FORM & FLOW RETREAT (online clay and yoga retreat)

June 26-29th, 2020

Form + Flow an immersive online 4-day retreat through handbuilding and movement.

For the clay classes we'll be working in an iron rich red clay body and explore handbuilding techniques including pinching, coiling, and carving reductive processes to create functional and sculptural forms. I'll also demonstrate textural elements and surface design along with my signature sgraffito process.

I’ve partnered with two incredible women Erin Michaela  and Kendra Varoskovic to create a virtual travel adventure to ignite our creativity, activate our bodies, and discover inspiration and connection with others through art and movement. Something I know craving deeply especially in these strange days of 2020.

Kendra's yoga classes combine Strala practices, the movement and healing wisdom of tai chi with form vocabularies of yoga, tai chi, qigong, and Traditional Chinese and Japanese Medicine, to help release stress, move more easily through challenges, and find your natural flow to release, replenish our bodies and live radiantly.

The 4day retreat will be a mix of live video and pre-recorded sessions of ceramics and yoga, along private group chats. It begins with a welcome box with all the clay and pottery tools you'll need, special products from some of our favorite independent brands, recipes for the weekend and your workbook and sketchbook for the class.

We’re also giving away 3 spots in this experience for frontline workers!  Details on @formandflowretreat on how to nominate friends and family who are our making the world go round, keeping us safe and healthy.
