Bria Miller is settling in at the studio and enjoying time to create alongside Open Studio participants as part of her residency. Keen after school crowd from two local schools: Shambala and St Joseph's A. McKay join her at the felting table.

A special Open House will take place at Wonder'neath (2891 Isleville Street, 2nd Floor) on Sunday, October 1st from 2-4pm. Join Bria as part of Culture Days in celebration of her practice and residency. There will be refreshments and materials for making bracelets and bunting while considering what community means to you. All welcome, although we regret our location is not accessible. If you wish to connect with Bria through skype, or FaceTime because we can't meet your accessibility needs, we will make that happen.

During Open Studio, our artists often work away on their studios. Bethany is loading a kiln in the picture below!

Bethany Riordan-Butterworth is one of our studio artists! She's talented and incredibly generous - on firing days she does extra chores to help maintain studio order. ;)
