#var:page_name# cover

Clay play provides a new, rich language to give voice to your inner self through sculptural form, allowing you to sink into a process of self-discovery and well-being. The tactile experience of clay can be meditative in nature and invite a deep sense of relaxation, allowing you to leave your everyday thoughts and worries behind and immerse yourself in the experience. Through hands-on clay play we will learn to speak into form to explore aspects of authentic self-care that sometimes elude us, and discover the path to limiting stress and bringing our bodies, minds, and spirits into balance. No previous experience with clay is necessary.
