About the event

Ever wonder where your water comes from when you turn on the faucet?

Through art-making and conversation, this workshop is designed to build awareness around our local water resources and how they relate to the Connecticut River. Together, we will learn how to be better stewards of the water that sustains our life and ecosystems!

We will begin with a short presentation from Nina Gordon-Kirsch, the Massachusetts River Steward at the Connecticut River Conservancy. She will teach us about local water resources, what water flows to our tap, and where it goes after we use it. Then we will have community conversation about how removed humans have become from the water cycle, and what we can do to reconnect. While discussing, we will have some artistic creation time. We will weave together blue fabric to represent how we are all a part of the watershed. There will also be water color paper and natural indigo dye for you to paint your reflections, how you feel, or what you learned at the event. No artistic experience neccesary! 

This is a family friendly event - bring your kids, friends, and students!

Light refreshments will be served.


Sulis Studio is an artist collective and community art space that hosts workshops, classes and collaborative events. We partner with local organizations and artists to promote community responsibility for the arts, healing, and social justice.

Accessibility: The building is wheelchair accessible, with a ramp in the front of the building and a freight elevator in the back. There are wheelchair accessible bathrooms located on the first floor. If you’d like to use the elevator, please contact Becca at 617-935-6169 or email Sulis Studio at so we can assist in operating the elevator. There will be floor and chair seating available in the space, including a couch, floor cushions, stools, and standing options.

This event will be located indoors. Masks are encouraged but not mandatory.
