Do you find yourself picking up leaves and pods as you hike or walk your neighborhood streets? When you sit down to make something, are images of the natural world the first thing that come to mind? Join Joy Bridy, ceramist and perambulator, for 6 weeks of exploration of the natural world and how it relates to making, art and craft.

We will be exploring the outside world through walking and looking, engaging all of our senses, paying attention to what we pay attention to, and creating a tool box of components and ideas relevant to any studio practice or medium. From sketching to assemblage, we'll be exercising our creative minds to think in new ways, bringing fresh energy and inspiration to our personal making processes.

As a ceramist, Joy will be integrating clay into class times, both as a medium to record ideas, and as a process for working through ideas, as well as other mediums. Bring your open mind, your favorite sketching tools, a blank-paged book, and good shoes.

Perfect for beginners as well as experienced, all levels are welcome.
