Clepsydra Workshop with Jonathon Keats
September 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm| Free
Join Flux Exchange artist Jonathon Keats to make a clepsydra, or water clock, an ancient device that measured time using the flow of water. The workshop is an introduction to Keats’s exploration of river time and his goal of moving people to care for the natural world by reconnecting them to the flow of nature, specifically rivers.
For Atlanta River Time, Keats will be working on the Chattahoochee River and its tributaries, including the South Fork of Peachtree Creek, which is accessible in Zonolite Park. We are grateful to the South Fork Conservancy for hosting us.
- This workshop is free, but space is limited, and registration is required to ensure availability of materials.

About Zonolite Park
Zonolite Park, now owned by DeKalb County, features 1.5 miles of gravel trails through 13 acres. The area includes an old-growth forest, a sunny meadow, small rivulets, pavilion, community garden and a beautiful wetland garden. The creek’s sandy beach-like banks are perfect for getting an up-close view of the water. Wildlife seen here includes deer, fish, frogs and birds – including a pair of Great Blue Heron – songbirds and hawks.
