Adventures in the Arts: Paddling & Pottery

August 2, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - August 4, 2019 @ 5:00 PM

$575.00

North Star Adventures is thrilled to partner with Squidge Liljeblad Davis from Starflower Farm Studio. Squidge is a well-known and respected clay artist  who has maintained a studio, shown her work and taught as a visiting  artist throughout New England since 1972.  In her teaching, she combines  the principles of TaiChi/QiGong (which she has also studied and taught  for decades)  with the direct experience of place, spirit and art.

In this wilderness experience, we will learn the 5 element qiGong and the basic skills of handbuilding  – combining both into a sacred  ritual object which we may be able to fire the second night. We will also form our rattles in self-hardening clay so everyone will have a  singing form to return home with; bringing spirit into matter and wildness into daily life.

We will immerse ourselves in the natural world by paddling in a remote enviroment. The quiet beauty of the water, wind and sunlight will fill our spirts and feed our souls as we prepare for an immersive handbuilding experience.
