Give yourself the gift of presence this year 9 day workshop where we will merge the love of clay and yoga into one stimulating and inspiring experience. Every clay worker experiences body pain from their labor of love and that's why Brenda will incorporate light yoga and stretching into this workshop. And what better place to do it, than in Tuscany!

Join Brenda in this opening up and exploring of your body, mind & creative spirit. She will facilitate the Art of Yoga, while exploring Meditations in Clay. This is a hand-building and throwing workshop. Brenda will provide hand-building ideas or help develop an idea you bring. All the work will be fired in a paper-clay saggar pod to reveal a joyous gift. Participants can come to the workshop with a project of their own, or join Brenda in creating Tibetan Prayer Wheels, Hand Carved Oms or simply sculptural expressions.

Throughout the course of the program, students will tap into the beauty of the surrounding Tuscan landscape while nourishing
