Learn how to make beautiful coiled baskets out of all those plastic grocery bags clogging up the cupboard. We will use colorful yarns to wrap the bags and coil our creations. Please bring your own stash of bags.
October 12th: Create your own Zine
We will explore the counterculture world of zines, the handmade magazine movement. Using your own unique knowledge and interests, we’ll use paper, pens, and other art supplies to complete a small 8-page zine. Come equipped with ideas!

Winter is coming! The days are getting colder and darker and it’s time to bring some light and color back into our homes. We will use glass jars, tissue paper, and tea lights to create bright, warming centrepieces. If you have a jar you’d like to use, please bring it!
