About the Event
As the dog days of summer began to give way to cooler temperatures, the Algonquin fishing tribes converged on the great lakes and other major bodies of water to fish for sturgeon: massive, prehistoric fish that can grow to more than 12 feet long.
Because these fish were such an important part of the tribes’ survival, August’s full moon came to be known as the Full Sturgeon Moon.
Tribes who lived farther south knew it as the Full Red Moon, because the sultry haze of late summer made the moon appear reddish in color.
It was also called the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon, because late summer signified the beginning of the harvest, when food was put away for the cold months ahead.
Let's manifest this inspiration in our cast-metal sculptures this month!
Everyone can expect to make at least one and likely more small scale sculpture(s) and/or charms during the session. Participant artists will have the opportunity to finish the sculpture(s) through filing, ink patinas, and any other needed adjustments to realize their celestial visions. Class size is limited to minimize risks in this Covid time and masks are required.
