Every month a new 2 part ceramic class for ages 8-12! (some sessions require two sessions) Member $15, Non-Member $20.  Pre-registration required. From garden friends to monsters, from faces to custom ornaments, come down to the ceramic studio to explore and play with clay. In each first session, we will build and create using earthenware clay. The following week, kids return to the studio to finish their pieces by glazing (painting) them. We will reach out when the pieces have gone through their final firing in the kiln and ready for pickup.  Class size limit 10 per class.

Music & Meditation

What's a sound bath?? A sound bath is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound waves. Sound waves at different frequencies are used to realign the cells in your body to their natural and optimal vibrational state. 

What do I bring? To prepare, bring everything you need to stay warm and comfy - yoga mat, blankets, pillows. If you prefer to sit, you are welcome to do so. Typically, to fully enjoy a sound bath, one will close their eyes, absorbing the experience auditorily and physically.
