Pottery Make & Take: Dance of Life

« All Events

  • This event has passed.

Connect with clay—and your creativity

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to unleash your artistic energy on clay. Join Dance of Life for a fun hands-on pottery workshop that explores a technique that dates back thousands of years. You’ll learn how to use rolls of self-hardening clay to design and create a simple coil pot that’s beautiful—for your home or for a friend’s.

Karen Sensenig, of Dance of Life, has taught in the United States, Sudan and Swaziland. She took her first pottery class in 2015 and was captivated. Today she makes oil lamps and waterfalls of clay, which can provide a focal point for a moment of quiet in a busy day. She often combines clay work with soul work and spiritual direction.

$20 per person includes instruction and all materials for one coil pot
