PAWcasso! Doggy Edition
September 10, 11am-1pm
Create a painted masterpiece . . . with your dog! Grab your pooch and join us for an outdoor painting adventure. First your dog will paint with a painted paws technique, and then with guidance by dog-lover and artist Ruth Hoyem, you’ll finish your masterpiece by skillfully blending your brush strokes with your dog’s paw painting to create your own abstract or personalized work of art. Canvases, non-toxic paints and light refreshments for both humans and canines will be provided.
One dog per human participant; all dogs must be up-to-date with vaccinations and leashed at all times.
December 8, 7-9pm
Get a kick start on the holiday celebrations with this fun and crafty event! In a social and relaxed atmosphere, learn basic techniques of wet felting from our community engagement specialist and fibre artist Catherine Dumaine. Then create your own felted keepsakes or gifts while enjoying complimentary savory tidbits and, perhaps, a glass of wine. With the knowledge you gain, you can continue making felted items at home!

Pottery, Pizza & Pinot

Take part in an exclusive, handbuilding pottery workshop with Place des Arts’ pottery teacher and department head Vin Arora. And that’s just the start of the fun! You will also ‘handbuild’ your very own Neapolitan-inspired, personal-sized pizza that will be fired in an actual pottery kiln. Complete the experience by pairing your pizza with a glass of pinot (blanc or noir) or, if you're a traditionalist, beer!
Pizzas will be fired on brand new food-safe stones.
