Saturday, June 9th 3-5pm
Join us on Saturday, June 9 for a walk into a precarious wetland on the brink of development for an intimate engagement with soil and clay. This two-part workshop will include an examination of soil profiles for evidence of hydric characteristics (a prerequisite for the state’s preservation of wetland sites). The soil profiles will yield information that will be used to advocate for the protection of this lush urban wild space. We will also sculpt the clay bodies into aesthetic and utilitarian objects to be fired at a second workshop to be held at TYMPANUM in Warren, MI on June 30, 2018. We will meet at Steinhauser Park and then walk to the site. See ya soon!
