Participatory Art Workshop with Sonja Hinrichsen – Saturday, May 21st

Participants of all ages are invited to join local artist Sonja Hinrichsen for an interactive workshop to create a piece of public art to be displayed at Hayes Valley Art Works.

“I hope that my works help arouse appreciation and consciousness for the natural world. Modern society is becoming increasingly disconnected from nature. I believe, however, that for a successful future of humanity it is essential that we re-gain a greater awareness of our planet’s life and tune ourselves in with the natural world, understand it better and take better stewardship thereof.”

Learn more about Sonja’s work at www.sonja-hinrichsen.com

Space will be limited, and registration will open on Thursday, May 12th.  More details will be available at that time – stay tuned!

We are presenting a special all day wheel throwing demo and real time ceramic sale in support of upcoming arts programing at Hayes Valley Art Works.

Come watch professional potters make beautiful functional items on the wheel, and if you like anything you can purchase it and pick it up once it’s fired. You are also invited to get your hands dirty in our drop-in hand building studio, and for a donation can get your work fired too. Bring the kids, bring the crafty, and bring a picnic to hang out awhile.
