Mast on Fig is ever so pleased to announce our VERY LAST summertime “Intimate Experience” with artist Michael Parker. Intimate Experiences are performative experiments (concerts, classes, conversations, workshops, readings, meditations, etc.) that took place on a weekly basis over the course of the summer of 2019.Michael Parker
Naked Life Sculpting Workshop
Saturday, August 31th 2-4 PM
Mast on Fig
4030 N Figueroa St LA 90065
Limit: 10 people
Cost: $20 per person
(Clay & tools will be provided)

This truly intimate workshop is an experimental gesture that only Mast on Fig could produce! The workshop will begin with a recap on how to work clay using your bare hands. We will make a series of brief, gestural clay studies. Engaging in a process that resembles blind contour drawing, participants will be encouraged never to put the clay down. As the day heats up, everyone will disrobe (nudity is highly encouraged but you may keep your undies on if you’d like). We will take turns acting as the model, either striking a still pose for 3 to 5 minutes or moving very slowly for a short period of time. All in attendance will remain unclothed throughout the workshop while we make clay gestural studies of one another. It’s the end of summer — the weather will be hot. We will provide all the tools you need and some cool refreshments. No cameras allowed.
