Land-based learning: making a clay vessel

This workshop is about experiencing an Indigenous perspective towards the environment and water through making a clay vessel.  Participants will learn about Indigenous pottery from the Manitoba region, familial relationship to the land through a Cree and Ojibway lens and, practical knowledge on hand-building a vessel from locally sourced clay.   People taking this class will walk away with a fired vessel to remind them of this experience, a better understanding of Indigenous ingenuity, and a renewed relationship with land and water.

Saturday, August 28 from 10 am – 12 noon

This event is free but requires registration (Registration for this event is now full).

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
