Fibre Arts for Children & Youth
Catherine Dumaine is a fibre artist living in Port Coquitlam, B.C. She has been teaching in art centres and institutions around the Lower Mainland and in local schools since 2007. Catherine’s Fibre Fun classes for children are among Place des Arts’ most popular programs, and she is also a regular art camp teacher, where she offers a variety of fibre arts classes to children and youth.
Catherine’s work has been exhibited in shows locally including at Place des Arts, in the Port Moody Festival of the Arts and at Leigh Square Community Arts Village. She also served as the curator for the Craft Year 2007 exhibit Au Naturel.
Catherine has led community engagement workshops for Place des Arts, both at the centre and as a Place des Arts representative at external community events. In 2013, she helped Place des Arts celebrate our 40th Anniversary with her community engagement Social Fabric Project, and in 2016, 2017 and 2018 as an artist in residence, she engaged thousands of school students to create lantern installations that were unveiled during our annual winter season event. Catherine continues to advance her skills through the multitude of fibre arts workshops she takes each year.
