Event Details

Our hands reveal a universal truth and existential absolute. They can be dry, calloused, splintered, chewed, and tender. They also feed us, fuel us, and allow us to banish the fear of that absolute through creating, caressing, consuming, and playing. Join Thomas Martinez Pilnik and the Long Beach Museum of Art in a mud-filled session where we will learn to build with clay and construct ceramic avatars of our own hands.

During this workshop, you will hear about Pilnik’s practice, get your hands dirty playing with clay while learning some hand-building basics, and create a free-standing hand-built terracotta sculpture of your hands (however you interpret it), which he will then glaze and fire for you to pick up once ready.


This Artful Evening workshop is open to participants 16+ with all levels of art experience are welcome.

All materials will be provided. Light refreshments will be available. Day of admission to the museum is included with the purchase of the workshop.
