Touch the Spirit of Clay

By Tracey Welsh, General Manager

Our new “Touch the Spirit of Clay” pottery workshop is a natural fit into our guest programming at Red Mountain Resort. Working with the clay offers many lessons, from the rich history and methods of the Anasazi, to the joys of decoration and creating something beautiful and useful, using ancient methods. You readily learn that the clay has a spirit or direction of its own, and its texture and workability at that moment lends itself to the creation of your final design. Personally, what I found most delightful, was the time spent learning and creating with other people in my group. We shared a few laughs and celebrated our creations. My Anasazi inspired vessel will now sit on my desk as a fond memory of that day at Red Mountain.
