you want to release, or an aspect that you want to bring into light and into the world about yourself. We will explore this premise as something that you want to use to produce growth in yourself, and see that in a vision of something that you create.  Other aspects that might be incorporated into the works are vessels, statues, and colors that you want to see. The altars can take many forms, including a plate, a shelf, or a wall hanging.  The possibilities here are endless. Your instructor will guide you through this process as I invite you to create a space for yourself that speaks to you, your experience, and your joy!  All levels are welcome, but some experience in hand building or throwing is preferred.

Price ($125/members, $150/non-members) includes instruction, clay, glaze, and firings.  Non-members: please pay $125 to register, and balance of $25 in cash/check on the day of the workshop.
