RICE: FOOD & FOLK ART

Did you know there are over 2,500 varieties of rice, and that rice is celebrated at least once a year all over the world?  Follow the rice life cycle on its long, labor-intensive journey from seedling to rice paddy, to your rice bowl, and beyond--to amazingly intricate sculptures and paintings made with brightly colored rice flour and rice dough.  This workshop provides a perfect combination of earth science, history, culture, and art.  Just like the cooking pots that helped archaeologists prove that rice cultivation is an 11,000 year old tradition, make a pot embedded with rice decorations to take home.

Best for participants 5 and older.

70-90 minutes

Also pictured is Rangoli and an extended workshop of cooking, coloring, and sculpting your own rice flour dough into offerings.
