Embrace your creativity!
Brucemore is partnering with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio to bring a one-of-a-kind workshop to Art at Brucemore! A “Bowl of Plenty” is a common symbol found throughout homes built in the late 19th and early 20th century. A symbol of abundance and hospitality and typically filled with fruits and nuts, you will find several Bowls of Plenty at Brucemore – in the mansion and around the estate. In this workshop, participants will create their own Bowl of Plenty, including what fills the bowl. Hand build your unique bowl and then decide what types of fruit, nuts, and foliage you want to mold and place inside your Bowl of Plenty!
This workshop is hosted in the Brucemore Visitor Center. All instructions and materials are provided during the workshop. Following the workshop, the instructor will take the projects to the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio for firing in their kiln. Brucemore will notify participants when their creations are ready for pick-up from the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio, approximately three weeks following the class date.
Reserve your spot by Wednesday, May 10 at 5 PM.
This event is held in partnership with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio.
