The Watermill Center has invited the East End community to a new program initiative, Saturdays @ WMC, focusing on unique ways to interact with the Watermill Center grounds, collection, studios, and kitchen. On Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. the center will host local artists to lead workshops inspired by everything the center has to offer.
A free hourlong tour of the Watermill Center building and collection happens at noon. Reservations are not required. From 12:30 to 3 p.m. in the dining room, children of all ages can make colorful translucent vessels inspired by pieces in Robert Wilson’s collection. Materials are limited, so reserving a spot in advance at saturdayswmcandreacote.eventbrite. com is a good idea.
From 1 to 2 p.m. in the large studio space, Geoffrey Nimmer, an Ashtanga yoga teacher, will offer a free yoga class for students of all levels and ages. Attendees have been asked to take their own yoga mat, towel, and water and reserve a spot at saturdayswmcgeoffreyimmer.eventbrite.com. Also from 1 to 2 in the industrial-size kitchen, Pasquale Langella, executive chef at the Red Horse Market in East Hampton, will demonstrate the art of making mozzarella cheese as his family has done for hundreds of years in Naples, Italy.
The Watermill Center grounds will be open and available for sketching throughout the event, with materials supplied. More information is with Kirstin Kapustik at 726-4628 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
