Pottery Class
Great for individuals, families, and groups of any size. Fun corporate team-building! Our pottery "experiences" are taught by local ceramic artists who volunteer their time, and 100% of net profits to charity. Paseo Pottery has joined the rank of a growing number of businesses embracing a radical form of conscious capitalism: cover costs, then donate rest to improve society. We start each pottery class by doling out drinks (we’ve got a variety of beverages to choose from, and you’re welcome to BYOB as well). Then we take students on a tour of our studio where over a dozen Santa Fe ceramic artists come to create. Paseo Pottery has been part of the local art scene for three decades. All of our classes are one-time, two-hour classes that prioritize the experience of touching, forming, and manipulating clay into expressions of art. The classes are experience-based, meaning that at the end of each session students recycle their work back into the clay mound. Students do not, however, walk away empty handed as they receive a $15 credit to chose a piece of pottery from the gallery, which is full of pottery handcrafted by local Santa Fe artists.
The Santa Fe Creative Adventurer Scavenger Hunt
Welcome to my tour guide designed interactive scavenger hunt! These unique experiences are a departure from traditional scavenger hunts and are created to allow visitors to a new place to go deeper fast. They allow opportunities to talk to locals about fun subjects, get creative with the environment and act as detectives on the hunt for art and interesting local stories. The magical part is the energy and uniqueness you bring to the table because every game ends up looking a little bit different. Its an chance to connect with your team mates in a lighthearted and fun way, get plenty of fun photos and videos and allow yourselves to just play. The game is designed for all ages of people who enjoy exploring and being creative. Little ones do well on an adult led team. Older teens may enjoy playing on their own team. Boys vs the girls can be fun for some friendly competition. The game also works whether its the 2 of you or up to 30 in your group. The hunts are little compressed engines that explode into all kinds of different possibilities. This game is a co-creation between you & your interactive host who is customizing and interacting as you play. Specific correct answers get additional stories and facts from your host who is in your pocket on Whats App. Other hunt locations include Taos, The Rio Grande, Steamboat Springs, New Orleans, and many places in Arizona & Hawaii.
Magical Old Town, Past and Present
Our exploration of the Old Town Plaza will begin with coffee, tea and biscochitos on the balcony of our home, looking out over the original town square and historic San Felipe Church. We will overlook history as well, and gaze back from the Tewa people on who’s land Old Town was built, to life on the plaza during the Spanish, Mexican and American colonial periods. Next we will undertake a walking tour of the plaza with a focus on the old adobe architecture and the stories associated with the buildings and smaller placitas that make up Old Town, using historical photos and visuals to support the information. This stroll will include secrets and lore unknown even to most Albuquerque residents, interaction with some of the "old timers" that live and work here, and pointers what to see and do and where to eat, tailored to the needs and interests of each group. Old Town is a valuable community resource and there are frequent impromptu happenings- quinceaneras, vintage car parades, etc. The tour will embrace these spontaneous events as they occur making the visit to Old Town even more vibrant and personal. Finally, at the end of the tour experience, participants have the option of being served lunch at La Placita Dining Room in the Manuel Armijo House, one of the oldest structures on the Plaza, built in 1706. Please contact for custom tour times. Se habla espanol. Other things to note As planned the tour involves one flight of stairs.
Nature Immersion-Unplug in the desert
Have you ever noticed that you feel better after being outside? Scientific studies are now showing that time in nature can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve your sleep and creativity. In this guided experience, you will unplug from the stresses of daily life and enjoy spending time in the high desert foothills of Albuquerque. This is not a hard hike and not really a nature walk either. In fact, we may barely cover a mile and it will involve plenty of sitting. This is good for people of all physical abilities, who might be a little hesitant to explore the outdoors on their own or who want to unwind and slowdown. And don’t worry….this is not religiously based, you aren’t required to share any of your thoughts if you don’t want to and there will be no awkward drumming sessions! Instead, we’ll use the sweeping views of the mountains and valley to hone your quiet observation skills, give you some time to de-stress and perhaps you’ll trip over some emotional insights along the way. There will be several segments, each with a different focus, and we’ll end with a cup of coffee in the outdoors. The hope is that you will come away feeling a sense of well-being. **** Great for teams looking for a bonding experience and for a way to de-stress. Note: Pit toilets are at the parking lots, but not along the trails. Allow extra time to pay for parking and use the bathroom
Freestyle Weaving

Choose your color and texture palette! 3. We will learn to wind yarn onto bobbins, so you can begin your creation. 4. We always start simple and learn the basic steps of weaving. Shuttle, feet, beat! 5. As you get comfortable, we can start adding texture, colors, and design with different techniques. 6. When you near the end of your time, we will take your piece off the loom and finish the ends by knotting the warp. 7. You will walk out the door with your woven creation! Other things to note: I am flexible, write me if you have a special time or another request. We might be able to work something out. Eat or snack before you come, eating while weaving is difficult!

