Event Details

Do you love getting crafty with others? Looking for some new techniques?

In collaboration with Papergirl, Caede Pungente of Caede's Cards will be putting on a workshop where you can hone your papercrafting skills and use a sewing machine. This card-making workshop will be a perfect opportunity to make customized cards for upcoming celebrations, special events or a simple thank you. If you are interested in collage or assemblage art, then this workshop is for you!

This workshop is free, and materials will be supplied. Space is limited so register early!

You will go home with several new tips and techniques as well as your own unique card. You will also be contributing to Papergirl Vancouver's movement of giving by sharing your design.



ABOUT CAEDE
 

You might recognize Caede's creative work from the Oak Street Farmer's Market or Bird on a Wire Creations (Main street) where she has exhibited and sold her unique cards. Caede has worked in various mediums from ceramic tile mosaics, fabric, and more recently with paper. She teaches classes that encourage others to use their creativity.

With a keen eye for proportion, colour and texture, Caede delights in creating custom and one-of-a-kind creations. Some of her favourite techniques include paper folding, sewing and paper ripping; using typical montage tools scissors and glue, but also more uncommonly, she employs a sewing machine with long straight stitches or zig zag stitches for a unique touch!


This event has been graciously funded by a Little Mountain neighbourhood small grant. We thank the Vancouver Foundation for their support of building strong, creative communities!

Papergirl Vancouver

OUR MISSION

Papergirl is an inclusive, non-commercial art project that brings people together in celebration of art and community in an unconventional way: through the spirit of altruism.

WHAT WE DO
In this annual project, artists of all ages and abilities are invited to donate their work to a non-juried exhibition.  Afterward, the artwork is rolled into bundles and is distributed by a team of cyclists (in the style of the American paperboy) to anyone they meet along specific bike routes around the lower mainland of British Columbia, Canada. 
WHY WE DO IT
We view this simple act as a significant performance, where the individual artworks become part of a larger community-engaged project. The gifting of art takes Papergirl participants and strangers outside of their everyday experience of the traditional market economy that identifies art consumers by socio-economic class and education. When an artist gives their work as a gift, they build a relationship with the recipient and with others affected by their creativity and this act of kindness. Papergirl brings art back to its identity as true creativity: a 'pure gift' that builds community through sharing. 
In 2012, the Vancouver Foundation came out with some solid research on the number one problem faced by Vancouverites:  one quarter of our population suffers from isolation and loneliness, and a majority of people complain on some level about the difficulty of meeting new people, and a lack of community. Papergirl Vancouver is taking steps to combat this problem by using art as a vehicle for social change.
