Hey YYC! Come join a group of like-minded makers that are craving for a place and space to make awesome things. Starting with a creative exercise, we will put to bed all your fears and inhibitions of 'not being an artist or creative person' - whatever that is! Then we will dive in to our workshop project - creating gorgeous Modern Wreaths. Enjoy great company, drinks, and a welcoming atmosphere at National on 8th Avenue.
What do I get for the event fee?
Ticket price includes:
- admission for 2.5 hours of making. cool. shit.
- an exercise to open creative channels
- all supplies
- your creation (1 unique wreath)
What do you mean exactly by 'all supplies'?
Supplies will include branches, pine, foliage, and other decorative elements like berries, string and embellishments.
What time do I need to be there?
At least 15 minutes prior if you are attending with friends and would like to sit together. If you are planning on eating dinner, you are absolutely encouraged to eat during the workshop, however we have found most people like to focus on the craft. Feel free to come early and eat beforehand, or you are welcome to stay after and enjoy some eats.
What do I need to bring?
An open-mind and positive energy.
What if I'm not an artist or creative person?
No such thing. We believe everyone has an innate ability to create; for some people it just takes a little more practice than others, or, more time to find the right creative outlet. That is why we offer all different creative workshops that teach and highlight varieties of skills. "Every child is an artist. The problem is how we remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso
What if I haven't done art or a craft since Kindergarten?
No problem. Our workshop was created for people with all levels of artistic abilities. Whether you've never picked up a paint brush or create on a regular basis, you can always learn and develop new skills from our creative workshops!
Who will be teaching the workshop?

An artist since she could pick up a crayon, Kathryn has an abundance of experience in many different creative endeavours, as well as previous studies at the Alberta College of Art and Design. Creation is an active part of her daily life and she is always seeking out new avenues for expression.
Your other facilitator and co-founder of Maker will be Sarah. She is a Bachelor of Design graduate from the Alberta College of Art and Design and currently works as a graphic designer. She too has a love for a variety of artistic methods and makes creativity a priority in her life.
