The seasons exert powerful influences on our spiritual lives. Spring is a season of rebirth, renewal, and liberation in many ancient and modern traditions, ranging from Passover to Easter-Pentecost, Earth Day, Beltane, and May Day. The rhythms of work, worship, and study in community at Pendle Hill magnify the power of each season.

Shaping clay is a process that often has results much greater than the production of a pot. In this course we will dig into the earth of Pendle Hill to find clay and seek inspiration both within our hearts and through engagement with each other. Encouraging creativity to abound, we will make lots of pots, each one unique, while discovering how shaping clay can help shape each of us.
