Holding Us Together

During this time of physical distancing, what has helped you hold it all together?

In this all-ages workshop, artists Parker Dirks and Juliet Palmer invite you to share your hopes and memories, and the creatures, people and places that ground you.

How does it work?

The kit has everything you need to sculpt and decorate your own vessel using clay slip and sgraffito technique. The videos above will guide you through the creative steps. In your kit you’ll also find an invitation to a self-guided walk to a place that grounds you. Your reflections will become part of a short audio collage.

  • Drop off your completed vessel to the Brick Works — Saturday December 19, 9am-1pm
  • Art City participants, please drop your kits back to the office by noon on Wednesday December 16.
  • After firing in the Brick Works kiln, vessels will be ready for pick-up in January, once Covid restrictions have eased (date and location TBA).

This workshop is part of Urbanvessel’s Homing Project and is supported by the Toronto Arts Council’s Animating Historic Places program and the Ontario Arts Council.
