Wonder'neath Open Studio

January 23, 2015 The studio was buzzing with 53 artists of all ages who joined us and typed on old typewriters, felted, tried watercolour painting, made quilts and inspired each other. This was our biggest day since our Open Studio launch so it was a genuine treat to be among so many creative people in our community.

The watercolour and glass painting table!  The glass came from Fowler, Bauld & Mitchell - an architecture firm  in downtown Halifax that donated samples of glass and other materials before they moved to their new Hollis Street location.  The samples have inspired us all!
