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.
