With Eyes Closed

26.11.2022 | 17:00-20:00
Amphitheater of JOIST Innovation Park
(including the ingredients, the decoction and the wine that the participants will enjoy at the end of the creative meeting)


BRAGGART gallery in collaboration with the ceramist Christos Giannakopoulos, organizes an original ceramics workshop at the JOIST Innovation Park.

It is a multi-level experiential action with the hands and an amorphous mass of clay as a tool, which is initiated and created by the ceramist Christos Gianakopoulos. Live a unique experience that becomes a reason for everyone not just to relax creatively but, with eyes closed, with the soul as the only guide, to give shape to the clay with the hands as the only tool and to re-evaluate what once was, a child.

As another form of meditation, ceramics works beneficially in the fast pace of modern daily life. One cannot be in a hurry here. Here he puts aside his mobile phone and experiences the redemptive contact of his hands with the most earthly, perhaps ancient, material of creation. The ceramics will be fired in his kiln in Volos and will be returned to the participants, fired and glazed.

Mountain aromas will await the participants at the beginning of the workshop and at the end wine with seasonal fruits and discussion, using our inner senses and creating an atmosphere of relaxation.

The number of participants is limited.
