Wonder'neath Open Studio

January 9th - Wet snow and a quiet start but the room was alive with 35 new and familiar neighbours and visitors. So excited about folks who came in from Sambro area because they were curious! And new Oxford Junior High students who made so much and loved the freedom to explore materials. Friends from Team Possibles returning and leading the way for new felters; more amazing pin cushions; dancing to live music (played by request!); a bowling alley made from plasticine; and so many generous offers to bring in donations of materials. We thank you all!

 

Quiet beginnings: needle felting, settling in and sharing tips about writing grant applications for open studios.

Painting on glass awesomeness.  Glass donated from architect friends at Fowler Bauld & Mitchell - thanks! And only an hour after writing 'glass paints' on our wish list, we had a neighbour drop by and offer us materials - including glass paints!
