Join us for Northern Lights Paint & Sip Night on Saturday, December 12. Teacher Naomi Topuzoglu will walk you through this stunning painting in just a short time & you’ll have a masterpiece to take home or give away as a gift. Evening includes two glasses of wine or one bottle of craft beer and appetizers. We also provide coffee, tea and as a special treat we’ll also have Hot Apple Cider and cookies. Reduced rates for friends or couples who attend together! Book on our Camps & Classes Page.
For our December 10 UFO & WIPs night, 100 Braid St knitting teacher Brenda Hatch and Crochet & Counted Cross Stitch teacher, Carla Thompson will be on hand for an evening around the fireplace! They’re ready to help you with any projects that you’re trying to get finished off & need help with, or they’re around to just chat about about creating. Artist & owner Susan L. Greig will also be on hand doing some collage work & since we have a huge number of craft paints, papers and other donated materials you are welcome to come, sit, craft and create along with her. It’s a great time to hang out with old friend, meet new friends, share refreshments and get stuff done in the company of other makers. $2 donation fee goes to purchase materials for Artism-art classes for children, youth and adults with Autism & special needs. Register on our camps & classes page or drop-in and bring a toonie.
Are you looking for a way to inspire your team creatively? Need to get out of the office and get to know one another better? Our former winery warehouse with its 13 ft ceilings, huge windows and 16 working artists studios is a creatively inspiring space. It allows you to loosen up and bond with co-workers in a unique way.
Creating art in various forms can be intimidating but it’s very rewarding to work through fears and come out the other side with a masterpiece – or a group masterpiece. We love to see how anxiety turns to pride in a few short hours. Painting on canvas, glass & ceramics is very therapeutic and it exposes a whole different side to people’s personalities.
Events are generally 3 hours long; at the half way point we break, walk around and look at each others work & a tour of the artists working studios is provided. There’s also time for food and drink and camaraderie is strengthened!
We normally schedule team bonding events Tuesday-Fridays but evenings and some Saturdays are also available. For more information check out our website: under the Book a Party header on our website.
