Heart & Mind - MINDFULNESS IS HEARTFULNESS WORKSHOP

Join SamMantra for an introductory evening of Mindfulness.

As humans we learn to train our physical bodies to be healthy and fit but do we care for our minds and hearts?  

Mindfulness is often described as 'being in the present moment’ but what does that mean and how can it help us deal with the day to day stresses of modern living?

In this creative taster session experience some simple meditation and breath work practices to engage your senses and open your hearts and minds to bring calm, peace and gratitude for the life you have.

Mindful Pinch Pots Workshop

The simple process of making a pinch pot is a relaxing and meditative act,  where the motion of forming and pinching the clay can have a therapeutic effect on both body and mind...

In this workshop you will learn how to form a pot using the simplest of ceramic techniques, ‘pinching’. This technique is ideal for anyone who is new to clay and would like a gentle introduction to the medium.

Using only a ball of clay and your hands, you will be shown the process of forming a simple pot. Create one or several pots during the workshop, depending on your speed and the size of the pot.  We'll then decorate your pots with ‘slip' (coloured liquid clay) or underglaze paints. Carving tools will be available to carve patterns into the clay.

All materials are included in the price of the workshop, including the glazing and firing of the work. You will be able to collect your finished work at a later date and you will be informed when it is ready for collection from Surrey Art School.
