Experience the natural artistry and inspiration of water, fire, and earth elements. On the top of the Great Lakes Basin rim amongst the hardwoods, we will spend a day with Les Cheneaux potters who call this north woods area home. Here, we will learn about a 16th century traditional Japanese ceramic art form called Raku. You will be given Raku instruction and a pre-made pot to glaze and fire. This dramatic outdoor firing process creates a one-of-kind work of art with vibrant colors and crackles.
Float the heat away with day of sea kayaking on Lake Huron. A picnic lunch at a sandy beach and natural area will add to the day’s cooling experience. What happens when water meets the earth? Here is your chance to see some of the areas more unique limestone creations. We will have an opportunity to study Karst, which means limestone that has been eroded to produce sinkholes, fissures, underground streams and caverns. The Northern Lake Huron area is rich in human and glacial history and the wildlife is abundant. Let us show you!
