Sale price Price $900.00 Regular price

At Arcosanti, the unique and vibrant built environment is a living archive that displays the collective efforts of over 8,000 individual workshop participants and volunteers going back more than 5 decades. The 5 Day Immersive Experience allows participants the unique opportunity of living amongst the community of around 70 full-time residents, while learning and experiencing the ethos of the work which takes place here. Experience all of this against the backdrop of 4,000 acres of undeveloped Arizona high desert.

This class starts with an introduction to Arcosanti and Site Tour, and will then include: a deep dive into the Soleri Archives, a Ceramic Silt Casting workshop, and a guided Nature Hike in the Agua Fria River Riparian Area. During this extended stay you will also get to experience:
