INTRODUCTION TO FELT MAKING TECHNIQUES
Saturday Oct 15th 10am - 3pm
Students will explore the first stages of felt-making. This involves laying down a web of woollen fibres (fleece/roving) at right angles to each other creating the felt layers. The wet felting process involves the adding of soap and water, the agitation and pressure encourages the fibres to interlock and become a fabric.
NEEDLE FELTING and EMBELLISHMENT TECHNIQUES
Sunday, Oct 16th 10am - 3pm
With needle felting dry fibres are encouraged to interlock through the repeated ‘poking’ of barbed needles. Needle felting is used to create 3D shapes, flat pictures and designs, as well as detail for other types of felting. Don’t forget, samples produced in the previous class can be used.
Workshop Fee: $75 per workshop; please allow an additional $20 for materials
Approx. 8 places in each workshop.
Bring your own lunch and let’s talk textiles!
To register please send your name, address and name of the workshop/s you would like to attend to Betty.Michaud1@gmail.com | 905.471.5195

THE WATERCOLOUR SAMPLER
Watercolour is an enjoyable, lovable, magical medium that combines that which is carefully planned and structured with the unknown element that comes out to play in serendipity and creates a little of the known, hand-in-hand with a little of the unknown. It is a medium for the adventurous: monarchs, prime ministers, artists, figure skaters, aviators, housewives, househusbands, in equal measure males and females, amateurs and professionals, the learned and the experimenters all over the globe. To do a watercolour painting can be something that can be executed on the spur of the moment or worked on in the studio for months. The artwork may be elephant size or minutely miniature.
There is no one way of painting in watercolour and the rules are all made to be broken, or maybe there never were any. The effects achieved depend on the brand, the papers, the brushes and one of the most important elements, the amount of water. It is often called the most difficult medium, but also it is called the easiest. You will paint watercolours that are boldly contemporary abstracts. Also on the roster are en plein air watercolours which can be abstracting landscapes or more traditional pieces. You will experiment with brilliant primary colours, analogous colours, complementary colours and in artist greys. You may concentrate on shapes, patterns, textures and collagedpieces. You can paint on paper, panel or canvas. You can paint birds, trees, fruits, figures or no images at all. Look around our world and you can always find another subject and another way of handling the painting of it.

ACRYLIC ABSTRACTED LANDSCAPES
Learn to paint beautiful art works. This is an acrylic class for all levels highlighted by personal attention and demonstrations. You will work on abstracted landscapes using symbolic representations of nature. You will paint pure abstract images incorporating texture, colour theory, values, shapes plus the careful use of composition. You will experiment with the “how to” of using additives to the acrylic paint repertoire to create exciting effects and make your work unique. Explore a range of acrylic gels, pastes and other acrylic products. Using bold strokes you will surprise yourself with what you will know how to do after a very short time.
Date: September 14 – November 2

WATERCOLOUR ABSTRACTS/ABSTRACTED LANDSCAPES
There is an enjoyment that accompanies a satisfying creative experience and putting a new twist to a beloved activity, such as watercolour painting, is one such experience. You will use various means and resources for inspiration and to help you soar away from what you may have done previously. The act of painting is abstract in itself so it is not really a huge stretch. Learning to paint beautiful art works using good Composition, colour, shapes and values will help you get there. There so many ways to paint: wet in wet, wet on dry, loose and/or detailed. So many options. Demonstrations and one-on-one attention is part of the program. Suitable for all Levels.

Time: 9:30 am to 12:30 pm 6:30 to 9:30 pm

Learning to relax and enjoy what you are doing is really a major part of this course. There will be step by step instruction and ongoing demonstrations. There is help every step of the way. You will enjoy the process which is the most important part.
