Ellie-Kay from Mondrem CiC

Dorodango ball

Dorodango ball making.
Saturday 20th April, 11-1pm and 1:30-3:30pm. DROP IN - duration approx 30 minutes.

Dorodango (Japanese for "mud dumpling") is a Japanese art form in which soil and water are combined and moulded, then carefully polished to create a delicate shiny sphere. During this drop in you will join Ellie-Kay from Mondrem CiC and get to make your own Dorodango ball to take away to continue to shine. The shining process has been described as a form of meditation and there comes a point when you start to feel a real connection to the object you have created. What once was soil, becomes precious to you as it slowly starts to shine.
