Taller de Terreno welcomes Tara Wilson for a unique workshop that addresses  movement + balance as they relate to all aspects of the ceramic process + studio practice, from making to firing and everything in between. Students will learn various throwing + hand building techniques to bring movement and gesture into the work. A variety of wood firing topics will be discussed, from surface treatments + stacking methods, to firing + cooling strategies. Each weekday afternoon the group will enjoy a one-hour activity, alternating between yoga led by a certified instructor, desert hikes + beach or pool breaks. Participants will discuss the relationships between bodies + pots, studio practice + moving meditation, and how to best balance a strenuous physical career with daily exercises.
