A group of fun loving friends came to the Art Lab to have a ladies night out.

We got into some Reckless Painting.

It was a great evening with lots of laughter.

Haida Gwaii

Making some dioramas of old Haida Villages was a huge hit with the kids.
This was a lengthy process that  yielded hug results and lent to fabulous conversations about Haida life.

Art Party

I love decorating for parties.
The theme was an "Art Party", so I made paper splatter paint splotches all over the walls and decorated
the room full of colurs and supplies.
Hung brushes from the windows to add a fun new touch.

And lots of balloons and streamers of course.
It was a perfect painting party and all the kids had fun.

Bike Tube Jewellery

A great way to recycle.
I have been using bike tubes for many things over the years.
Jewellery has been quite popular in the crafting circuit.
I made these as an example for some students to show how quick it is to do.

Crafts for me

I've been loving the art of crocheting, and I'm starting to get the hang of it pretty decent.
I got a 25mm hook and i'm so excited.

And then my really love, quilting.
This is a new heart quilt that i am making to donate to YANA auction.
Loving working with these colours.
