Lumsden and District Arts Council Workshops

The Lumsden and District Arts Council is offering two workshops this winter that may be of interest! Priority for registration is given to local residents up to 2 weeks before each class (“local” means you live within the Lumsden school district), but if there are spots left others can join!

Making Your Mark… An Introduction to Wheat Paste Paper Decoration

image00

date:  Sunday, February 5

time:  9:00 – 4:00 p.m.

location:  Centennial Hall, Lumsden, SK

Wheat Paste is an incredibly expressive medium which allows you to embed “your mark” directly on a wide range of papers and fabrics. Think “finger painting for adults” – making marks and designs with simple tools, stencils and stamps.  We will then start adding multiple layers with other collage materials, colored pencils, and felt pens.  

They’re fun and easy to make.  You’ll go home with a large supply of unique papers for future projects – for cards, collages, book covers, or gift wrappings.

Book Yourself In

image00-1

date:  Sunday, February 12

time:  9:00 – 4:00 p.m.

location:  Centennial Hall, Lumsden, SK

In this workshop you will learn the folding, cutting, and some simple sewing procedures involved in making both paper and hard covered books as well as the basics of bookmaking.  We’ll then proceed to variations of accordion books – some are sewn, some are simply folded, and all of them are fun!  All are easy, quick books and ideal as handcrafted gifts.  Books are a wonderful way to use your own handmade and/or decorated papers as well as combining with other commercial and recycled papers. No bookbinding experience is necessary.

Fees and Registration

Fees for each class are $75 for members and $85 for non-members. Membership fees are $10 per year.

To register, or for more information, please contact: maderbd@sasktel.net

To ensure your place in the class send a cheque made out to Lumsden and District Arts Council to Box 1214, Lumsden, SK, S0G 3C0 or bring the cheque to ArtSpace on Tuesday morning or Thursday evening.
