From the time we landed in Klaipeda, after a 14 hour overnight ferry ride from Karlshamn, the workshop participants were drawn into an  unfolding Lithuanian  adventure. The port city is a shaggy accumulation of old stately houses and urban buildings, mixed with port structures, soviet era housing blocks and more recent post-1989 post modern Baltic styled architecture. But all over there were hundreds of sculptures, odd shaped abstract forms, bizarre representations of mermaids with two legged fins, a large quantity of childlike figurines, and traditional Soviet realist sculptures, including a colossal sword that would rival anything Saddam Hussein created for Bagdad.
