The pit of a sweet and juicy peach is seen in Japanese folklore as a powerful stone to combat unwanted ghosts and spirits. Guided by exhibiting artist Cindy Mochizuki and her work 105 Chrysanthemums on view as part of the exhibition 13 Ways to Summon Ghosts, participants will go on a narrative-driven tiny ghost hunt and create their own tiny ghost story. Using air dry clay, we will imagine our own ghost who lives inside the peach pit as a lucky talisman. Grownups are also welcome.

 ***Registration is required and we request a donation per registrant upon arrival.***
