This hands-on class was held twice at the Bioneers Detroit Conference Oct 14 & 15, 2022.
Youth from The Academy of the Americas in Detroit came to sculpt with earth! First they viewed a slide show of ways that earth can be sculpted for different uses: Earth Oven, Benches, Niches, Sculptures & more! Then Deanne mixed a batch “by foot” ~ which delighted the students more than I ever imagined! Students got a “cob” of earth and a board, and started their own individual sculptures! Sweet.
There was high engagement and enthusiasm. Well worth the effort of “schlepping” earth and supplies from Strawbale Studio! It was a real delight for me, and a joy for them as well! Yay!
