You will leave her classes and energy sessions feeling aligned, replenished, and refreshed.
As an emerging artist, Rebecca Ramsey embraces an interdisciplinary practice which focuses on exploring the intersections of ceramics, drawing and animation. As a maker, she is deeply engaged with the materiality of clay and its metaphors of memory, time and transformation. She is especially interested in how clay operates in installations with other materials such as film or fabric. Her work often reflects on experiences in the studio, as well as natural and evolutionary cycles and their relationship to notions of becoming and time.
