Makers: Workshop Series

This event last occurred on March 7, 2015, 1—3:30 pm.

Join one or all Makers workshops as part of the Walden, revisited exhibition. Designed to support us all in being more self-reliant and living deliberately like Henry David Thoreau, these workshops support the hand-made and foster community building. Registration required.

February 7
Learn how to make your very own place setting out of clay with deCordova’s ceramist in residence, Bruce Barry. Participants will create a full place setting culminating in the creation of a spoon, cup, bowl, and plate. No ceramics experience is necessary.

March 7
Try your hand at creating three types of preserved goods to take and enjoy at home! We will examine traditional New England preservation methods used during Thoreau’s time as well as contemporary fermentation practices.  Sustainable food expert Rosie Branson Gill offers simple techniques to use your new preserving skills in your own kitchen. REGISTER HERE.

Participants are encouraged to lend their makings for display at the exhibition closing celebration on Saturday, April 25.
