ChaSHama Immigrant Initiative Classes

  • Brooklyn clay 673 5th Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

Classes start January 29th - February for the first Group of Participants

Through a grant (Immigrant Initiative)  given to CHASHAMA, by Council Member Carlos Menchaca,  I will be teaching workshops of 4 sessions  at Brooklyn Clay. 

The classes are for immigrant mothers living in CD38, SUNSET PARK. 

The workshop will focus on creating a vessel of the participants choice and learning the process from hand building with clay, choosing a design and following firing and glazing, until the object is ready for use. The class will help the participants find ways to relax and digest their lives, along with some  empowering sessions focussing on immigration law and rights of immigrants in this country and also any pressing information regarding rights, that need to be addressed by the group. These workshops will be principally for empowering women through knowledge of the law and also therapy of their soul.
