Cold Wax and oil workshop at Elora Centre for the Arts

Last weekend found me teaching a cold wax and oil workshop at the Elora Centre for the Arts.

It was a pleasure to be in this historic building with it’s vast studio, high ceilings and wonderful light- a perfect environment for learning, making and playing. (A big thank you to Bear and Jane)

Participants arrived open to possibility. They played, worked hard and pushed themselves, exploring ideas with tools and techniques. A few images from the workshop:

 The historic town of Elora is well worth a visit.‘Perched on the edge of a spectacular gorge and nestled along the banks of the Grand & Irvine River lies the enchanting village of Elora, Ontario’ The region is renowned for the spectacular Elora Gorge with its 80 foot limestone cliffs descending into the Grand and Irvine Rivers. It is a cultural haven- rich in live music, visual and performing arts as well as architecture, restaurants and one of a kind shops.’ ’
