BEESWAX Wrap Workshop - NEW!

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn all about beeswax food wrap. Working together, participants will choose their 100% cotton fabric (you can bring your own if 100% cotton), cut it to the desired size, and have the opportunity to try different techniques to infuse it with the beeswax. Eveline Lemieux has a Masters degree in environmental science and is the owner of Bee Sustainable Food Wrap since 2016. She will introduce some of the ideas behind the usage of these wraps and share tips on how to include them in your day-to-day life. Participants will walk away with a greater awareness about plastic wrapping problems and solutions, and how beeswax food wraps can be ready to use. We will supply everything needed, however if you have 100% cotton fabric that you want to use and an iron that you can bring, that would be great too!

FIGURE Painting and Drawing

Come join this weekly gathering and practice your figure drawing or painting skills while learning and sharing with your fellow artists. A model is organized each week for the group.  The model poses in the natural form in an extended pose. On occasion a draped model may be brought in, but this is only with agreement of the group. Participants work in the medium of their choice and provide their own materials. Easels are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no instructor in this class, learning is in the doing and the sharing among participants. Beginners as well as experienced artists are welcome.
