Holding Water: Workshop 2

Marcela Torres and Assembly


January 27, 2024, 2:00 – 3:30pm

Holding Water is a two-part workshop that honors the bodies of water with which we have relations with or desire to cultivate deep relationships. Together, we will prepare for and perform rituals that involve ancestral connection or being called to interaction with this vital element.

On Jan 11th we will map and channel the lakes, rivers and ponds we communicate with. During this workshop we will make small clay vessels/canteens to hold our liquid friends. These items will be left and fired with a clear glaze to make them water sealed. Then, on Jan 27th we will celebrate in rituals of song and movements with the previously made water vessels. It's preferred that one attends both workshops, as one is a preparation of ceremony while the other is ceremonial, but no one will be turned away. More details to follow closer to the date.
