EARTH: The Hope Orb
The live premier workshop was filmed on October 24th, 2020. It is now available as a Webinar. You can participate in the workshop from the comfort and safety of you own home and on your own schedule.
What helps ground you?
How do you grow an idea, a hope, a dream from that stability?
Where do you store your seeds of hope?
We start our Elemental Ceramic Workshops with: Earth. To ground us, to start with a seedling found deep within our hearts. We all have seedlings of hope, we have an inner voice that says - I want, I need, I hope… For each of us these seeds are distinctly different. For some of us, it’s a hope for the planet - for others it’s simply to be loved.
We need it - a place to squirrel away small reminders from our inner muse.
We know we need a place to grow these hopes and nurture them - place them in an Orb where they can be safe, wlatched and grow below the earth.
In this class we will build a Hope Orb. Your orb will be made of a glass base and a ceramic lid made by you. This will be a container for all your seedlings to act as a reminder, to be safe from harm and to be nurtured by the earth that sheltlers them.
Katy Atchison, certified Color of Woman International Creativity Teacher, will guide you through a process where we identify what your seedlings are - what do you have hidden in your heart that needs to be stored in a safe place?
Our special guest is Jim Atchison - 45 year expert potter. He will teach you how to build your worry pot through handbuilding techniques which have been handed down through time.
Lastly, we will combine and alchemize our seedlings. Out of that, our hand built vessels will emerge. By working together on these and then firing them at the same time will create a powerful energetic shift for all of us.
In this class you will learn:
• Learn how to ground ourselves during a moment of anxiety.
• Identify your own seedlings that need nurturing & storing in a safe place.
• We will learn about the element of EARTH that your container will be made of.
• The origin of ceramic hand building.
• The chemical process of firing and how that relates to your creation.
• How to use your Hope Orb as a daily reminder that you are nurturing your inner hopes and dreams : honoring where you are at in the process.
