Nourish to Bloom: A Guided Journaling & Hand-building Workshop
Join ARTime BARRO and Nicole Smolinski for an experiential ceramics workshop combining inner reflective exercises and conscious conversation with clay work to help you explore the symbolism of 'spring' in your life & how to nourish the goals & dreams you've planted for 2023.
For plants, the spring season represents a time to plant new seeds and nurture the newer opportunities that were building up foundation in the winter. Nicole Smolinski, mental health professional & author of Finding My Way Back: Poems on Coming Alive, Healing & Self-Discovery, believes we can learn from the earth's cycles and that this can symbolically be true for us, too. This session will incorporate hand-building, where you'll be taught how to create a watering can from clay, with open-ended questions to provoke more profound thoughts surrounding spring's teachings.
Through both easy-to-follow journal prompts and a guided group conversation, we'll get to explore the goals & dreams you have in mind for this year and how, much like water to both plant and clay, we can practice ways to nourish those goals & dreams in the ways we care for ourselves.
This session is open to anyone wanting to feel more connected to themselves and who wants to practice caring for mind and body together. As another symbolic touch to the session, and a value for earth-conscious practices, the journal questions you're provided with are printed on seed paper so that you can keep your notes to reflect on later or plant them and watch them grow. Better yet - you can water them with the watering can we created together in class!
