Holding Us Together: with ceramicist Parker Dirks & sound artist Juliet Palmer

About this Event

Create your own clay vessel and add your voice to an online sound collage.

During this time of physical distancing, what has helped you hold it all together?

In this all-ages workshop, artists Parker Dirks and Juliet Palmer invite you to share your hopes and memories, and the creatures, people and places that ground you.

How does it work?

When you pick up your kit you’ll be invited to take a self-guided walk around the Brick Works. Your reflections will become part of a short audio collage. Once you’re at home, the kit has everything you need to sculpt and decorate your own vessel using clay slip and sgraffito technique.

  • Get started with our online video tutorial
  • Drop in to an online open studio session — December 2 / 5
  • Drop off your completed vessel — Saturday December 19
  • After firing in the Brick Works kiln, you'll pick it up in early January (dates TBC)
  • Pre-registration required. Limit of 20 participants.

This workshop is part of Urbanvessel's Homing Project and is supported by the Toronto Arts Council's Animating Historic Places program and the Ontario Arts Council.
