*SOLD OUT* Local Learning: The Calm of Kurinuki - Carving Clay from the Inside Out

Get your hands in clay and calm your mind and body, as you learn to sculpt a cup from the inside out, using a traditional Japanese technique, kurinuki (translation: to carve out) with Cara Rosaen. In a frenetic time, our being cries out for us to ground and play with presence. Kurinuki is a slow and deliberate process that calls on our imagination and sensitive touch. Beyond a technique, it's a salve for the soul.

About Cara Rosaen: There is nothing more grounding to me than kids and mud, so I try to spend most of my time with one of them. I live with my two sons and husband in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My life has guided me through many incarnations, as an entrepreneur (, a jewelry artist (Sweet Plum Vintage), a graduate student in Marital and Family Therapy, and now mother and studio potter at Yourist Studio Gallery in Ann Arbor. When I have my hands in clay, I have to be in the moment. It's a simple, beautiful practice I feel so lucky to do. If there is one thing to know about me, it's that I'm a sensitive soul. If I care for and honor this, it becomes a strength. Now, it says; "ground yourself, trust, stop paddling up the river, relax, and play". I try to head it's call. You can find my work on my website:
