Our afternoon will begin with a 30 minute coffee time at the coffee shop downstairs of the studio. Tradition Coffee Roasters will stay open 30 minutes longer for just us to order a coffee and do our welcome before we begin our clay time! We can not eat while making the pottery as we do not want to ingest any clay particles. Please plan to eat before or after our meet this month as we will only provide a coffee break! Mahalo!
A little bit about our host Jaimie + Icky Love Pottery
Jaimie Nagle is a ceramic artist and writer. She began her journey with clay at the University of Hawaii while studying for her doctorate in Creative Writing. Since then, she fell in love with clay---it's texture and malleability, it's gift of failure and success--the perfect metaphor for the ebb and flow of human experience. After having her first child, she decided to further her study and journey with clay and developed Icky Love Pottery, a small batch ceramic studio, originally just in Ka'aawa. Now she makes her own work and offers workshops in both Ka'aawa & Kailua. Seeing the way people form a relationship with making something from the earth brings her great joy.
In this 2.5 hr workshop. You will create a unique bud vase to hold flower. Jaimie shares that to her, it "represents holding the memory of a loved one. Everytime you look at the flower it's a reminder of a life well lived". This workshop will be limited to 15 participants.
