In addition to drop-in pottery painting and glass fusing, we've been offering workshops and courses for many years. Your leaders in art are long-time creative associate Val, and owner Ron. Both leaders agree that living a creative life is essential to wellness and that life is too short to worry about the colour of your beret. However, they are serious about sharing art tips and tricks that will leave you with a "I can't believe I made that" feeling. With over a quarter century of combined experience leading adult workshops and courses, kids camps and group events, you're in good creative hands :) Pre-payment is required for all courses and workshops. Thanks!
