Join artist and naturalist Barbara Tagami for two days and an evening of strolling, gathering, fishing, studying, cooking and breaking bread together at Briggs Woods Park. We will cook what we find and catch, while learning about the medicinal qualities and lore surrounding each item. Barbara will share her recipes and information while students will work together to make a booklet for each to take home!

Barbara would like to invite everyone to stay or return Saturday evening to commune, break bread and cook over an open fire. Please bring something to contribute and guests are welcome. All participants are welcome to share the cabin Friday and/or Saturday nights if they would like to sleep on site for $40 per night. Call 515-835-0497 for more info.

Join in the fun! Create beautiful pottery using various forming techniques and experimenting with natural textures and patterns. You will build quickly so we can fire the pots and use them for our alternative firing methods, which are the focus of the class. Use the wheel, or slab roller or extruder to handbuild works, and you are also welcome to bring your own bisque pottery to fire in the Raku kiln. We will experiment with Raku glazes and firing, using both paper and sawdust. We will also try our hand at horsehair, and alcohol reduction methods.

Billy Cho just completed his MFA at the University of Iowa and will share his expressive glaze techniques in this workshop. The experience will be great for both beginners and experienced potters. High School students are welcome.
