Join us in the desert north of Joshua Tree for a weekend of creativity and connection inspired by Larry Smith's 6-word memoir project and the found object sculpture of Noah Purifoy. Throughout this immersive weekend artist, educator, and designer Nicola Vruwink will share her knowledge of hand-building, craft, and design as you create your own micro-narratives to turn into multi-media sculpture and assemblage with a host of materials and techniques. Emphasis will be on play and investigation as we experiment in writing and process, and visit places of inspiration like Noah Purifoy’s Outdoor Desert Art Museum and Sky Village Swap Meet. Singer/Songwriter Wildlife Freeway will also perform and share insights into her creative practice. Space is limited. Overnight lodging is available!
