Thursday, June 3rd. 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
Have you been seeing the clay birds out and about in the Gunnison Valley? Maybe you’ve stumbled upon one or heard about their travels throughout the community. Now you can join the flock and create your own! The Hopeful Birds Project was created last spring to bring people together during these strange times of COVID-19. The way it works: A flock of ceramic birds is created and dispersed throughout the community. Once found, community members are encouraged to interact with the bird by creatively building them a nest, finding another bird friend, making them a scarf, etc… These tasks are accomplished in one’s own creative way, documented with a photograph, and then put back into the ‘wild’ for the next person to stumble upon. Students in this class will be creating two ceramic birds- one to keep and one to share with the community.
