July 9 - 13 & July 23 - 27
Pottery, Stone, Fire, and Food
Created and led by Allie Showalter and Tyler Lavenburg
Since the domestication of fire, humans have gathered around the glow of flame to prepare nourishing meals, hone their tools, and share their stories. Fire was and is, truly at the heart of the village. Even today, whether it is on our propane stove or flicking the switch to our baseboard heater, we are engaging with fire.
Join us around the central fire as we honor this ancient tradition by engaging with the fire directly—using it as a tool to create beautiful crafts, cook tasty foods, and revel in the simple joys of singing and telling stories around the fire.
We will create a functional and beautiful hearth, playing and working as a village. Children will practice the art of fire building and tending, learning to find the necessary materials to make fire anywhere in the forest. This class is a true celebration of the innumerable ways that fire weaves itself in and out of our lives.
