An Experience of Your Lifetime—If you’ve ever dreamed of experiencing wide-open spaces, starry night skies, purple mountains, sage green mesas, and red rock formations, come to Ghost Ranch! Immerse yourself in the multi-cultural nature and stunning landscape of this 21,000 acre working Ranch in Northern New Mexico.There are a few different course options while you are on the ranch:
Micaceous Pottery: The Spirit of Clay, taught by Clarence Cruz
The rich earth of this mysterious and sacred landscape is the starting point for this class. After thanking the earth and gathering the clay, you will learn how to prepare it and coil it into pots, then fire your pots in ways traditional to the Pueblo Potter.
Beading on the Loom: The Art of Pueblo Style Bead Work, taught by Marvin Gabaldon
The art of the loom beading beautifully captures designs that are created on paper and then strung on a loom. Let your mind design what you would like to see in your piece. This course will include hands on instruction from beginning to the end of the class. Rooted in the context of Pueblo culture and craft, we will create loomed art that will capture your inner spirit.
Please note classes and instructors are subject to change.
There may also be group expeditions to archeologicall sites, visiting speakers, challenge course, hikes, spa visits, Native American celebrations and tours to other areas of interest. Former students have described this as an amazing experience. For more information and pictures, check out the blog: https://carrollatghostranch.wordpress.com.
