We’ve partnered with our friends at Earth + Element and The Beatrice Wood Center to curate a special day for you – an afternoon inspired by legendary ceramicist Beatrice Wood and designed to nourish your wellbeing and creativity.
We welcome you with plant-based hors d’oeuvres and floral beverages as we begin with a walkthrough of Beatrice Wood’s original home studio to explore her ceramics, drawings, and sculptures.
We’ll have the privilege to hear personal anecdotes directly from the center’s director, Kevin Wallace, who worked alongside Beatrice Wood, “Beato,” during her last years in life, making us feel connected to her vivacious personality and influence in modern art history that inspired director James Camron to create the character of Rose in the 1997 film Titanic.
We’ll then settle into the peaceful outdoor space surrounded by the Ojai hills and dive into our Clay + Flowers workshop with Earth + Element and experiment creating textures and designs using flower petals and leaves. In this workshop, you’ll be able to create whatever is calling to you, whether it be a hand-built cup, a ring dish or small bowl.
You’ll have the opportunity to make three small ceramic pieces of your own — drawing inspiration from the same natural surroundings that once guided Beatrice’s famous artwork while learning from Earth + Element’s modern, rustic ceramic techniques. You’ll also learn how to glaze and use wax resist on a pre-made fired dish, that you also get to keep! Thus gaining knowledge of the complete ceramics process.
Before we wrap up the day and venture off, we’ll enjoy a chocolate tasting by Beato Chocolates, an Ojai-based chocolatier created to honor Beatrice Wood’s love for chocolates.
