Event Description

Join local artist and educator Heidi Woo for a mindfulness and pottery workshop in honor of AAPI Heritage Month.

Experience meditation and create your own kurinuki yunomi cup from air-dry clay.

Learn about the kurinuki technique, a traditional Japanese ceramic method that involves carving a single piece of clay.

Note that the air-dry clay used will render the final product decorative, not suitable for food or water.

Enjoy a serene setting perfect for breathing, meditation, and artistic expression.
