Renaissance Hall Ceramics Studio
North Dakota State University
Facilitated by Josh Zeis and Michael Strand
- These interactive workshops will have different stations for participants to work on different craft projects. These projects include:
- Heirloom Workshop: Fargo veteran and artist, Josh Zeis, along with Fargo artist and NDSU faculty member Michael Strand, will work with the public to create cups for veterans and families who served in the military. The process is simple: participants are asked to bring in objects from military service, medals, tools, etc. From these objects we will transform ceramic cups into family heirlooms that will tell the story of military service. These workshops are free, but limited to four veterans/families per event evening.
- Fragments of War is an exhibition opportunity for veterans of any era to display and discuss objects that they consider important, along with stories about why these objects hold meaning. Join veteran and artist Josh Zeis, along with Fargo artist and NDSU faculty member Michael Strand in this workshop, which will give participants a unique opportunity to share thoughts and memories of military service. From ordinary to extraordinary, these objects will tell a different story of military service and provide insight to the general public about what it means to serve.
