Laurie Zuckerman presents a weekend Memory Jug workshop at the Artists' Nook on November 21-22, 2009. Join me for this small intimate workshop limited to the first eight people who register. You don't need to know anything about making memory jugs. I will teach you about techniques and the mysterious sensibilities of this historic American folk art tradition, and get you well on your way to finishing your first memory jug in this two-day class.
To see more examples of Laurie's memory jugs, scroll to older posts on this blog, or even better, attend her current art exhibit at the Loveland Museum, entitled Memento Mori. The exhibit showcases fourteen of her intricately constructed memory jugs alongside her poignant altar installations, all dedicated to her family. Memento Mori opened August 29 and closes on November 1, 2009.
