A SPOONFUL OF NOURISHMENT

Ceramic Spoon Making Workshop

Summer of 2020, A Chinese Diaspora Sharing Circle Event (Edmonton, AB)

 

Is it a project? Probably not. Was it a fun time? Yes!I spend the afternoon with some lovely folks learning and sharing stories about traditional Chinese ceramics spoons. Then I led the group in making their own spoons from clay.
