Ashevillage Founder teaches at annual earth skills gathering

Janell Kapoor, founder of the Ashevillage Institute, led a "Clay Paint Making" workshop this past weekend at the Firefly Gathering. Firefly is an annual event for people seeking to deepen their connection with the natural world through rewilding, primitive, homesteading, and sustainability skills in WNC.

The group included locals, as well as folks from as far away as New York and England, with one guy on his way to Mali, Africa for the next 5 years (he can come back and teach us a thing, or two). We started the class with finding clays and sands from 100' around us, and finished with an impressive palette of soft orange, beige, and gray paints. Thanks to the Firefly crew for hosting all of us!!!
