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 beautiful Rustic Ornaments to bring a touch of the outdoors into your home. Enjoy great company, drinks, and a welcoming atmosphere at Double Zero at The Core.
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 (3 unique ornaments)
What do you mean exactly by "all supplies"?
Supplies will include wreaths, feathers, trimmings, crystal accents, ribbon, and wood slices.
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?
Your primary facilitator will be Jennifer Rondeau. Jennifer is a mixed media artistan who loves breathing new life into repurposed and reclaimed materials.
