Acrylic Painting - Fall Reflections: Create a simple but dynamic and colourful river or lake landscape which has a sense of movement and depth. Laura Chandler will show you how.

Block Printed Greeting Cards: Whether for seasonal greetings, birthdays or other occasions, hand-made cards send a special message. Join Frances Anderson to create unique cards using your own design carved into a soft rubber block.

Mandala Dot Painting: Lynne Biles will teach you about the tools, paints and materials used in mandala dotting.  Use what you’ve learned to create two beautiful pieces to keep or give away.

Leaf Printing: Fall is an amazing time, with the leaves changing colour and blowing in the wind. Capture that feeling and bring it indoors by printing with leaves on paper and fabric.

Sassy Cross Stitch: Have fun learning the fundamentals of cross stitch to create sassy (or subversive) messages to display or give away. 

Upcycled Jewelry: Create original designs on jewelry using nail polish with Julia Whittaker. You will leave at the end of the evening with 2 unique, custom pieces. We have necklaces, earrings or cuffs for you to work with. Feel free to bring old jewelry you would like to upcycle.
