Reflections on Courage through Clay

Discover the profound history of ceramics as a means of healing and self-expression in contemporary art, while also learning about artist Hana El-Sagini’s practice and her exhibition ‘Counting Fingers’, a major new body of work featuring over 200 ceramic pieces.

 

In this workshop, we dive into our personal  adversities through a writing exercise while learning  about the clay as a medium.  Later, we will draw sketches that represent the emotions explored in the writing exercise, recreating them as a way to channel our inner struggles.

 

Open to ages 18 years and above.
