Muddy Mountain Workshop
10th -17th June 2018

An introductory workshop for those looking to get acquainted with the craft of pottery ( 30 hours) accompanied with yoga (12 hours) and meditation (6 hours).  

Each morning began early with an intensive practice of Upa Yoga, a simple yet powerful system of exercise that activates your joints, muscles and energy system. Each day was brought to a close by indulging in Chit Shakti guided meditations that help to manifest love, health, peace, and success.

The pottery sessions were focused on providing an immersive experience of material and process. The participants experimented with a hand-building project, building vessels and working on ideas of decoration. Alternatively, the basics of wheel-throwing pottery were introduced along with drawing sessions to encourage design thinking. To further engage in the possibilities of clay as a material, there were outdoor sessions wherein the participants meditated on and collected naturally found patterns and textures in the coniferous forests of the village.

Living and eating from the organic and bio-diverse farm, the meals were planned and provided with an aim to educate the participants about the connections and implications of food on the environment, body, and mind.

The workshop was conducted in collaboration with Studio SQ1, New Delhi and WhiteHill Studio.