Tour a Sustainable Living Center
Come to our living laboratory for sustainable systems, and get a personalized tour. I can show you how our natural buildings were created with local and salvaged materials. I can explain how the 3 different hand built passive solar water heaters work, as well as the solar design of the buildings and other appropriate technologies. See our rainwater systems. We live here completely on rainwater, there is no well. I will show you our gardens and greenhouses that rely on the rainwater as well. Our site is always in progress. It's rustic, hand built, and saturated in intentional design. We will spend an hour touring and sharing models for sustainable living. I'd love to hear about your own sustainable projects as well. It's always fun brainstorming. I have designed all the systems on site and spent the last 15 years living with them and refining them. We start in the outdoor community kitchen and wander through the passive solar earthbag hybrid house that we built for ourselves. Access to the inside of the small strawbale cottages is variable as we may be hosting students and residents. Other things to note Remember it's a mile and a half down a bumpy dirt road to get to our site. 4wd or high clearance is preferred but usually not absolutely necessary. Stay in touch with us about wet road conditions.

Willa Cather's Santa Fe
On this 2.5-hour walking tour, we’ll explore how author Willa Cather was inspired to write her "best book" (her words), "Death Comes for the Archbishop" by retracing her steps through Santa Fe in 1925 and 1926. We'll gather at the Plaza opposite La Fonda, where Cather and her partner Edith Lewis stayed during their visits. Cather has become an LGBTQ+ icon since the publication of her letters in 2011, and during this experience we will read from her letters, interviews, and articles, in addition to seeing historic footage of Santa Fe. Our walking route covers about 1.5 miles, mostly on sidewalks, but also climbs a hill to the Cross of the Martyrs with its outstanding view of the city below. During our time together, we'll explore aspects of the novel, such as Kit Carson, Padre Antonio José Martínez, and of course Archbishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy, New Mexico's first Catholic archbishop and the real-life inspiration for the fictional Bishop Latour in Cather's book. We will learn about Sister Blandina Segale who helped set up a hospital in Lamy's house, and visit the last remnant of Lamy's six-acre garden behind the St. Francis Cathedral in the peaceful Stations of the Cross Prayer Garden. Whether you are a local or a visitor, you will see Santa Fe in an entirely different light. And you may well find yourself part of the community known as "Cather People."
Feed, walk with, groom and love a rescue horse
Visit New Mexico's expansive high plains, roll up your sleeves for morning chores and then spend some very special, hands on time with our varied horse herd. Walkin N Circles Rescue Ranch is home for up to 50 horses who have been abandoned, neglected, abused or surrendered. After first addressing a horse's physical health, the real work begins to regain their trust, to gently teach them how to be safe around humans, and ultimately find them a loving, forever home. After pouring yourself a cup of coffee, hop onto the hay wagon for a trip out to several paddocks. At each stop you participate in a teeny bit of daily chores: tie down a feed bag, strain water, muck stalls, and prep feed for the following day. Guests are then invited to halter & walk a horse to an area where you can spend time grooming, petting and basically giving him/her the social interaction that is important for their happiness. As one of our guests, Danika, wrote in her review, "you can become as involved as you want". Everything is done with a ranch person and you will never feel unsafe. Photo opportunities, horse hugs and warm fuzzy feelings will abound! For liability reasons, an Airbnb reservation is required to enter our property. Being a social impact experience, Airbnb has waived their fee! 100% of the proceeds received for the tour goes to the care of the horses at Walkin N Circles Ranch.
Explore Santa Fe's Historic Railyard
On this 90-minute walking tour, we’ll make our way along the historic railroad tracks, sidings, and warehouses as we explore how the railroad changed Santa Fe when it arrived in 1880 - and how this vibrant arts and historic district has become Santa Fe's "living room." We'll gather under the Railyard's 40,000-gallon water tower to learn about how the railroad came to the Southwest and connected the region to the rest of the country - and opened it up to tourism. You'll learn about Prohibition-era brothels and the murder of the chief of police, and how the Railyard evolved from a transportation hub into an arts and cultural center. Our walking route covers about 1 mile on sidewalks and features two historic depots, warehouses, a slough of railroad buildings dating to the 1880s along Guadalupe Street, the Santuario de Guadalupe - the oldest shrine in the United States - and the historic lumberyard of the Sanbusco center (now New Mexico School for the Arts), which supplied building materials for the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos during World War II. Bring your camera and good walking shoes. The Railyard has considerable urban charm, numerous art galleries, restaurants, and hosts the city's farmers market. This experience is great for groups, teams, and team-building!
Stained Glass Class -Hidden Santa Fe Gem
How often do you get to dabble in an art form that began in the 600's AD? Our class invites participants into century's-old techniques to create glass suncatcher ornaments. You'll learn how to create a design that works for the medium of glass, score and break colorful or clear art glass, and utilize techniques developed by Tiffany and others to bind the glass pieces together into a finished suncatcher ornament to bring home with you. (And yes, you can take it on a plane.) Masks and vaccines required Absolute novices welcome!
