Sculpey workshop: Making Minis with artist Jayce Thoyre

Sunday, Mar 3, 2024, 1:00pm to 4:00pm

In a museum exhibit about your life, what objects, heirlooms, and artifacts would you want on display? What stories would those pieces have to tell? In this workshop, local artist Jayce Thoyre will demonstrate how to create a miniature model using Sculpey clay. The models you create can be taken home after, or added to a miniature dollhouse installation, Welcome Home, outside the Bubbler Room.

This workshop is a part of Family Reunion, the Bubbler Room Artist-in-Residence (Feb-May) with Grace Olson. 
Family Reunion is a space for reimagination and celebration of family in all the forms it can take. In this space, you are invited to take part in creative projects that explore the ways we all find, make, experience, and practice family. Grace's intention as a facilitator is to shed light on the unconventional and to encourage change toward more intentionality and interdependence. The wishing, making, tinkering, and pondering we do together will explore questions such as:

  • Who is in your lineage?
  • What stories/skills/heirlooms/artifacts/ways of being/ways of thinking do you wish to bring forward?
  • Where do you find a sense of home?
  • When does one “start a family”, and what does that mean?
  • How can we move towards building more loving and resilient family structures?
