Artful Photography Offsite Hike

Join Mark Gerow as he leads you on a picturesque walk through pristine Berkshire forests. Cultivate mindfulness while you develop an eye for creative photography shots you can add to your memories in photo albums and social media posts. 110 MIN | $115

Glazing

This final step in creating a pottery piece offers a unique, meditative experience through craft. The chemistry that takes place within the extreme heat of the kiln often produces unexpected results. Artists spend years developing glazing techniques to achieve their vision, while also acknowledging that some elements may always lie outside their control. Learn practiced glazing methods and join in glazing an already in-progress work of pottery, creating a special collaborative piece for you to keep. 50 MIN | $325

KINTSUGI: The Beauty of Imperfection

Kintsugi, meaning to join with gold, is a traditional Japanese art that reassembles the shattered pieces of a broken piece of pottery with richly colored gold lacquer. Create your own Kintsugi vessel in this workshop that examines our relationship with fracture and imperfections, both real and symbolic, with compassionate reflection and a renewed perspective on what it means to be whole. Instead of disguising, discarding, or replacing the cracks in art or in life, we can render the traces of imperfection with beauty and strength. 50 MIN | $325
