9:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Enjoy the luxury of learning, exploring, and creating over a week-long course. Within the setting of an art school, with five days set aside for creative play, dive into experimenting with juxtaposing found objects, photo transfer and beauty from nature. Immerse yourself in art and discover inspiration in the Haliburton highlands. Find yourself where art is happening.
Juxtapose fibre art with natural materials to create a framed, stitched, three-dimensional textile assemblage. Allow the rich textures, brilliant colours and nuanced lines of stitched textiles to interact with the mysterious beauty of the imprinted stone, the gentle branch or a fragile leaf. Incorporate fabric transfers of precious photos, and tell a story with the remnants of an heirloom quilt. Create an evocative and exciting composition that combines the work of our hands with that of Mother Nature's. Work with a variety of textiles, including remnants of our own stitched, embroidered and embellished work, new fabrics, and found pieces of textiles that catch your eye.
