One of my favourite things to do when I’m in a period of chaos, doldrums or winter-blahs is to carve out time to play creatively. Join me for this brand new series of workshops entitled, Artsy Play Dates (APD). The concept is simple - Each date we will complete a creative project together. I will have done enough research to gather the supplies and lead you in the making but please do keep in mind, I am learning and playing too as we go along. Collaboration is our tutor and our Creativity and Intuition will be our guides. Bring along some drinks, vino and snacks if that’s what make you happy and come play with me!
Breathe LIFE into a wooden chair.
Saturday Feb 8, 10-4 $149 + HST
I’d like to call this chair Angelica. She is beautiful, graceful yet simple and down to earth; her personality is now revealed. Give an old chair a personality by painting, distressing, adding wings, a crown, feet? Let your imagination soar as you take a thrift store find to elevated fun heights. I will teach you how to design and translate your skills into reality by cleaning, painting, distressing, cutting out wood, (with power tools), attaching wood to the chair, and finishing your piece. This is a fun workshop where we will learn to translate our ideas into tangible pieces using workshop and art studios skills. Need a chair? Be sure to look on FB marketplace, kijiji or thrift stores.
I will supply all paints, adhesives, wood, tools use, and wax sealer. You will need a wooden chair, your imagination, anything else you think might go on your finished piece (details - ephemera etc).
What to bring...
Ephemera you know I wont have :-)
