FLIP YOUR PERSPECTIVE: turn your mistakes into masterpieces

Friday, February 11th at 10:30AM

Presented by Wendy Gilhulua, PIKA Ceramics

Have you ever wondered...What if I am not perfect the first time? Do you let the fear of not being perfect keep you from enjoying or learning something new? Sometimes your mistakes can be your masterpieces when we lean in and flip your perspective. Join me, Wendy Gilhula, while I throw pottery, make a mistake or two, and answer questions about how to have the courage to see things in a different way. During this onstage, live demonstration, and talk... the curious will watch me throw pottery while learning about creativity and how to celebrate mistakes.
