In this class we will explore the history of Memory Jugs (also called Whatnot jars, Forget-me-not jugs, spirit vessels and mourning jugs) while making our own modern Memory Jug. 

Ani Hoover began her artistic journey as a painter, receiving both a BFA and MFA in painting. She now works primarily in fiber-based sculpture and has a fondness for using found materials. Her work is in numerous collections including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Burchfield Penney Art Center, and Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Hoover has participated in several artist residencies including Haystack’s open residency program and the StudioWorks program in Eastport, Maine.

Participants should bring a jar (any jelly or pickle jar will do) and their own memory objects to add to their jar.  These objects can include small toys, broken jewelry, old keys, pet tags, political buttons, marble or any small objects (please do not bring priceless or heirloom objects as they will be glued down and will not be removable).
