Ceramicist and CalBG grad student Peri Lee Pipkin will facilitate clay sculpture workshops for the (Re)place exhibition. The workshop will guide participants in making simple sculptural clay forms. Your creation will be added to the large-scale exhibition here at the California Botanic Garden. Participants of this workshop will also take home materials to create their own works of art for their garden. The clay provided will be infused with seeds from native plant species.
During the seven-month tenure of the show, the elements will degrade the unfired sculptures back into soil and seeds will sprout and blossom, replacing the sculptures that once stood in their place. Participants are encouraged to return to the Garden to witness the transformation of their sculptural works into native flora.
Adults and children are welcome to this workshop. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
